What we're about

VR/AR Chicago brings together people who are interested in working with virtual and augmented reality technology.

The group includes developers, business leaders, investors, students, and more. Many of our members are actively working with VR and AR technology here in Chicago - providing consulting, business development, and technology development services. What makes us different from other groups is that we are not just interested in seeing what's out there, we are actively producing, promoting, and demonstrating VR and AR technology in our businesses and community.

We generally meet on the 1st Wednesday every month. There a few months where we move for holidays or to avoid other known Immersive Technology events, but it always takes place on a Wednesday. Throughout 2019, all of our monthly MeetUps will be held at 1871 in the auditorium. Topics and panel details are schedule to be announced at least 2 weeks prior to each schedule MeetUp.

If you are interested in sponsoring, demonstrating technology, or participating on the expert panel, please email the organizer (vrarchicago@origindev.com). We're also happy to answer any questions.
