An Evening with Niantic (SF)

Register here. VRARA members get in free.


Niantic is a product and revenue leader in AR. And it's not stopping there. With recent technology acquisitions, continued success of Pokemon Go, and the upcoming launch of Harry Potter, Wizards Unite, there's a lot going on.

The company is also in the process of an ambitious AR platform play. The Real World Platform will carry Niantic's valuable learnings, AR interactions, game mechanics and scaling capability. It will package up these assets in a platform that developers can use to build their own geo-spatial AR apps and experiences.

How will Niantic continue to build a business that defines mobile AR? Where is it headed next? How is it fulfilling its mission-driven goals to get more people outside? And what's its vision for our AR future? We'll dive into these and other questions with AR lead Ross Finman in a fireside chat. 

Our research partner ARtillery Intelligence will kick things off with a presentation to set the stage with the data, insights and trends it's tracking. Altogether it will be a valuable evening of knowledge & networking.
