What is the difference between a company membership and university membership?

AIXR aims to build the future of XR together. This means working with a wide variety of organisations and individuals to build the largest network of innovators and leaders possible. 

Your university membership will give you access to the same global network of creatives and innovators as a company membership would, while accounting for the unique needs of both staff and students.

Do all of my staff and students receive the benefits?

Absolutely, AIXR membership is a single cost for everyone to enjoy the benefits. 

Students will benefit from a premier education in XR – from workshops to webinars, your students will never be short of opportunities to get involved in the industry. 

Staff will get the opportunity to be recognised amongst a cast of other industry leaders, with a seat on one of our XR advisory panels, an opportunity to judge at the VR awards and the opportunity to contribute to our Insights panels.
