Over the weekend the IVRPA board took a serious look at where things stood with the Las Vegas conference. As early bird discounts came to a close, registrations have been surprisingly disappointing despite a stellar lineup of speakers from the immersive media space and a significant amount of promotion. Realistically, there seemed no way to turn that around sufficiently over the next two months without facing a dramatic financial loss. As a result, we made the very difficult decision to cancel the in-person conference.

While this is more than disappointing, not all may be lost. We already have a successful webinar series. We are asking all the Speakers if they would participate in a series of Webinars to provide a good substitute for the conference. We lose the invaluable in-person networking but retain the presentation with live Q&A. and presentations would be far more accessible to people around the world both live and on demand. Everyone who has participated in these webinars has found them quite rewarding.

We appreciate your support of the conference and wished a better outcome for everyone.

Please accept our sincerest apologies at this disappointing turn of events.

The IVRPA Board of Directors
