The vision of the metaverse—a virtual world that anyone can plug into—was born in the minds of science-fiction writers, but is today shaping real-world strategies of the world’s leading brands. The 2nd annual Metaverse Summit will offer a wealth of use case studies and in-depth perspectives providing senior business leaders with the knowledge—and tools—to unlock the new opportunities this technology brings.
Date: Tuesday, October 10
Speakers: Cynthia Maller, Walmart; Neil Trevett, Metaverse Standards Forum
Description: For now, the metaverse is a siloed collection of separate virtual worlds, rather than one big open platform like the internet. This makes transferring assets between these spaces difficult, limiting their value. How realistic is the vision of the open metaverse? What barriers must be overcome to enable interoperability between platforms? How can collaboration, rather than competition, be encouraged? How must business models adapt to allow for this?
