About VRazeTheBar

Virtual Events and Conferences

VRazeTheBar is an organization dedicated to providing awesome virtual experiences as a complement to real-world and online events such as conferences, seminars and trade shows. We use a variety of virtual platforms that work in tandem with traditional face-to-face activities to provide a truly immersive experience for fans, artists, authors, exhibitors, presenters and other attendees who cannot attend a special event in person.

VRazeTheBar was founded by an experienced team of business, convention and technology experts and we are proud to be partnering with Gen Con to provide the first virtual Gen Con gaming experience on the Linden Labs Second Life 3D virtual platform. Our founders:
