The AWE Nite Florence “Metaverse: Evolution and Use Cases” event took place LIVE from Laval (Mayenne, France), within the LAVAL VIRTUAL EUROPE 2022 during the opening day, in the 12th April 2022. It was the second away event, both in presence and online, of AWE Nite Florence (we were guests of the VRE-FEST in Rome in October 2021).
A live very emotional, full of surprises and unexpected events that hosted the expert panelists: CHARLIE FINK, SUZANNE BORDERS, LORENZO CAPPANNARI.
LAURENT CHRÉTIEN live from LAVAL VIRTUAL EUROPE 2022, welcomed us with a warm welcome.
Opening live from Laval, by CECILIA LASCIALFARI. Debate live from Laval, by ANTONY VITILLO.
Our speakers addressed recurring themes on the Metaverse, like:
What is the Metaverse? How can I benefit from it? How can I best use it?
Are there immersive data analytics platforms? When can we talk about virtual transformation?
How much has the media industry grown in recent years? Has the dematerialization of physical objects really disrupted industries? Are we facing a virtual transformation like we have never seen before?
