Marketing in the Metaverse: Hype vs. Reality (hybrid)

General PublicMedia & Tech


We often hear about the Web3 revolution, and with it, the potential of the Metaverse for brands and businesses. A couple of years in, it is time to reassess where this potential lies. Our panel will feature leading tech, design and marketing practitioners with a proven track record in Metaverse and Web3-related projects. They will demonstrate some capabilities of the technology. The panel will also discuss what is currently possible, what will be possible and what the right approach may be for different sectors, brands and company sizes to leverage this technology for business growth in 2023 and beyond.

Our speakers are from Unit9, which has successfully developed strategy and execution of Metaverse projects for brands such as Porsche, Coca-Cola and Meta itself, as well as an NYU professor who is also involved in venture capital investment in innovative digital startups and Web3 related projects. Gary Kreissman, founder of Group PRM, will moderate the panel.

If you are interested in understanding the commercial and promotional opportunities of Web3 and Metaverse, don't miss this event.
