What people are saying

People had a lot of great things to say about the first edition of CVR. Everyone – from attendees to exhibitors – was blown away by the incredible excitement Vancouver has for virtual reality. Here’s what a few industry leaders had to say.

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!
