ABOUT VRTO

VRTO Spatial Media World Conference & Expo – the award-winning, critically-acclaimed, industry insiders’ favourite show returns live to Toronto for a special 2-day event in the heart of the city’s media arts district. 

Apple is finally playing its spatial media card. The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was rife with new augmented reality glasses and even new VR headset from SONY. Meta released Quest 3, and its numbers are rapidly climbing to one of the top platforms on the massive Steam game marketplace.

For 9 years, VRTO has been a vital catalyst for ethical new ventures and opportunities in the rapidly evolving world of media, arts, entertainment, industry, education, and enterprise. Attendees include C-suite executives, investors, hackers, gamers, developers, artists, and leading education, healthcare, and enterprise experts. 

Position your brand as a leader in the limitless potential of spatial media, immersive technologies, and emerging technologies. Showcase your brand, meet and network with a global audience at VRTO 2024!

  • Virtual Museums, Archaeology, and Cultural Anthropology
  • NERFS/Gaussian/Dolphin Splatter
  • Live Virtual Performance Training
  • The Revenge of LBEs
  • Generative AI for Virtual Production
