And attendees will get the latest updates on upcoming Oculus technology, along with feedback from the Oculus team in hands-on labs. Keynote speakers include Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe, founder Palmer Luckey, chief technology officer John Carmack and chief scientist Michael Abrash; the keynotes will be livestreamed.

Oculus Connect will take place at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, California, from Sept. 19-20. The first day's schedule will run from 5-8 p.m. PT, while the second day will go from 8 a.m. to midnight. Registration applications will open up July 10 on the Oculus Connect website.
