AMSTERDAM, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Meta Festival is back! After a successful event in Berlin in 2021, this year, Meta Festival, founded by global digital agency DEPT® and JOURNEE, is inviting people from around the world to take a peek into the metaverse. With opportunities to hear from leading brands, Web3 innovators, and technologists, attendees will be able to connect with each other in a 24-hour, virtual playground. Taking place on Tuesday 28 June in Metapolis – the festival’s virtual world – all you need is a device and internet connection to attend.
Speakers for the Meta Festival include technologists, Web3, blockchain and cryptocurrency experts, startup founders, artists, writers, creatives and more. The first wave of confirmed speakers hail from brands including H&M, Calvin Klein, Headspace, WIRED, Volkswagen Group, Coca Cola, Netflix, Paramount, PwC and Heineken, and well-known names within the metaverse space like Cathy Hackl and DRESSX.
“Despite the fact that everyone is talking about the metaverse, only a few people have actually experienced it,” said Max Pinas, executive creative director at DEPT®. “We want all brands and interested people to be able to experience the metaverse’s potential. We hope to help attendees discover the next phase of their brand’s virtual life by bringing together a diverse range of speakers and entertainment.”
The festival is centered around five themes: Web3; Immersive Experiences; Diehard Tech; Pop Culture, and the Betterverse. In addition to these five stages of ongoing sessions, the event will feature live programming tailored to each region, taking place between 2 p.m.-5 p.m. local time in Singapore, Amsterdam, and New York.
