The conference will open with the keynote where Mark Zuckerberg and other leading tech executives will speak and introduce new features and products on everything AR/VR.

Facebook renamed the event to Facebook Connect from Oculus Connect because the format had evolved and it now encompasses “much more than just Oculus”. Specifically, it now includes Facebook’s AR platform Spark AR and Live Maps as well as its would be video chat device portal.

Recent events, including the discontinuation of Oculus Quest headset sales globally suggest that Facebook might unveil its new Oculus Quest 2 during the event. The reasons for Facebook’s apparent stoppage of Quest sales this week might be known during the Facebook Connect event.

We are expecting to hear news about Facebook’s virtual reality creative platform Facebook Horizon. Facebook Reality Labs Research might also be looking to reimagine the future with new high-end prototypes similar to the Half-Dome.

The Facebook Connect keynote will be streamed live via Facebook but the developer presentations will appear on YouTube.

It is now possible to access the scheduled lectures and other programs on the official Facebook Connect website. These will be as follows: –
