what we do
Here are just a few of the ways that we can help…
VRAR Chicago produces events that are promoting and educating audiences about real world use of immersive (XR) technology featuring experts that are actively producing, promoting, and demonstrating Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and all associated immersive technologies in their businesses and communities.
VRAR Chicago supports individuals and organizations that are working to integrate virtual and immersive technologies into their products and services – providing consulting, business development, technology development, and event production.
VRAR Chicago bridges the gap of knowledge between event production and the digital systems that enable those events to meaningfully engage audiences, both live and virtual. We have the capabilities and resources to integrate and manage any or all necessary components of a live, virtual, or mixed reality event into a single curated experience.
VRAR Chicago is part of the largest and most innovative technology community in the world.
“VRAR Chicago has allowed me to engage with different aspects of the tech, experience emerging hardware, and make connections to the Chicago VRAR community that allow me to bring a richer, fuller experience to my DePaul students.”Bree McEwanASSOCIATE PROFESSOR AND PROGRAM COORDINATOR - DEPAUL UNIVERSITY
“I loved that VRAR Chicago combined us to not look at each other in the eyes as competitors or enemies. On the panel, we were having honest and open conversations about technology in our industry and sharing with those who are in all different stages of their VR/AR experience.”Devon RutkowskiMEDIA DESIGNER AT GILBANE BUILDING COMPANY
“I highly recommend those in Chicago with any interest in VR/AR attend a Chicago chapter event, get to know those who are in the community and find out all the great ways you can use VR/AR to further your business.”Ibrahim JilaniBUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, CONSUMER TECHNOLOGY: UL
what the community thinks
Chicago is at the center of several industries that are already driving the growth of immersive technology adoption.
Chicago is home to many of the best medical, business, and technology research institutions in the world.
Chicago is where 1871, the worlds #1 private business incubator, fosters entrepreneurship, and our city hosts the most profitable venture investment environment in the world.
Business is going to drive the adoption of augmented and virtual reality. Immersive technology is disrupting established industries both from the ground up, and the top down. Combine all of the above with the hardest working, most inclusive and diverse workforce, and the lowest cost of living of any major city in the United States, and it’s clear to see why Chicago is leading the way.
