DETrealities Conference

Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality & Augmented Reality in S.E. Michigan.

Grant Chirpus, our VR-lovin’ chicken mascot, has a dream: To bring together everyone who’s doing Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality in Southeastern Michigan.

Along with an all-star cast of speakers and presenters, we’re going to make that dream a reality in Detroit on
Friday, October 6, 2017.
Together we can share what we’re doing, compare notes, talk best practices and form new connections.

What we’ll do


The development of VR technologies and its kin, especially in Southeast Michigan.


Best practices by industry leaders in the region.


Breakfast, lunch and happy hour are provided–you’ll have ample time to chat and network.

What it looks like

  • One day, TED-talk-style conference (10- and 20-minute talks plus panels and keynotes).
  • Held in downtown Detroit at Grand Circus Headquarters.
  • Expos from leading AR/VR regional companies.
