After huge success in launching the first MetaWeek in early March 2022, NexChange Group presents the second edition of the large-scale international event, taking place September 11 to 14, 2022 in Dubai.
As one of the world’s leading proponents in using cutting edge tech like blockchain and Metaverse tools, Dubai has been accumulating regional efforts in the digital economy development and Metaverse adoption, with the implementation of the Dubai Metaverse Strategy and The Higher Committee for Future Technology and Digital Economy launched just recently. The strategy aims to increase the contribution of the Metaverse sector to the Emirate’s economy to $4 billion and to create 40,000 virtual jobs by 2030.
Jason Luo, CEO of BitForex: “Although we are in a period of uncertainty for the digital assets market, there are challenges and opportunities. The great potential of the industry and huge demands and interests coming from our users and investors towards digital assets and the financial industry are still exciting. BitForex has been committed to providing a convenient and diverse environment to welcome the next bullish market.”
A week-long event will culminate in a 2-day MetaWeek Summit, set for September 12-13, taking place at the Grand Hyatt Dubai hotel. From regulatory efforts towards Web 3.0, to digital asset market trends, to gaming ecosystems, to digitisation of corporate infrastructures, to investment strategies, to DAOs and NFTs utilities and marketing – dozens of themes related to the world of Web 3.0 and Metaverse will be thoroughly discussed at the summit’s agenda.
“Metaweek proved to be very beneficial to pax.world after our attendance earlier this year where we went on to build multiple priceless partnerships and win Metaverse of the Year in Dubai” says Frank Fitzgerald, Founder of pax.world. “We believe the Metaverse is not only for fun and business, but community building and education. Metaweek also represents this along with our mutual desire to make the Metaverse open for everyone. This is all why it was easy to say yes when they asked if we’d join them again in September.”
Tapping into new larger audiences is one of the best ways for world known brands from various sectors to benefit from entering the world of Metaverse. New communities and myriads of ways to interact with them define the virtual realms and spark more interest from luxury fashions brands, tech giants and smaller businesses.
George Paliani, CEO of CoinsPaid Media:
“Many types of blockchain projects avoid the word “media” and call themselves decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs), communities or other variants. However, blockchain media has a number of advantages. Such projects can show the way with features that support Web 3. Now we have the opportunity to speak the same language with a new generation.”
Piers Dunhill, Founder, Dunhill Ventures: “The investment interest in Metaverse and Web 3.0 solutions from corporate entities and private offices and funds from all over the world has been increasing exponentially over the last months. It shows that Metaverse has become extremely valuable. It opens up many possibilities for the venture capital flow, giving a change for Metaverse to become reality.”
