Your projects will be more successful and the learning curve lower with the support of experienced AR professionals.

We have a very full Agenda available for this workshop, scroll down to download the latest!

The AR for Enterprise Alliance (AREA) is the only global, membership-funded, non-profit alliance dedicated to accelerating the adoption of enterprise Augmented Reality (AR) by supporting the growth of a comprehensive ecosystem. This year, we’ve joined forces with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) to host our annual AREA Workshop dedicated to AR for Enterprise. Use this link to register for the 26 – 27 March workshop to be conducted in the AMRC’s state of the art, Factory 2050 facility in Sheffield, UK.

Along with keynote speakers from organisations who have implemented ARinteractive workshop sessionsnetworking and demos, you can mix and mingle with like-minded colleagues, develop new connections and get the low-down on what other organisations are doing in this exciting space.

In addition and to support this workshop, we’ll be hosting an online Webinar to help set the scene for attendees and give them a backdrop to the workshop sessions and a more in-depth look at AR for Enterprise. You can learn more about how the workshop can benefit you and your organisation. Attendance on this webinar is free.

We’re also very pleased to welcome our Gold sponsors on board:

We look forward to seeing you at AMRC Factory 2050! If you have any queries, please reach out to me directly or get in touch with Angela at


We’ll kick off by looking at some of the basics of Augmented Reality (AR); where it can be used in business, how it can improve business by saving money or increasing revenues and looking more closely at the different AR technologies out there.

Workshop sessions over the 2 days will also allow participants to have the opportunity to discuss the benefits of AR and how to deploy and overcome the barriers to adoption.

Please take a look at the high level Agenda attached.
