Christine Perey is a spime wrangler and evangelist. She came to this conclusion after nearly two decades as a consultant, analyst and advisor to companies, young and old. In her youth she wrangled on horseback in the Colorado Rockies. Then, for 20 years she wrangled daughters and new technologies in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California. Now she wrangles spimes in cyberspace from her balcony over Lake Geneva in Montreux, Switzerland.
Christine usually wrangles with a team. It’s always an interesting process of linking the past and the present with the future.

Perey has authored 100s of feature articles and blog posts on the topics of multimedia communications and Augmented Reality. She is frequently quoted in trade and business media. She is an invited speaker at industry events and serves on panels and committees dedicated to the advancement of rich media experiences in business and consumer markets.
Since 2006 Christine has focused exclusively on Augmented Reality. That’s when the stars aligned strongly suggesting how AR could bring new value to people living and working in the physical world. This wasn’t a big leap because she had already anticipated and helped to accelerate three prior emerging technology adoption curves.
She began her career in emerging technology as the publisher and editor of the QuickTime Forum from 1991-1993 and the founder of the QuickTime Movie Festival.
In 1993, she became a leading advocate for personal video communications, working with prominent vendors to expand the market for use of digital video in daily life over the next decade. After she moved to Switzerland in 2004, Perey co-authored the Personal Mobile Video Communications market research report published by Wainhouse Research in 2005.
In 2006 and 2007 she conducted all research and prepared two Informa Telecoms & Media market research reports: Mobile Social Networking: Communities and Content on the Move, and Mobile Social Networking: Business, Technology and Mobile Operator Strategies.
Still focusing on the future of mobile computing, in 2007 Perey co-founded Mobile Monday Switzerland with Claude Florin and other volunteers.
Perey has since initiated, chaired and co-chaired dozens of community events. For example, she chaired the W3C Workshop on the Future of Social Networking, conducted January 15-16, 2009, which led to the development of the Open Social Web Incubator Group. She also was the chair of the Mobile Committee of the ISMAR 09 conference where she conducted the Mobile Magic Wand Augmented Reality Workshop. She has been a volunteer chair and participated in seven ISMAR conferences since 2006. She founded and was the organizer of the Swiss Augmented Reality Meetup Group.
Anticipating the need for developers to be able to port and re-use Augmented Reality content and experiences between different delivery platforms, she began convening meetings of the grassroots community of people advocating for open and interoperable Augmented Reality in 2009. She has since participated over 15 standards working groups and initiatives aimed at the establishment of common frameworks and specifications for interoperable AR.
When, in 2011, she foresaw the convergence of the Internet of Things and Augmented Reality, she co-founded the Internet of Things Zurich Meetup Group.
During a workshop she co-organized in 2012, Perey concluded that Augmented Reality in enterprise and industrial settings would have profound impacts on operational efficiencies. With clients and partners, she set out to accelerate this trend. Soon thereafter she formed the AR for Enterprise Alliance, an industry consortium focusing on enterprise AR adoption, and served until 2016 as the first executive director.
Perey is continues to participate in communities and working groups advancing the adoption of Augmented Reality while serving as a strategic advisor to consulting clients worldwide.
