Description

Purpose:
VRAR Chicago is about connecting people with technology. Each month we present a mixed panel of experts who are currently working directly with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Technology, including Technologists, Business Analysts, Visionaries, Content Creators, Investors, and more. We make the panel available to anyone who wants to attend, with a particular focus on business and community leaders and investors in Chicago who are interested in learning how to make practical use of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technology. The group at each meetup directs the discussion, and it begins and ends with networking and hands-on technology demonstrations so that everyone can gain practical experience with the technologies.


Format:

Benefits of Attending:
