Register for An Evening with Niantic here (early-bird tickets are limited).

Niantic is a product and revenue leader in AR. And it’s not stopping there. With recent technology acquisitions like Escher Reality and Matrix Mill, continued success of Pokemon Go, and the upcoming launch of Harry Potter, Wizards Unite, there’s a lot going on at Niantic.

The company is also in the process of an ambitious AR platform play. The Real World Platform will carry Niantic’s learnings, AR interactions, game mechanics and scaling capability. It will package up these assets for developers to build their own geo-spatial AR apps and experiences.

How will Niantic continue to build a business that defines mobile AR? Where is it headed next? How is it fulfilling its mission-driven goals to get more people outside? And what’s its vision for our AR future? We’ll dive into these questions on May 8th with Niantic AR lead Ross Finman.

AR Insider’s research arm, ARtillery Intelligence, will kick things off with a presentation to set the stage with the data, insights and trends it’s tracking. Altogether it will be a valuable evening of knowledge & networking. Quick details are below and you can find out more or register here.
