Each year we release our annual alternative guide of VR professionals to follow. It’s a trend we at Virtual Umbrella started after seeing the same names pop up again and again.

The list has always aimed to be reflective and include names who have done impressive things over the previous months. This year, we’ve taken a slightly alternative approach to look forward at the upcoming year.

These fifty VR professionals we’ve compiled have amazing things planned for 2020, so make sure to follow them on Twitter and keep and eye out for their exciting work.
