About

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.

AWE_'14_Banner_Call for Proposals

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 is poised to double in size once again.

Augmented Reality.ORG, the producer of AWE is proud to announce the maturing of an edgy conference about augmented reality into the world’s first expo about the augmented world.  If you are interested in the space you are going to find Augmented World Expo the most important event of 2014.

AWE 2014 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 will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, on May 27-29, 2014.

With the proven track record and the tremendous momentum in the Augmented Reality industry and interrelated technologies, AWE 2014 will set a new record and expected to draw 2000 attendees that seek to leverage augmented reality into a productive, sustainable and entertaining new medium. AWE 2014 will spotlight inspiring keynotes by industry luminaries, and feature more than a 100 speakers from leading Augmented World companies in more than 30 hours. Organized into business, technology, design, and culture tracks, the conference program is designed to address topics such as:

  • current augmented world market scope and what’s expected in the next 5 years
  • latest augmented world innovations, engines and tools
  • showcases and postmortems of landmark augmented world projects
  • how to leverage AW to advance your brand, attract and keep your customers
  • how to build successful campaigns and products that will delight users
  • the impact of the augmented world on law and culture

The exhibition floor will unite 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. Last year’s successful activities such as the ARt Gala, Start up launch pad, and The Auggies Award Ceremony will return to delight attendees.

“Augmented Reality has transitioned from its gimmicky stage to the productivity stage,” said Ori Inbar, CEO of AugmentedReality.ORG, the producer of AWE. “Backed by leading augmented world companies and passionate industry leaders, AWE will be a “don’t-miss” event with valuable content focused on the latest innovations, business models and how to successfully bring augmented world solutions to the market.”

    Hi!

    I’m Natt Garun, a reporter at Digital Trends. We were wondering if the expo has a separate credential for media passes? We would love the cover the event if possible – AR is a huge trend in consumer tech and electronics. Please let us know, thanks!
