AWE Nite Meetups

Join us at an upcoming AWE Nite meetup in one of the following cities

AWE hosts local meetup chapters called AWE Nites across North America. The goal of AWE Nites are to advance the augmented reality industry in each city by connecting and empowering its community.


AWE Nites are a place for developers, creators, investors, founders, academics, corporate decision makers and curious folk to come together to celebrate the activity and devote conviction around building an augmented reality (AR) hub in the city. AWE currently hosts AWE Nite meetup chapters in San Francisco, Chicago, New York and Toronto. 


AWE Nites are part of AWE, the world’s #1 XR event series, which has a reach of over 250,000 professionals all dedicated to the adoption and growth of augmented reality and virtual reality as the next wave of computing.


AWE also produces conferences dedicated to XR (AR/VR/MR) in the USA, Europe, Asia and Tel Aviv.
