AR/VR/MR Focus


AR/VR/MR Focus magazine is the official magazine for the SPIE AR|VR|MR conference and exhibition taking place in San Francisco, 29 – 31 January 2024.

You can find out more about the SPIE AR|VR|MR show here.

AR/VR/MR magazine is the new publication from the team that brings you optics.org, VISION Focus magazine and the Photonics West show daily.

With a focus on the optical technologies that enable advances in AR/VR/MR applications, AR/VR/MR Focus is leading the way with exclusive business news, market trends and product applications. Published by SPIE (the international society for optics and photonics) and the official media partner for the AR|VR|MR conference we’ll put your company in front of some of the leading players in this rapidly expanding industry. (Amazon, Facebook, Google to name but a few.)

From automotive to medical applications the potential for the AR/VR/MR applications is enormous and we’ll make sure that you’re hitting the right people at exactly the right time.

Contact the team to include your latest PR or product announcement in advance of this key XR and application driven event. AR/VR/MR Focus will also be actively promoted via optics.org, the optics.org weekly eNewsletter (sent to over 20,000 opt-in subscribers), promoted via social media groups (LinkedIn and twitter).
