Los Angeles attendees will have the opportunity to experience VRstudios’ leading virtual reality technology firsthand during the event’s Tech Showcase. “Stampede partnered with VRstudios earlier this year because we know that virtual reality is going to have a profound impact on the pro AV industry,” Kelly said. “The platform and products developed by VRstudios make it possible for our 20,000 resellers to help end-user customers across all of our vertical markets to make virtual reality an integral part of their enterprise. We are very much looking forward to the demonstration of their cutting-edge technologies at our final 2016 stop in Los Angeles.” The Los Angeles agenda will begin at 10:00 a.m.with the opening of the Tech Showcase Exhibits.
