VR Events is a Virtual Reality and 360 production company based in South Africa, Cape Town that is pioneering innovative ways to experience and interact with education, entertainment and the working environment through VR and 360.
VR Events was originally founded, in August 2016, by Brendan Louw and Nigel Adriaanse with the idea of taking entertainment to a whole new level with the use of virtual reality.
With the events, computer science and photography experience that Brendan has, combined with Nigel’s years of networking and property experience, the two only needed someone to tackle the VR software development division before they could make headway into the VR industry.
In January 2017, Shane Marks was brought onboard as CTO to head up VR Event’s software development. With the knowledge and experience Shane brought on board, the trio officially established the company in February 2017 and ventured forth into further partnerships to make VR Events the driving force in VR and 360 developments that it is today.
