There’s only one demo location in Australia, and it’s located at the Pitt Street Maill in Sydney. This place can get pretty crowded, however, so plan accordingly.

United Kingdom

HTC has five demo locations in the United Kingdom. Three are at Curry’s PC World stores, one is at an Overclocker’s U.K. location, and one is at Scan Computers. These are all listed on the Google Map above.


Swedish electronics retailer Inet has also started offering scheduled demos of the HTC Vive at six different locations in Sweden, including Stockholm and Malmö. You can book a demo via the the Vive product page on the company’s website.

Trade shows

Big events like CES are very important for emerging technologies like virtual reality. With a big trade show gear toward electronics, you’re almost guaranteed to see the Vive and the other big players floating around. You’ll have to arrange your own admittance, however, and potentially wait to try out the demos.

Other events

Still having trouble finding a nearby demo? Well, some VR enthusiasts have taken matters into their own hands, using Meetup to stage informal gatherings to demo and discuss the latest games and experiences available for headsets like the Vive. Just search your location for “virtual reality” to find a meetup near you.
