Washington, D.C. — Today, the XR Association (XRA), the trade association representing the growing ecosystem of companies powering virtual, augmented, and mixed reality (XR) announced several new members.
With more than 40 companies representing the historic growth and advancements of the XR industry, XRA has sought to demonstrate the limitless potential of immersive technologies in sectors including workforce development, training, healthcare, and education. The Association has served a valuable role in ensuring the responsible development and thoughtful advancement of emerging XR technologies.
The news comes following XRA’s announcement that it will host the first annual “National XR Month” in November to drive awareness about the limitless potential of immersive technology, its responsible development and use. XRA expressed support for H.Res. 1399, a congressional resolution offered by co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality Technologies (Reality Caucus) to officially recognize November as National XR Month.
XRA members engage across the association’s three pillars: Community, Leadership and Advocacy. They have the opportunity to network and collaborate with colleagues, build relationships with new audiences, and are provided a forum to discuss the future of the industry – particularly public policy priorities and legislative implications.
The full list of new members include:
Many of the companies will participate in XRA’s Limitless Future Conference > XR for Learning & Development on Tuesday, Nov. 1 in Atlanta. The conference showcases immersive technology’s impact on training, learning, and talent management.
