Interesting in becoming in sponsor?

VRWS is this rare event where sponsors are 100% part of the action: They spend time with attendees, facilitate roundtables to help them solve their business issues, can have a booth to present their activity, and can apply to be speakers.

VRWS attendees want to talk with industry vendors and listing sites because we are all part of the industry. This is a way for everyone to get together, network, and become insiders.

September 16 & 17, 2021 In Person, at the Imperial Palace in Annecy, France

Annecy is also otherwise known as the “Venice of the Alps”. Here, pure clear water runs from the lake into the flower-lined canals that flow through the old town, the historical center of Annecy, and its picturesque streets.

The Imperial Palace’s immaculate and majestic Belle Epoque façade is set against the blue backdrop of the lake. Its silhouette has been marking the Annecy landscape for more than a century.
