Japan VR Summit 3 (JVRS3) was held from Oct 11th to Oct 13th in 2017 at the Tokyo BIG SIGHT. This time, this event was held by both GREE/VR Consortium and Nikkei BP. The scale was expanded from the previous JVRS2, with an increase in size, and participation by incredible speakers globally. The program sessions and demonstrations were a great success.
The main venue hall programs were comprised of 6 panel discussions covering topics related to “The Roadmap to $100 billion VR/AR Market”, “China VR Market Trends”, “Will Japan's VR arcades be accepted worldwide?”, “How VR/AR/MR attracts startups”, and “Latest Investor Interest in VR/AR Market”, “Manufacturing and VR/MR Technology”. Leading VR/AR players participated as speakers, and shared their invaluable and broad-ranging experiences. The VR/AR demo booths were a popular attractions with long lines of participants eager to engage in the VR/AR experiences being offered. The Welcome Lunch and the Post-Event Party were popular with those excited to expand their professional VR/AR networks.
JVRS proved once again to be a great forum to support the evolution and growth of the VR/AR market, as well as the VR/AR platform as a whole.
