Augmented Reality is promising a future where our experiences with digital information aren’t bounded by a box. This new mass medium will completely change the way people live, work and play as our physical reality blends with a virtual one.

To enable these immersive, natural and intuitive experiences, we need “The AR Cloud”, a machine-readable, 1:1 scale model of the world. Experts believe “The AR Cloud” will be the single most important software infrastructure in the history of computing, far bigger than Google’s search index and Facebook’s social graph.

What is the AR Cloud and why is it so important? How will location-based AR experiences change in the next few years after Pokemon Go’s big debut in 2016? Does this year mark the beginning of the spatial era?

Join us on June 19th and learn from the industry’s brightest minds, connect with other like-minded VR/AR professionals and experience never-seen-before mixed reality demo’s as we unveil the potential of Augmented Reality. This event will feature a keynote by Marco DeMiroz, the co-founder and General Partner of the Venture Reality Fund and collaborator of the formation of the Women in XR (WXR) Fund.

We are excited to feature a talk by Alex Chuang of Shape Immersive on “Building the AR Cloud”

Our first panel will be a discussion on location-based AR and its gain in popularity and its future trends. Speakers from , QuestUpon and others will join us on stage.

Our final panel will feature an interesting dialogue on AR Cloud. Speakers from Shape Immersive, Atheer and Steampunk Digital, almond with other will discuss all its applications.

The full list of speakers and demos will be announced this week!

Food and drinks will be provided!
