The AREA Augmented Reality Portal

The Augmented Reality for Enterprise Alliance (AREA) is the only global non-profit, member-based organization dedicated to widespread adoption of interoperable AR-enabled enterprise systems.

The Augmented Reality for Enterprise Alliance (AREA) was incorporated in the state of Delaware in December 2013 as a member-driven non-profit organization committed to the global advancement of Augmented Reality technology in enterprise. It emerged out of collaboration between thought leaders and early adopters of AR who share a stake in the successful expansion of a vibrant and healthy AR ecosystem to realize new revenues, cut operational costs, reduce risk to workflow, property and lives, and increase operational successes.
