Recent surveys collected by the eLearning Guild show that over 80% of orgainzations are exploring the use of AR and/or VR for training and education. A rapidly growing number of organizations are already actively using or piloting the technologies.

Combine these sentiments with AR/VR industry surveys that show investments targeting enterprise training and education as one of the primary targets of AR/VR providers and it appears that AR/VR training is well-positioned for a breakthrough moment.

This year’s Realities360 Conference and Expo supports this unique moment by bringing together the industry providers that are building training and education platforms, tools, and solutions so that curious professionals can explore how these technologies work, and orgainzations already putting them into use can get the guidance and support needed to build their AR/VR strategies and programs.

If your organization is actively exploring, or implementing AR or VR training and education, you need to be at Realities360 this June. Registration is now open, and many of the sessions you can expect are already online.
