Augmented World Expo™ (AWE) is the world’s largest conference and expo for professionals focused on giving people real superpowers through Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology. This year's event takes place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California on June 1-2, 2016. It is produced by the non-profit organization AugmentedReality.Org.
Now in its 7th year, AWE is gathering top innovators – from the hottest startups to Fortune 500 – to showcase the best augmented world experiences in all aspects of life and work: from entertainment and brand engagement, to enterprise and industrial, urban and architecture, education and training, automotive and navigation, government, and commerce.
AWE 2015 was the largest ever exposition of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality with over 100 demos, 200 speakers, and nearly 3,000 attendees! The press dubbed it “The Consumer Electronics Show of the Future. The increasingly Near Future” (USA Today). Exhibitors took advantage of the passionate and knowledgeable audience to establish leadership positions in the market.
AWE 2016 is poised to set a new record and draw over 4,000 attendees from all over the world: a mix of CEOs, CTOs, designers, developers, creative agencies, futurists, analysts, investors, and top press – and offer a fantastic opportunity to learn, inspire, partner, and experience first hand the most exciting industry of our times. This year we are also partnering with We Are Wearables, the world's largest wearable tech community, to add a wearable tech track and expo to the event and SVVR, the world's largest VR community, to add a VR track and expo to the event. This means that this year's attendees will have access to over 200 speakers and 200 exhibitors specializing in AR, VR and wearable tech.
