Developers, creators, producers, and designers in the VR world will convene to learn about the newest developments, test new product, and learn more about the growing industry around VR. The conference has been around for 4 years, but this year they will be celebrating the last 5 years in VR, hence the name Oculus Connect 5.

Attendees can expect to get a first see prototypes for new products, as well hear speakers on a variety of topics including gaming & E-sports, and Social VR. The breadth of topics this year gives us a look into how Facebook is planning to expand the technology as an extension of the social network, with topics on how to drive engagement on VR platforms.

The majority of the conference is by and for developers. We’re looking forward to seeing how brands will leverage this new platform to engage consumers. By its nature, VR seems destined to become a new frontier in social advertising. Organizers for this event seem to be onto this too, with programing geared towards marketers.
