ARuVR, a pioneer in virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) immersive training solutions, recently announced it would host its annual Learning and Development Summit in London.

Hosted in the iconic City, University of London, the event will rally the learning and development sector on Tuesday, 13 June. Visitors can join the Summit from 17:30 to 21:00 to learn about noteworthy use cases and stories on upskilling global workforces with AR and VR technologies.

Summit attendees include members from major companies and organisations such as British Telecom (BT), The Royal Air Force, and S&P Global. Mintra, Five Guys, and the AA, among others, will also join to share their extensive knowledge of leveraging immersive training tools.

The event will also feature several hands-on ARuVR demos across transport, manufacturing, education, healthcare, construction, retail, finance, and energy. Experts will also stand by to answer any enquiries about product demos.

Tom McDowall, Chairman of The Learning Network, said his firm was “excited” to work with ARuVR to host the Learning & Development Summit.

He continued,

“If you’re a learning professional curious about incorporating AR, VR, and even hologram training solutions into your workflow, this is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it!”

Frank Furnari, Chief Executive and Founder, ARuVR, added,

“This is a great opportunity for L&D leaders to come together, informally, to gain insight from customers who are changing the way their organisations train and upskill the workforce”

The top-tier immersive firm has trained workforces across Coca-Cola, BT, BAE Systems, Barilla, and Saudi Arabia’s NEOM. ARuVR has continued the trend of innovating learning and development across multiple industry verticals. This has shown the massive potential for return on investment (ROI) for the global industry.

No-Code Tools, All-Around Winners

The announcement comes shortly after ARuVR revealed it had introduced no-code tools for industry-leading headsets. Models featured for the upgrade include the Meta Quest Pro, VIVE XR Elite, and Pico 4 Enterprise.

Additionally, the novel solution will lower barriers to entry for enterprises upskilling their employees with standalone headsets. The latter will provide companies with unrivalled mobility in deploying their training solutions, allowing their workforce to train anywhere at any time.

The London-based firm previously hosted its Learning Technologies conference from 3 to 4 May. ARuVR debuted several hologram and metaverse technology solutions for attendees during the event.

ARuVR Learning and Development Awards, Accolades

Along with its trove of updates, ARuVR reached substantial milestones last year. The immersive technology company secured 15 intellectual properties and patents for its VR/AR solutions for up to 20 years.

Further accomplishments include receiving a multimillion-pound investment from strategic capital firms and upgrading to a new office at 99 Bishopgate. The firm achieved supplier status for the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) — the first AR/VR enterprise to reach such security standards.

Finally, the company continues to score prestigious awards across the industry, including the Learning Technologies Awards 2022. There, it earned a Gold Award for Best Digital Learning Transformation Programme.

It also received accolades for its work with the University College of London for its training solution. The company’s previous efforts have led it to earn a Health Education Using Tech of the Year award.
