Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Social VR platforms like High Fidelity enable creators to present live events in a completely virtual environment for an audience distributed around the world. We will introduce creators to producing and performing live Theater in VR. Our team will cover everything from hardware setup to avatar selection and rehearsing on a virtual stage. We will also introduce tips for best practices and acting technique in VR based on our ongoing research with professional actors and High Fidelity.
