The HMC is pleased to be participating as a media partner for one of the most significant and buzzworthy events at this year's Comic-Con, VR CON.

With VR projected to become a 2 Billion dollar segment of the entertainment industry (that's just entertainment), it's no surprise that this year's Comic-Con has doubled its VR blueprint. Leading the charge are the good folks at VR CON.

VR CON @ COMIC-CON Expands Into FUTURISM & TECH PAVILION at San Diego International Comic-Con July 19-23

Official VR event of San Diego Comic-Con to kick off with Media event July 19th showcasing the latest innovations from Hollywood, the gaming industry, manufacturers of VR, AR, robotics technology, artists and more

VR CON @ COMIC-CON, the hub for Virtual Reality experiences and technology, expands this year to become FUTURISM & TECH @ COMIC-CON. This official event of Comic-Con International San Diego has added more space dedicated to Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) attractions from the likes of Paramount Pictures and NBC Universal, debuts other groundbreaking technologies, and infuses art and visual expression. Global superstars The Black Eyed Peas will present their new AR experience based on the graphic novel “Masters of the Sun - The Zombie Chronicles” (Marvel), with AR hardware partner Mira. The event takes place July 19-23 at the Omni Hotel in downtown San Diego, across from the Convention Center.

VR CON was created in 2016 in conjunction with San Diego International Comic-Con to celebrate the best and boldest in the exploding areas of VR, AR, and MR. This year under its new banner, FUTURISM AND TECH PAVILION @ COMIC-CON, VR CON has more than doubled in size (to over 10,000 square feet) and expanded its attractions to include the A.I. Innovation Fair by Mentor InSight, elements of the Fleet Science Center, and other tech experiences in robotics, wearable tech, and art.

VR CON’s FUTURISM AND TECH PAVILION @ COMIC-CON showcases the latest from the leading equipment makers, film studios, television networks, game builders, scientists, publishers, brands, artists, designers, influencers and innovators. Attendees will have access to the latest developments as well as hands-on experience with the attractions.

As pop culture and fan conventions have become a billion-dollar business, the biggest and oldest show of them all, San Diego Comic-Con, continues to stand apart from the rest not only because of its size (upwards of 200,000 attendees not including the spill over attendance onto the streets) and influence (billions of media impressions generated over the weekend), but because of its unique history and mission. Comic-Con began in 1970 as a fan-organized event, and in the 1970s became a 501(c)3 educational nonprofit dedicated to "creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular art forms."
