The Augmented World Expo (AWE) will take place this year at the Santa Clara Convention Centre in Silicon Valley from May 31 – June 2.  Whether you’re able to attend or not, readers will be interested in an opinion piece by Charlie Fink in Forbes, about this event which is the longest running conference and expo dedicated to Augmented and Virtual Reality.  Last week’s announcement of the agenda has produced the comment: ‘its most comprehensive agenda ever for AR and VR.’

Industry experts who are scheduled to speak on the AWE stage include:

  • Jim Heppelmann, (President of CEO PTC)

“They are looking for business solutions, clues about the impact of these new technologies on the consumer side, and the tools emerging to support an ecosystem of hardware and software developers that is developing too rapidly to keep track of without an event like AWE. AWE has become the place where Fortune 500 companies find business solutions, strategic partnerships are forged, funds raised, talent hired, and new start-ups are born” Said Ori Inbar, founder of AWE.

AWE features keynotes and discussion panels on the future of AR and VR consumer and enterprise technology led by industry futurists and pioneers, hardware, software and mainstream brands, and investors and venture capitalists. AWE 2017 sessions cover a wide range of topics including manufacturing, training, transportation, retail, healthcare, aerospace, media, entertainment, marketing and advertising and more.
