Content is the foundation of the XR industry. Without engaging content for users to experience, enjoy and learn from, AR/VR hardware and technology would likely serve little purpose. This is why those making the content are key!
AWE offers a fantastic community and series of global events where artists and creators can gather to get inspired. Whether it is at one of AWE’s in-person conferences, or online through the awe.live portal, there is plenty of opportunity for creators to learn how to create incredible AR/VR experiences and discover a new virtual or augmented reality career. Get first-hand advice on how to best use the latest platforms and SDKs from the likes of Adobe, Epic Games, Google, Meta, Microsoft, Snap, Unity and more
When it comes to in-person events, AWE has something to offer everyone, from beginners, to those who are experienced in AR/VR content creation.
