About Laval Virtual
 
Created in 1999 at the instigation of the former Minister of Research and Mayor of Laval, François d'Aubert, Laval Virtual brings together a large number of Virtual Reality players, ranging from teaching and research to businesses and the general public, in a single location.
Since its first edition in June 1999, Laval Virtual has been a great success. More than 8,000 participants, extensive media coverage and strong participation from Japanese universities propelled Laval to the high-tech world4.
Over the years, the International Meetings of Virtual Reality have become the International Meetings of Virtual Technologies and Uses, no longer representing only Virtual Reality as a whole but also Augmented Reality, interactive 3D, Robotics, the Internet of Things and all Innovative and Converging Technologies.
Thanks to a strong growth of 20 % exhibitors in 2013, Laval Virtual expanded in 2014: an extension of 1,000 m² was thus added, of which 300 m² was dedicated to the exhibition7. In 2016, the total exhibition area will reach 5,500m², a growth that goes hand in hand with the strong emerging demand from potential users.
Laval Virtual's success continues with the emergence of a new project in Laval: the Laval Virtual Center, which will be launched in 2017.
