Fireside Chat

Benjamin de Wit, Festival Director, VRDays

Join an open forum discussion with Benjamin de Wit, Founder and Festival Director of VR Days Europe, to discuss how events play the best possible facilitating role for the XR community, and the lessons he learned along the way since VR Days Europe first event in 2015.

Benjamin de Wit is Founder and Festival Director of VR Days Europe. Benjamin’s first experience with VR in 2013 inspired him to bring together professionals and creatives from across the globe to explore the potential of XR technology and its ability to have a profound impact on the world we live in. He realised the power of VR to enable us to see and experience in new ways, and as a tool that will change the way we interact and do business.
