The first edition of VRDC (held alongside GDC 2016) attracted top tier press from technology and mainstream media outlets. Coverage highlights:
Wall Street Journal – VR to Take Over GDC – Virtual and augmented reality are poised to hit it big with applications for gaming, travel and health care.
CNET – It’s a VR World and We’re All Just Living in it
Venture Beat – Sony Announces Playstation VR Will Launch in October
Media badges for VRDC are limited in number and will be issued only to representatives from news outlets, major analyst firms and leading industry blogs.
To qualify for a complimentary media pass, applicants must cover the technology industry on a regular basis and present bylined articles or reports published within the past six months. Publishers, marketing/PR professionals and other sales or C–level non–media titles will not be accepted.
Media passes will not be issued to photographers without formal commissioning from a news organization or those writing confidential content or content solicited by an exhibiting company. Private consultants paid by an individual company are not eligible for a media pass, and should request a pass from the sponsoring company.
Media credentials granted for previous UBM events do not guarantee a media pass to VRDC – applications will be individually reviewed for each event.
Please review our VRDC video and recording policy.
At the event, you will be required to present a business card, government issued picture ID, and proof of confirmation. On occasion, for on–site applicants we will require articles on your organization's masthead and contact information for your assignment editor should we need it to validate your credentials before issuing you a media pass.
Pre–registration is strongly encouraged due to limited space. Should you attempt to attain credentials on–site, we cannot guarantee complimentary media admission.
Please contact the VRDC Press Team with any questions.
