Canada's Biggest Virtual Reality Event

Founded by Archiact, CVR is the premier event uniting consumers, developers and businesses to experience groundbreaking new immersive reality technology. Growing the event to a stage that is bigger and grander than one company alone, we happily handed the event off to VR/ AR Association to build it to the next level. CVR has then been rebranded as the VR/AR Global Summit. For more details, please visit the VRARA event site.

Thanks again for putting together such an amazing expo. It really was the most organized expo we’ve been a part of, and I know that all the pros and consumers that attended had a fantastic time. We made some new leads, new contacts, and even some new friends.”

I had a blast doing the event, it was fun and very fresh to actually talk to the consumers directly instead of just developers in these VR conferences.

It was a fantastic event. After many years in development and demoing at industry events it was great to finally be able to showcase at a consumer VR event, especially locally. We were blown away at the attendance, which is such a great sign for the future of VR!.

It’s amazing to think this was only the first year of CVR — the sophistication of the exhibitors, the energy of the event, and the sheer volume of attendees literally overflowing the aisles of the exhibition was beyond anyone's expectations. The CVR show has successfully put Vancouver on the map as a powerhouse for virtual reality!
