The event will be used to launch several new VR products with the potential to totally shake up not just the gaming industry but many other non-gaming spheres.
Dave Ranyard of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is already excited for the event: “I'm really looking forward to SouthWest VR - I think it’s going to be great to see different perspectives of people working in VR - and it really feels like a fantastic, grass roots event."
A special mention goes to recently signed up speakers; Duncan Burbidge from The Third Floor Inc, Mark Washbrook and Paul Colls, both from development studio Fierce Kaiju.
SouthWest VR will be hosted by the renowned games journalist Will Freeman and is supported by; Invest in Bristol&Bath, Creative Skillset, the Digital Cultures Research Centre, Webstart Bristol, the Centre for Digital Entertainment, the BMT Group and Unity 3D.
