Our experience at AWE2017

It’s been a week now since we have had the pleasure to participate at the Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara, CA. This event is, with 4700 visitors, over 350 speakers and 200 exhibitors, the largest event in the world in the AR/VR space, and we were proud to be a part of it!

And that can be taken literally. Peggy Gulick from AGCO referred multiple times to the collaboration with Proceedix during her keynote on the Connected Enterprise. On Thursday, our CEO Peter Verstraeten was asked to pitch Proceedix, and Friday he got to close the Work stage for the day with his talk “Time for a new pair of glasses”. Based on the number of pictures taken of his slides, many went home that day with newly acquired knowledge. Last but not least, we also attended the Auggie Award ceremony, as we were a finalist in the category “Best App”.

In between all the craziness of the talks and keynotes, Peter and Charlotte, our delegate based in San Francisco, hosted a booth where we invited Riemer Grootjans, CEO of our new smart eyewear partner Iristick. We even welcomed our first virtual visitor.

AWE, thank you for having us! The fact that so many more people visited the expo than previous editions only indicates the traction augmented and virtual reality applications are finally receiving.
