Augmented Reality Event (ARE), announced today the 3rd annual event of the world’s largest conference dedicated to the augmented reality industry, will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, on May 8-9, 2012.

Start-ups, developers, mobile and hardware companies along with organizations within entertainment, media, education, healthcare, government, tourism, and many more, will gather to evolve this hot technology into a productive, sustainable and entertaining new medium. ARE will include more than 30 sessions organized into business, technology and production tracks, designed to address topics such as:

• the augmented reality market today and in the future,
• latest augmented reality innovations, engines and tools,
• showcases and postmortems of landmark augmented reality projects
• how to fund and build a successful augmented reality start up,
• how to leverage augmented reality to advance your brand, attract and keep your customers, and
• how to build successful campaigns and products that will delight users.

Industry luminaries will deliver inspiring Augmented Reality keynotes; the exhibition floor will showcase the leading Augmented Reality companies and products and will offer a fantastic opportunity for networking to help boost the fledgling industry. Last year’s successful activities such as the ARt Gala, AR Start up launch pad, and The Auggies (best AR demo award) will return to delight event participants.

This year, we are introducing a new session: Augmented Future – 5 ground breaking augmented reality ideas that will change the world (ignite style.)

ARE is currently accepting submissions for speakers, demos, roundtables, and sponsors and exhibitors.

“Augmented Reality has already transitioned from a gimmick to a major new tech sector,” said Ori Inbar, event co-chair of ARE. “Backed by the leading augmented reality companies and passionate industry leaders, ARE will be a “don’t-miss” event with valuable content focused on the latest innovations, business models and how to successfully bring augmented reality to the market.”

The event is backed by leading global Augmented Reality companies and the ISMAR committee, and is sponsored by top tech companies.
