Digital realities (VR/AR/MR) are no longer just buzz words, they have become reality. Our event aims to explore digital reality applications that enable airlines and aviation partners to improve operational efficiency, enhance customer experience and generate new revenue opportunities for the industry.
Last year's AVARS brought together 140 delegates from airlines, aviation partners, academia, technology providers and hardware manufacturers to discuss the latest trends, debate use cases and address the challenges to adoption of this technology in aviation.
Our aim for 2019 is to bring together like-minded individuals who are changing the way air transport operates and scale up Proofs-of-Concept (PoC) to implementation.
Learn from digital reality experts and fellow aviation geeks to develop a robust digital reality strategy for your organization!
