The best VR experiences are designed to be enjoyed en masse, and include spectators not as passive observers, but as active participants in the fun! This session is designed to bring together leaders in the location-based entertainment (LBE) and virtual reality worlds. These leaders will explore how game developers and attraction managers can provide immersive experiences that lower the barriers to entry for newcomers and raise the profile of the quickly emerging industry.


Attendees will learn what makes the most successful LBE VR experiences and games work and what doesn't. They will gain a fresh perspective on the role of sociability in VR, turning VR isolationism on its head and opening new pathways for VR adoption and genres. This panel will also provide an in-depth analysis of the LBE VR industry as a whole.

Intended Audience

This talk is for any content creator or stakeholder in the virtual reality or location-based entertainment industries. Attendees should be familiar with LBE and VR, but are not required to have any specialized knowledge.
