Congratulations to the IVRPA conference team! IVRPA Tokyo 2018 was a dynamic four-day conference filled with talks, workshops and demonstrations about 360º VR photographic and video imaging; it was an intense, inspiring concentration of the world’s experts in the field, sharing their knowledge and experiences. This was made possible by an enormous amount of work behind the scenes, and also by the support and backing of our many sponsors and especially our event partners, Facebook and Blend Media.

There are other VR conferences, but none are like this. The IVRPA is a non-profit organisation that exists to promote, develop and educate people about 360 VR media. Our members are at the forefront of the VR imaging industries, and at 20 years old we have an unmatched history and perspective.

If you are an IVRPA member, thank you for your support! You are an important part of our worldwide family. If you’re not currently with us, I’ll just mention here that joining gives you full access to the four days of talk and workshop video archives from the Tokyo conference, plus all the previous events...

We have one announcement to make:
Since 2004 we have been the International Virtual Reality Photography Association. As of June 1, we are the International Virtual Reality Professionals Association, a small but important name change that makes clear our inclusion of all forms of 360 VR imaging. Here’s to a bright, exciting future for our members and everything we create!
