Announcing the Lightship VPS World Tour
Join us on our four-stop world tour to learn more about building with Lightship VPS, get hands-on training from the Niantic team, and more!

The Lightship team is going on tour and coming to a city near you!

This past May, we launched the Lightship Visual Positioning System (VPS), giving developers the ability to build immersive AR experiences in real-world locations with centimeter-level accuracy. Now, we’re journeying around the world on our Lightship VPS World Tour to showcase the power of Lightship VPS and empower you to build the real-world metaverse with hands-on support from the Niantic Lightship team.

Join us this fall as we make stops in cities around the world to host exclusive three-day events for developers to learn more about Lightship and build immersive AR experiences alongside other developers in the Lightship community.

Out tour begins in September and will have stops in:

  • London - September 9-11th
  • Seattle - September 23-25th
  • New York - October 14-16th
  • Los Angeles - November 4-6th

For each city, we’ll select up to 50 participants to be a part of these three-day workshops. Over the weekend, you’ll be introduced to the Lightship product, given first-looks at new releases, have access to exclusive training, and participate in a challenge to build with Lightship VPS. On the last day, all participants will have the opportunity to submit their build for judging! Winners will receive a cash prize, an exclusive meeting with our dev rel and partner engineering teams, and a seat in the Circuit Stream XR development course. Plus, a spotlight across Niantic Lightship channels and bragging rights!

To be one of the few selected to join us on tour, submit an application for your respective city that tells us a little more about yourself and your experiences. We are accepting all levels of developers and creators from beginner to advanced! Click the appropriate link below to get your application in first:

Applications will be approved on a rolling basis, and if you’re accepted as a participant in the Lightship VPS World Tour, you’ll receive an acceptance email with more details about the event.
