About 24 to Watch in 2024:

We've held off for many years on putting together any kind of recognition event, as we wanted to make sure we did something meaningful and it didn't end up being a popularity contest.

The point of this recognition initiative is to recognize anyone working within the virtual reality and healthcare industry that is making a significant contribution, is developing something very unique or has done something out of the ordinary that deserves recognition.

This could be the CEO of a startup, or it could be a researcher within a university. It could be a sales person that has made all the difference in your organization, or a human resources person that has found you top notch talent that has made all the difference.

It could be an engineer or designer that has had significance impact on your product. The point is to think out of the box here, and perhaps nominate someone who is not necessarily in the limelight every day.

If you have more questions about this initiative, please refer to the FAQ farther below.
