Things are starting to heat up here behind the scenes with the VancouVR Fair organization team. Vancouver is starting to wake up from our usual Vancouver months of rain, and there’s a lot happening in the city in the upcoming months. Let’s have a look at the happenings!
Vancouver VR Community News
As of now, we are basically SOLD OUT of tickets for the VancouVR Fair. Our team is looking into expanding our capacity, but we’re not able to make any promises. All promotion codes for VANVR members have been spoken for. There’s a few tickets left, buy yours today!
In addition to the VancouVR Fair, we have announced that it will be the final event before the fall, as we are exploring other formats in the interim. We are ready to start talking about it:
- Are you interested in Beat Saber?
- Are you interested in eSports?
- Is competitive gaming an interest of yours?
- Do you have former ties to the likes of Street Fighter, DDR, Marvel vs. Capcom?
- Are you into mixed reality, or Twitch streams?
Our team wants to bring Vancouver’s first ever VR tournament, in conjunction with Vancouver Street Battle’s monthly events. Interested in being a part of this? Email us at email@example.com
