It's that time again, time for all the virtual reality lovers of the world to band together at Oculus Connect. This year the convention is set to take place at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in California, and it will take place over the course of a couple of days. To help you navigate the plethora of keynotes and presentations, we've put together this handy guide to Oculus Connect 6. Below you'll find a breakdown of keynotes, the start and end dates, as well as where you can watch all of the presentations via live stream from your home. We'll also include links to any announcements and trailers that are released during the convention. 

Oculus Connect 6 dates, times, and registration info

Oculus Connect 6 is set to kick off with its first keynote at 10 AM PT on September 25. The event will continue through the day and into September 26, when it will come to an end at 6 PM PT. We'll have people onsite for many of the keynotes and demos, so make sure you stay tuned to this page for updates from as we learn more about the current state of virtual reality during this year's show.

Oculus Connect 6 Day 1 schedule
Here's the broad schedule for Oculus Connect 6 Day One.

Those planning on attending the show will need to show up between 8 AM PT for registration and breakfast. Registration at the event is currently set to run both September 25 and 26 from 8-10 AM PT. Unfortunately, the pre-registration for the event is already closed, so if you didn't apply before it closed, you'll need to enjoy the festivities from the comfort of your home or office. 

Oculus Connect 6 live streams

Unlike most major gaming conventions, Oculus Connect 6 won't feature a ton of different, smaller streams sharing the content. Instead, users will need to sign up to watch the keynotes over on the Oculus Connect website. The main keynote kicks off at 10 AM PT on Wednesday, September 25, and a second keynote will take place on Thursday, September 26 at the same time. 

Aside from signing up on the Oculus website, users will also be able to view the keynote event from Facebook, where they have pinned the following post:

If you'd like, you can also just tune into the live stream from the embedded post above. That's entirely up to you. 

Alternatively, Oculus will usually upload the Connect keynotes to YouTube after the fact, so we'll be sure to provide any additional links to those videos once they are live on the site. If you can't tune in to the event as it is happening, then this is a good way to catch up on things.

Finally, you can tune into the show via the Oculus Venues application on the Oculus Quest or Oculus Go. To watch the keynote on Venues, simply download the application to your device and then subscribe to the live stream of the keynote to view it.
