Announcing TechCrunch’s AI and VR/AR Pavilions at Disrupt SF — Apply now for free exhibit space

At TechCrunch’s upcoming Disrupt SF (Sept. 12-14), artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual/augmented reality (AR/VR) will be a big subject on the main stage as well as a featured presence on the exhibit floor, where TechCrunch will host a startup pavilion for each category. Because there are lots of very early stage startups in AI and VR/AR, we are offering five companies in each category the chance to exhibit free of charge. 

Here’s what exhibitors in the Disrupt SF special pavilions for VR/AR and AI can expect:

  • Two individual Disrupt tickets per company for all three days of Disrupt SF
  • Exhibition table one day (VR/AR Monday, AI Tuesday) in the pavilion
  • Invitation to reception for VR/AR on Monday or AI on Tuesday
  • Participation in Crunchmatch, TechCrunch’s program to match entrepreneurs with investors during Disrupt.

Here’s how startups can apply:

Rules: Any early stage company in the VR/AR or AI space may apply.
