We are here to advance the augmented reality industry in Vancouver by connecting and empowering its community.
AWE Nite Vancouver is a place for developers, creators, investors, founders, corporate decision makers and curious folk to come together to celebrate the activity and devote conviction around building an augmented reality (AR) hub in Vancouver.

AWE produces conferences dedicated to XR (AR/VR/MR) in the USA, Europe, Asia and Tel Aviv and hosts AWE Nite meetup (https://www.meetup.com/pro/awe/)events in Toronto, Vancouver, San Francisco, Chicago, Phoenix, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Berlin and New York.
AWE Nite Vancouver is back for 2019.
This time around, we’re cooking up a smorgasbord of discussion, debate and demoes - centred around THE MOBILE AR REVOLUTION.
Mobile AR is set to take the world by storm - install base surpassed 1 billion devices last year and is on track to hit 3.5 billion by 2022. Our phone cameras are getting smarter at recognizing and mapping our surroundings. This capability is giving rise to new, incredible ways we are interacting with the world around us, each other and our devices.
Grace us with your presence and discover more about how mobile AR is turning our physical world into a new computer interface, and who’s on the forefront of this technology right here in Van City. Those in the know as well as those simply curious to learn more are encouraged to join - diversity of thought is essential to our discussion.
As ever, these bi-monthly events aim to support and nurture the growing Augmented Reality industry in Vancouver - an evening in which we gather inquisitive minds, great ideas and productive conversations.
A detailed agenda will be published in the coming weeks, but expect:
- An awesome keynote speech by one of our guest companies
- To get stuck in with an ‘unconference’ session - This is a discussion format that’s somewhere between a panel and a roundtable. Ultimately it invites every one of you into the conversation to drive its direction. This is your chance to not only hear from experts of the domain but also share your own opinions, experiences and crippling fears when it comes to mobile AR.
- Exclusive AR demos you can get your hands on - provided by Vancouver’s most innovative AR companies
- To chow down on pizza, beer and pop (which is included in the price of your ticket)
We are looking for individuals who are interested in demo'ing their product or feature. If you are interested, please submit your application here: https://goo.gl/forms/7CCgjjxzu6igBWL12
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
