4. Laval Virtual
Not exactly a company per se, but worth mentioning anyway: Created in 1999, Laval Virtual was founded at the initiative of the former Minister of Research and mayor of Laval, François d’Aubert.
The mission of Laval Virtual — The 1st International Exhibition and Conference on VR/AR/Metaverse and Immersive Techniques — is to serve, inform and animate the community of users of VR/AR and immersive techniques in its BtoB uses through meeting and discussion platforms and information services.
In its more than 20 years of existence, Laval Virtual has established itself as a key facilitator for organizations in the VR/AR sector. It brings together and animates a community of professionals throughout the year, for which it holds shows in Europe and Asia, conference programmes and provides various information services (technological watch, publications, workshop reports, etc.).
