Qatar’s position as a global leader in energy production, major financial center, and blossoming tourist destination provides ample opportunity for Virtual and Augmented Reality to benefit the entire nation. Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies have the power to transform vocational training, educational best practices, and create unique attractions and accommodations for locals and expatriates.

“I’m extremely excited about the continued prospects of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in Qatar especially with regards to the energy and tourism sectors,” said Hamad Al-Abdan, CEO of EON Reality TTR. “By highlighting the possibilities that VR/AR knowledge transfer can provide, EON Reality can continue to help Qatari and regional companies with their training, marketing, edutainment, and safety needs.”
