original details

I am excited to announce the 2nd annual VR for Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) themed NYVR Meetup. We have another completely stacked agenda with the leading companies and thought leaders in this vertical. Each company will have a few minutes to introduce their technology and then we will spend the rest of the time networking and demo’ing their products.

In addition, we will have some special guests from Warner Brother’s “Ready Player One” promotional team attending. We are so excited for the upcoming release on 3/29 and rumor has it, Warner Brothers may even have some special gifts/surprises for the NYVR community so don’t miss out on coming to the event!
