Tickets are still available for this year’s in-person event in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The International AIXR VR Awards are only a few months away and things are already heating up with some big announcements. Not only was it announced that the premier awards show would be returning to a live in-person event, but they also announced that they are moving the ceremonies to Rotterdam, Netherlands as part of a collaboration with Immersive Tech Week (formally VRDays Europe).
This partnership between ITW and The VR Awards will play a significant role in connecting with a much larger audience of VR enthusiasts and professionals as we see an increase in metaverse adoption.
Starting in 2015 as VRDays, the event has since been renamed Immersive Tech Week in 2021 due to the rapid developments in the industry and growth of the audience as multiple industries pushed for more development and application of XR technologies. Their primary focus is to harness and expand the potential of the European immersive technology industry at a global level by uniting the XR community, inspiring creative minds, and driving the business forward to make a positive difference in the near future.
Benjamin de Wit, co-founder and Festival Director of VRDays Europe said, “This cooperation to bring the VR Awards to Immersive Tech Week in Rotterdam, adds a wonderful independent global celebration of excellence in VR to a week where industry leaders, academics, artists, professionals and XR enthusiasts come together to connect, share ideas and get inspired on immersive technology.”
With a judging panel of 70 industry leaders in VR currently going through multiple categories of finalists to choose the experience that they feel is a highlight of 2022, there is already some big buzz on who could walk away winners. As you would guess there are some big names in the running but also a few new startups as well; all with amazing VR achievements worthy of a win. You can check out the list of nominees here.
Like the previous events before COVID, this year’s VR Awards is going all-out with their live black-tie event. And, as mentioned earlier, the award ceremony is moving from London to Rotterdam, Netherlands, and will be hosted in the prestigious de Doelen venue. You can purchase a Full Ticket, Full Table, or a Full VIP Table. All three options include a 3-course dinner and drinks. That said, you get bigger perks with the Full VIP Table, which offers a premier award experience that includes:
- 10 VIP After Party Tickets
- 5 bottles of extra wine
- Premium table placement
- 2 complimentary champagne bottles
- Branding on table
Full pass-holders to ITM will be able to attend a special private 3-course dinner and a VIP party, and you will be able to watch the ceremonies from the de Doelen upper circle and gallery seating alongside the VR Award finalists and attendees.
If you are looking to attend The VR Awards and would like to get tickets to the full ITW program, which includes the exclusive dinner, you will need to act quickly as tickets tend to sell out quickly.
The 6th International VR Awards happen on December 1st in Rotterdam, the Netherlands at the de Doelen venue. Tickets and more information on the award ceremony can be found here.
