VR Oslo 2016 was a hit!

This was the start of a year long collaboration with Oslo Science Park who organizes the Cutting Edge Festival, which is part of Oslo Innovation Week. 




In 2017 we have many of our previous guests from abroad attending again to provide their knowledge, insights and innovations within their respective fields related to VR. 

VR Oslo is gathering a European team. These are individuals that have helped shape many of the communities and standards in VR and 360 imaging. They have a vast network of international connections, where most of the companies and people in the network have been around since the beginnings of the VR wave in the 90's, some even before.
