Virtual reality will transform entertainment, education, business, healthcare and more. Behind these breakthrough innovations sits a broadband infrastructure that must evolve with it. To help unlock the opportunities of a virtual reality ecosystem, how should policymakers support innovation and investment in high-speed internet infrastructure?

The Internet Innovation Alliance invites you to explore these questions with us over cocktails:

•  What opportunities will virtual reality technology unlock over the next decade?
•  How should the broadband network evolve to support the growth of virtual reality?
•  How can policymakers best support innovation and virtual reality?

Featured speakers include:

Anjney Midha Founding Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers (KPCB) Edge
