The design world is in the midst of a paradigm shift. With Augmented Reality (AR), traditional limitations are dissolving, giving way to a new era of immersive design at scale in true three-dimensional space. In this keynote, you’ll learn how AR is empowering spatial designers to better design and share their visions with colleagues and clients in profound and compelling ways. 
We’ll explore how this technology is integrated into the design process and facilitates enhanced collaboration, real-time prototyping, and immersive large-scale presentations. Our panel will share insights and opportunities from this experience—showcasing transformative approaches to teamwork and client engagement that can be applied across the industry.
Whether you’re an experienced professional or new to the field, this event aims to inform and inspire—exploring the transformative potential for architecture, interior design, and everything in between. Join us to learn about the extraordinary capabilities that AR is unlocking for designers and discover how you can harness these abilities to elevate your own design practice. Demonstrations will be available to attendees immediately after the talk.
