In less than two weeks, Float will be attending the 2019 Realities360 conference in sunny San Jose, California. From June 25-27, there will be over 50 sessions showcasing how organizations are utilizing XR (extended reality) technologies– including Float. We are excited to be exhibiting and speaking at several sessions.
Realities360 is a conference focused on unleashing the potential that augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) has for training and education. Earlier this year, in our Looking Forward: 2019 Trends for eLearning, we mentioned the increased usage of Virtual and Augmented Reality, and that is heavily emphasized at this conference. Here is our list of the top 5 things we are looking forward to at Realities360:
Keynotes from Industry-Leaders
The eLearning Guild always finds superior speakers for their conferences, and this year, at Realties360, they’re spoiling us. This year’s keynotes include speakers from Nielson, The New York Times, NextTech AR Solutions, and more! Float is excited to announce that our Managing Partner, Chad Udell, will be on a keynote panel during the conference as well.
In their panel VR for Enterprise: Is Your Company Ready, Float’s Managing Partner, Chad Udell, CEO of Quantum Improvements Consulting, Jennifer Murphy, and GM for Adept Reality, Hugh Seaton, will be discussing how to deploy XR solutions from a vision into action effectively. The session will be held on Wednesday, June 26, from 4-5 PM in the Imperial Room.

Exciting AR and VR Sessions
Keeping up with the XR theme of the conference, Float is looking forward to contributing through some of our own. Over the last year, we’ve been working hard in building our AR projects, which we’ll be sharing in our Realities360 sessions.
In their session, The Business Case for AI-backed AR and Lessons Learned in Building It, Float’s AR and Mobile Developer, Steve Richey and Maui Jim’s CIO, Jim Ferolo, will share how beneficial AR and AI can be for performance support. They will divulge into the technology that Float and Maui Jim have created together and how it is improving their organization’s performance. Join us on Tuesday, June 25, from 10:45-11:45 AM to hear this exciting industry news. This is a session you won’t want to miss!
Another session, we think you will like is presented by Chad Udell on Tuesday, June 25, at 12:45 PM, titled “Real World Case Studies in AR and Machine Learning.” This session will share the challenges and successes of these learning-powered AR products as well as tips to smooth out the transition into this journey.

Kick off your conference mornings with the “Early Bird” discussions with a cup of coffee in a very casual environment. This is your chance to mingle with other attendees and share your best practices, tips, insights, and learn from others. These will take place from 7:30-8:15 AM.
Chat with representatives from companies such as Elara Systems, Float, Ally Insurance, Roundtable Learning, The eLearning Guild, Adept Reality, Learning Dojo, GP Strategies, and more!
Have a cup of coffee and spend your Tuesday, morning with Chad while discussing AI and Machine Learning-Driven Augmented Reality. This will be a fun morning to sit and chat with an expert in the industry.
Here are some of the other morning buzz sessions.
Hands-on Learning Experiences/ Pre-Conference Workshops
On Monday, June 24, you have the option to attend several BYOB (Bring Your Own Device) sessions to learn some practical AR/VR solutions. With your laptop or phone in hand, you’ll download the software being discussed and have the unique opportunity to apply technological skills with an instructor there to direct you step-by-step.
Here is the current lineup:

The Expo’s Learning Stage
Although we’re just as excited as you to see the expo hall and the variety of companies who will be demonstrating what their specialties are, we are also excited for the presentations that will be given on the stages too.
Float’s AR and Mobile Developer, Steve Richey, will be presenting a Buyers Guide: What Problem is Your Organization Looking to Solve on Wednesday, June 26, at 10:10 AM. He will discuss the answers to significant questions your organization may have about implementing AR and VR strategies.
