The first Creators of the Metaverse Fest will take place on Feb. 23 uniting Web3 experts, crypto and NFT enthusiasts and more than 9,000 Expo visitors who will exchange information on topics related to blockchain technologies and VR in e-commerce for the first time.
As part of the E-Commerce Berlin Expo 2023, the festival brings people together, regardless of their level of knowledge in the areas of Web3, Blockchain, VR and Metaverse. Despite the line-up of top speakers, admission is free to keep entry barriers low and to promote diversity and training.
Attendees will learn more about the status quo of the Metaverse. What is hype and what will soon be real? How do virtual realities generate genuine value for customers and businesses in B2C and B2B? How can brands increase their visibility via ad placements in virtual worlds?
Use Cases for VR, NFTs and Blockchain
The 17 speakers at the Creators of the Metaverse Fest offer a wide range of topics to make Web3 and VR accessible. They will cover how artificial intelligence and digital clothes are transforming the fashion industry sustainably, how to use NFTs and a community to fund the world’s first Web3 brewery.
On site, it will be possible to get a free NFT, designed in collaboration with the Web3 agency Elfz’n’Trollz to accompany the festival. The team of VZNZ will assist visitors experiencing VR and augmented reality via the advanced VR goggles HoloLens.
Increasing Interest Among Women in Jobs in Web3 and VR
The lack of skilled workers in the STEM field is noticeably slowing down Europe’s economic development, according to the consulting firm McKinsey.
Doubling the share of women in tech roles to up to 45% by 2027 could boost Europe’s gross domestic product by 260 billion to 600 billion euros. This is another reason why the organizers of the Creators of the Metaverse Fest are offering a diverse selection of speakers.
“Blockchain-based technologies, virtual realities and the Metaverse will transform every industry and private sphere of life. However, metaverse platforms in particular are not yet living up to the hype. Therefore, it’s underestimated how important it is to foster diversity among those influencing essential elements of the future Metaverse now. Only through diversity do we create a complementary digital layer that offers new opportunities for everyone equally,” explains Ben Harmanus, Founder of the Creators of the Metaverse Fest and International Product Marketing and Storytelling Lead at HubSpot.
Inclusive Fest Instead of One-Way Communication
Visitors can make new contacts on the fly in the speed networking area. At noon, the organizations wom3n.DAO, Crypto Girls Club, H.E.R. DAO, or Women in Blockchain Talks (WiBT) jointly invite to a community meetup to promote diversity in the digital industry and bring it to the Metaverse. Meetups with speakers, an NFT art exhibition, and free drinks to conclude the day complement the agenda.
Creating the Metaverse: United or divided?
Technology corporations like Meta and Apple are developing VR headsets and non-blockchain virtual experiences. In contrast, rising Web3 start-ups aim for an open, interconnected network of metaverse platforms. In a closing panel discussion, Jürgen Geuter (ART+COM), Jocelyne Royer, and other experts will discuss whether current metaverse developments will lead to isolated communities and unequal opportunities.
