If you saw the keynote from Microsoft Ignite Conference March 2021, you saw amazing things happening in Microsoft’s Virtual Reality platform, AltspaceVR. Next week we’re taking Table Topics at Microsoft Ignite into VR! Register at and then RSVP for one of our six Table Topics in AltspaceVR – keep in mind: Space is limited, so reserve your spot ASAP!

You do NOT need a VR headset, though if you have one that’s supported by AltspaceVR, by all means, immerse yourself! Whether you’re on a VR headset or the 2D app for PC or Mac, the magic of VR will let you have multiple conversations in the same room at the same time – it will be kind of like wandering the halls and expo in the conference center and talking to other people, but in avatar form.
