About AWE

Augmented World Expo™ (AWE) is the world’s largest conference and expo for professionals focused on making the world more interactive – featuring technologies such as Augmented Reality, Wearable Computing, Smart Glasses, Gesture and Sensors devices, and The Internet of Things. It is produced by the non-profit organization AugmentedReality.Org.

Now in its 6th year, AWE is again assembling the 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 2014 was the largest ever exposition of Augmented Reality and Wearable Technology with over 200 demos, 150 speakers, and nearly 2000 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 (“The organization was flawless. We were excited and proud to be part of it!”), and attendees couldn’t stop raving about it (“a highlight of my year” – Court Westcott, Investor).

AWE 2015 is poised to set a new record and draw over 3000 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.
