Augmented reality (AR) is taking the industrial space by storm, bringing elements of the virtual world to the real world – and allowing enterprises to drive operational efficiency, worker productivity, and overall business transformation.

But, if one thing is true of industrial AR, it is this: It is growing by leaps and bounds. IDC research shows industrial enterprises are investing $8B in AR this year, driving real-world uses cases that will have industry-shaking ramifications in the near future. With this significant increase in AR technology adoption, forward-looking enterprises simply cannot afford to wait.

Fortunately, they don’t have to.

On Thursday, March 14, industry and technology experts will convene at PTC’s renowned headquarters in Boston’s Innovation District to examine the importance of industrial AR today – and to explore the possibilities of AR tomorrow.

This will be the first in a series of industry-focused events held at PTC’s new state-of-the-art office, where technology is interlaced with the physical space and the digital infrastructure of the building.
The event will feature opening remarks from PTC CEO & President Jim Heppelmann, followed by AR talk tracks from PTC, Microsoft, Rockwell Automation, and VRARA.

Philips will be discussing and demoing their use case for HoloLens 2, Microsoft’s next-generation, augmented reality headset recently unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Additional real-time product demos, food, and drinks will be available throughout the evening.

This is an opportunity for tech enthusiasts, developers, engineers, designers, and more to discover what’s next in industrial augmented reality (register here).

We look forward to seeing you there!
