What We Do

VRAR Chicago creates, coordinates, manages and advertises events of all sizes, across all industries, to drive home the point that immersive technology is going to change the world, and Chicago is going to be at the center of that transformation. Virtual and Augmented Reality are #TheNextEvolution of human communication, the collaboration of data and environment, interaction and information, physical and digital.

Business is going to drive this transformation so we offer help, through our event services, to organizations and individuals that are either in the VR & AR space or looking to work with these technologies. Our events and event marketing provide publicity, advertising, social engagement, business development opportunities, lead generation, sales and recruiting opportunities.

Why Chicago?

Chicago is at the center of several industries that are already driving the growth of immersive technology adoption – advertising, architecture, construction, education, healthcare and training. It 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. Finally, Chicago 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.

VR/AR Chicago AR/VR in Motion

The adoption of immersive technology, particularly in response to the pandemic, is rapidly changing how people work and play. VRAR Chicago’s event series, #TheNextEvolution in VR & AR, is over three years old and successfully transitioned to a 100% virtual format at the end of March. Every month we feature a different industry and highlight current and potential implementations of XR solutions within that industry. We gather an expert panel and focus the discussion on the needs of our audience, to help them take their next step forward with immersive technology.

We look for innovative organizations to partner with to continue our growth and to allow us to provide this programming at no cost to our audience, as we always have. In the past we have been supported in our efforts by leading corporations, industry associations, fellow entrepreneurs, business accelerators and technology incubators.
