AR/VR Auckland Showcase

Come along to our showcase of local augmented & virtual reality companies and see their capabilities and experience them for yourself

What's it all about?

It's difficult to understand the impact of virtual reality, and the business applications of augmented reality until you see and experience them for yourself.

The AR/VR Garage is a collective of companies working with AR/VR Technology - including augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, 360 video, hardware development and more. Their projects also contain work that covers many sectors from Heavy Industry, Education, Tourism and Health and Safety.

Our showcase event gives you the chance to come in and see what our range of capabilities are, and how our developers can help your business - whether it is to make a process easier, or incorporate training programmes, or to engage with consumers better.

Each company will present their work throughout the day so please drop in when it suits you. There will also be live demo sessions so you can experience AR/VR technology for yourself.

More about the ARVR Garage:
