Microsoft, ARM and CCP among the cutting-edge sponsors of VRDC

The inaugural standalone edition of the Virtual Reality Developers Conference kicks off this November, and today we'd like to quickly run down some of the cutting-edge tech companies who have already signed on to sponsor the show.

Among them are tech giants Microsoft, ARM and Qualcomm, industry leaders who are invested in realizing the full potential of virtual- and augmented-reality technology.

The growing list of VRDC sponsors also includes CCP Games, developers of the high-profile VR game EVE Valkyrie, as well as the eye-tracking VR headset company Fove and the Japanese game publisher/developer Colopl, which recently launched a $50 million global VR investment fund as it works to develop and publish its own VR games.

And that's not all -- more sponsors are expected to get involved with VRDC, and some of them will be sponsoring their own expert talks on the VRDC Partners Track, which aims to provide sessions that enable companies to communicate the value of their tool or service, then educate and empower developers to put it to great use.

So head over to the VRDC website now and register to attend the conference, which will feature a plethora of great VR/AR talks spanning games, entertainment, and beyond into subjects such as healthcare, journalism, travel, manufacturing, retail, live events, real estate, training, and so much more.

And if you have a great tool, service, product, or platform that enables developers to create innovative VR/AR experiences, you can contact [email protected] or visit UBM's VRDC Sponsorships hub to learn how to become a VRDC sponsor!

VRDC 2016 will take place November 2-3 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. For more information on VRDC 2016, visit the show's official website and subscribe to regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.

Gamasutra, VRDC and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Americas.
