As the XR industry continues to develop ways to accelerate consumer and enterprise adoption, it’s all about gaining knowledge and network. And the timing is right to examine product and business models, given VR’s early phases.

With that backdrop, VRX 2018 is coming to San Francisco in September to examine XR’s commercial impact. To do that, it has assembled A-list speakers from Google, Microsoft, HTC and Cadillac — a roster that represents both supply and demand sides of the XR equation.
