Webinars

Unpacking the metaverse

Things are moving fast in the metaverse, and in the wider world of web3, but how many of us actually fully understand its potential and what kind of role AR and VR will play within it. Depending on who you ask, this futuristic, blockchain-based space is either the next big thing in marketing – or an overhyped fad. 

Join Zappar’s Head of Customer Success, Tom DeFraine and an exclusive panel of industry experts as they unpack the value and opportunity of the metaverse for brands and businesses and AR’s role within it, highlighting the challenges faced and the potential watch-outs as we explore this brave new world of interoperability. 

What you’ll learn:

    1.    A breakdown of the metaverse and AR’s role within it
    2.    Metaverse myth-busting (the metaverse isn’t Meta) 
    3.    The opportunity for AR creators 
    4.    Strategic advice on how to plan for the metaverse
    5.    Potential pitfalls and ‘watch outs’ for brands   
    6.    Where to get started 

As with all webinars, the last 15 minutes will be left open for questions.
