The Augmented World Expo (AWE) is upon us, and that means it's time to get excited about all the awesome next reality things to come.
AWE is the world's largest AR and VR conference, and this year the event is dedicated to "Superpowers to Change the World." Pretty cool to think about, isn't it? Who knows what is going to come out of the conference's 8th year, but there definitely will be a few speakers and AR devices that are set to do just that.
That's why we here at Next Reality are giving away five free individual passes to the event. If you ever dreamed of trying out a HoloLens or find out the latest on any number of other AR/MR hardware options, then now might just be your chance.
Ori Inbar, CEO and Founder of AugmentedReality.org, the producing organization of AWE, emphasized to Next Reality how important the event is to the AR industry's growth:
Many AR entrepreneurs expressed the day to day frustration of the lack of awareness to AR's benefits and the constant uphill battle to educate partners and clients. AWE [is] a place to get together from all over the world and feel the amazing energy of this industry; Entrepreneurs got the conviction they are not alone and got inspired to go back home and keep pushing the vision and unmatched potential of this tech.
AWE will even feature some of our Next Reality 50 People to Watch in AR and MR. Speakers such as Tony Parisi, Global Head of VR/AR at Unity, and Remi El-Ouazzane, VP of Intel's New Technology Group, will be there as well as Eric Mizufuka, Product Manager at Epson America, and Parham Aarabi, the CEO of Modiface, will be speaking at the event.
