VR NOW Con & Awards – Europe’s premier conference for Immersive Media. Started in 2016 as a way to bring the international community of VR creatives, business developers and technological masterminds to Berlin and Potsdam, the most exciting region in the world. Forgive us the bias.
In 2018, the VR NOW Con & Awards becomes part of something even bigger – the MediaTech Con. MediaTech Con is the key convention for future media technologies and the business behind entertainment. Together with VR NOW CON & Awards and Changing the Picture (CTPiX), MediaTech Con offers a common platform with pioneering talks and workshops within a two-day program in Potsdam-Babelsberg.
Partner Events. VR NOW started working with partners such as the European Film Market (EFM) of Berlinale on specially tailored subevents for their existing formats. Since 2017 we host events within the framework of EFM Horizon. At the EFM VR NOW Summit you will explore the opportunities of Virtual Reality and 360 video – as a technology, as a platform, as a medium – together with us and our partners. This event is dedicated to professionals from the film and TV business who are fascinated by the artistic possibilities and business opportunities of immersive media.
Event and award show are hosted by Virtual Reality e.V. Berlin-Brandenburg, the VR association of the capital region, organized by Booster Space – Made with Love in Berlin and funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg
