Amir Esmaeil BozorgzadehPlease sum up your conference session in one sentence. 
An action-packed wrap up of the recent Global WebVR Hackathon that was run in partnership with Mozilla, Oculus, Google, Samsung, Microsoft, and dozens of other companies invested in the most accessible and democratic form of virtual reality: web-based.

Who needs to hear what you’ve got to say?   
Any stakeholder in the VR industry. 

What is the biggest challenge facing the VR/AR/MR sector this year and why?Bad/underwhelming content. I've written two articles concerning this particular topic:

  1. http://venturebeat.com/2017/03/04/the-vr-industry-needs-better-content-turns-to-accelerators/

  2. http://venturebeat.com/2016/11/26/the-vr-industrys-biggest-threat-is-underwhelming-content/ 

What next for VR in the games industry?  
Applying lessons learned in experiments made thus far in social VR, including gesturing, in order to bring in more 'presence' into the experience.  

And generally, where do you see VR/AR/MR in five years’ time?  
In five years’ time, it'll be normal for households to have a couple headsets lying around in the living rooms, but most revenue will come from enterprise-based (like AEC industry) applications.

Why are you looking forward to speaking at/attending VRWC17?
I am excited to share the highlights from the hackathon and to press on the case of prioritising WebVR for the industry.
