This year, the MAVRIC conference will be coordinated with the Virtual Worlds Forum meetings (XR in the Intelligence Community) and the Chesapeake DHX (Digital Health Exchange) to bring together the major players in Healthcare, Eldercare, Business, Art, Intelligence, Defense, and Government. Speakers and attendees will share and explore the ways in which emerging technologies like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are and will change the way that training, operations, research, education, and planning are done.

Providing access to the funders, creators, and users of XR technologies and a stellar line-up of presentations, workshops, and connection opportunities, the 3rd annual MAVRIC conference will allow for all participants to connect, learn, and discover new ideas around the use of these technologies in their own fields.

For a taste, last year's conference (generously supported by Booz Allen Hamilton) is available to view on our YouTube Channel.

Special Thanks to unity and KairosXR for their Sponsorship!
