Event Details

The term "metaverse" first appeared in Neal Stephenson's 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash in which individuals turn into digital avatars to explore the virtual world. No longer a science fiction today, metaverse has become the buzzword in Web3 where companies from various industries establish a digital presence.


What exactly is the metaverse in a nutshell? Why is it important for companies to establish a digital footprint in the metaverse? Is it just marketing hype or there are actual business opportunities?


Please join the finale session of AmCham Tech Week and listen to thought leaders share their perspectives of metaverse and real-world applications for work, business and leisure. Panel discussion will be followed by a special NFT art presentation from Szabotage, Oculus Quest 2 VR experience and networking.


  • limited spots available for in person networking and on a first-come-first-served basis
