ARtillry has partnered with Augmented Word Expo (AWE). That means lots of things, including discounts for ARtillry readers (contact us for a 10% off code). But more importantly, we’d like to commend AWE for its celebration of women in XR.

This is not only reflected throughout the conference program, but in a new “Women of AR+VR” blog series that showcases pioneers, community builders, founders and leaders contributing to computing’s next wave. The first post highlights eight influencers who have paved the way.

Meanwhile, the speaker list is a who’s-who of thought leaders across the XR spectrum. Speakers we’re looking forward to seeing include Emily Olman, Amy LaMeyer, Cassie Li, Joanna Popper, Suzanne Leibrick, and Marley Rafson. There will be lots of knowledge to gain.

Now in its ninth year, AWE is the biggest and best XR industry conference. We say that not just as conference partners, but past attendees and big fans. We’re looking forward to sessions that dive deep into the AR Cloud and enterprise AR, including tactical info, data and best practices.
