The International Virtual Reality Photography Association Conference
Welcome to the Belfast 2019 IVRPA Conference!
IVRPA 360° Virtual Reality Panoramic Photography & Video Conference - June 10-13th, 2019 in Belfast, Northern Ireland
Our 14th annual conference will feature 4 days of talks, workshops, panels, and exhibitors, where you will learn from and meet the key players at the forefront of the 360º VR industry.
Bring your pano rig and discover Belfast this summer. The city is vibrant with music and street theater. Discover unique shopping treasures, or indulge in award-winning markets and restaurants. Enjoy great nights out at some amazing rooftop bars and cozy pubs and catch up with friends and colleagues who happen to be the most talented people in the 360 space.
What’s in store?
This year we will not only have our usual informative talks and workshops, but we will also have unique networking opportunities using b2match, a remarkably cool business matchmaking app that is practically synonymous with “business speed-dating”.
With b2match, matchmaking ensures opportunities to connect with other IVRPA professional members to potentially foster valuable business relationships. Profiling, matching, meeting requests, agenda setting, location reserving, follow-ups and evaluation are all part what b2match has to offer to help you make your time spent in Belfast well spent. You can even use this platform to do anything from offering your expertise on stereo panoramas, to finding work, to discovering the next director for your next VR production!
Pro Tip: Complete your profile on b2match today and start making connections before the conference!
