Why Join VRARA Alberta?
Alberta is home to a diverse and rapidly evolving technology ecosystem. Moving away from traditional sources of energy, Calgary and the Province of Alberta look to expand their presence in the technology sector. Albertans are known for our innovate spirit and inspirational sense of community. These are exciting times that will see the Virtual and Augmented Reality grow dramatically over the next 3 years in Alberta.
