AR/VR Forum: Driving digital innovation with immersive and wearable technology

HOUSTON - The Industrial AR/VR Forum, saw a conglomeration of leading AR/VR innovators and industry application specialists. Unlike typical AR/VR conferences, where leaders from the AR/VR community present advances in this technology, this forum was unique in focusing on the applications to the local Energy & Engineering Industry of Houston.

The event pivoted on driving digital innovation and revolutionizing industrial energy and engineering business with immersive and wearable technology.

GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium

View On-Demand

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
