Virtual Events

"Peace Boat US is an International NGO working to promote peace and sustainable development through educational programs. During the United Nations World Oceans Week of 2020, we collaborated with Laval Virtual and their dedicated team to host the inaugural "Ocean Innovation Hub" in partnership with Restore Coral and more than 40 international partners working towards innovative solutions for the oceans. Their services to support our keynote speakers as well as the organizing team in setting up the gallery space, visual arts, music and main stage speakers was a huge support for the development of our virtual event. As pioneers in this field, it is important to have a multi-lingual team that can help to make sure both the users and organizers are able to conduct the event for high-level partners as well as civil society and youth. We look forward to working with Laval again for our upcoming partnerships online."

"Laval Virtual is a must-attend event for Miscrosoft. It is both an opportunity to meet the entire VR, AR, MR ecosystem in France, but also to exchange with our customers who use these technologies on a daily basis and thus benefit from their feedback. Even with its expansion from year to year and in particular its internationalization, Laval Virtual has maintained its human and friendly approach which is very pleasant."
