With an incredibly impressive track record under his belt, Ori is a recognized speaker in the AR industry, lecturer at NYU, as well as a sought after adviser & board member for AR startups. He's been an enterprising champion of the AR industry since 2007 when he established Games Alfresco - a leading augmented reality blog that helped popularize AR. Additionally, back in 2009, he was the co-founder & CEO of Ogmento, one of the first venture-backed companies conceived from the ground up to develop & publish augmented reality games - games like Pokemon Go.
Most notably, Ori is also the co-founder & CEO of Augmented World Expo AWE XR (formerly ARE) - a global community dedicated to advancing AR & virtual reality (VR). Since 2010, over 5,000 companies & 50,000 professionals have trusted AWE to connect, learn & grow their business in the XR ecosystem - via conferences, meetups, classes, award competitions, industry news & thousands of free videos about everything XR. Now in its 8th year, the conference has grown to be the world's largest and most influential conference for AR.
