ATTENTION NYVR MEMBERS!!!
For December, We will be holding a very special event at SAP's offices. The theme is VR for corporate use cases & the goal is to get as many business executives to attend along with the NYVR community. I am asking everyone's help in bringing "non-VR" folk to the event. If you know of a business executive (c-level, innovation officer, etc...) that is interested & available to attend, connect me via email (email@example.com) prior to 11/24/17 & I will add you both to the VIP list. I will open any remaining spots to the NYVR community on 11/25/17.
Below is the list of amazing demo's that are lined up. If you have another VR/AR corporate use case & would like to demo, hit me up because we have some extra room & it will be amazing exposure.
