“Keram knows how to put on a hell of a show
(the best when it comes to VR, in my opinion)”

~ Blake J. Harris, Author of History of the Future, Console Wars

“VRTO 2019 was a profound experience. Not only was there a fantastic array of impressive and insightful presentations, but the caliber of all speakers and attendees was extremely high. I met a tremendous number of like-minded and super passionate industry people, but even more importantly the connections were meaningful. The conversations I was lucky enough to participate in were important, and we have several new relationships which are already yielding exciting results only a week after the event. The talk I gave was heard sincerely and appreciated at a level which is unprecedented in my experience, even after presenting at many conferences, and I learned a ton from the folks who I connected with. Most importantly, the environment that Keram created was safe, diverse, candid and inspiring. I could not recommend this event highly enough, and cannot wait for next year.”
