Welcome to the Augmented World!
Augmented World Expo (AWE), is the world’s largest gathering of designers, engineers and business leaders dedicated to making the world more interactive.
The way we experience the world will never be the same. We no longer interact with computers. We interact with the world. A set of emerging interrelated technologies such as augmented reality, gesture interaction, digital eyewear, wearables, Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data, and 3D printing are completely changing the way we interact with people, places and things. These technologies create a digital layer that empowers humans to experience the world in a more advanced, engaging, and productive way.
Augmented World Expo showcases the best in augmented experiences covering all aspects of life: health, education, emergency response, art, media and entertainment, retail, manufacturing, brand engagement, travel, automotive, and urban design. It will be the largest ever exposition to bring together technologies that will change our lives and the world.
AWE 2013 set a new record with over 1100 attendees. And with the incredible energy in the industry, AWE 2014 shuttered that record and nearly doubled in size once again.
Augmented Reality.ORG, the producer of AWE is proud to announce the maturing of an edgy conference about augmented reality, wearables and the Internet of Things – into the world’s first expo about the interactive world. If you are interested in the space you are going to find Augmented World Expo the highlight of your year.
AWE invites today’s technology leaders to learn, network, and share their expertise in technologies that change the way we interact with the world. Presentations should cover a range of emerging technologies such as augmented reality, gesture interaction, digital eyewear, wearables, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data, and 3D printing. Presenters can choose from a set of topics and industries that address the latest trends, strategies and business growth opportunities of the augmented world.
AWE 2014 was held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, on May 27-29, 2014.
AWE 2014 spotlighted inspiring keynotes by industry luminaries, and feature more than a 150 speakers from leading Augmented World companies in more than 40 hours. Organized into business, technology, design, and culture tracks, the conference program is designed to address topics such as:

The exhibition floor unites all the leading providers of Augmented World services and products, and offer a fantastic opportunity to witness demonstrations, speak with the architects of these experiences and network all participants in this exciting industry. Successful activities such as the ARt Gala, Start up launch pad, The Auggies Award Ceremony, Wearable Fashionshow, Wearable Hackathon, City Visions Mural Challenge, continue to delight attendees.
