Our mission is to help using Virtual Reality to solve real business problems


The HACKVENTION event series educates, connects and inspires VR hackers and industry professionals to experiment alongside each other to generate ideas and built solutions in multidisciplinary teams on VR hackathons and in workshops.

This way VR developers, designers, and storytellers join non-VR professionals to work on cutting-edge topics with immediate applications while immersing them in the global Virtual Reality ecosystem. We are working together with leading VR hardware and software manufacturers to supply the infrastructure and create an atmosphere supporting creativity.

On 3000 m² specifically dedicated to VR, AR and 360° content, the CeBIT is as a major global fair for business and industry an excellent opportunity to present and discover the latest soft-and hardware of for example HTC, Sennheiser, XMG, VRBase and many other exhibitors as well as aspiring companies.
