McKinsey research recently forecasted that that the potential economic value of the Metaverse could generate up to $5 trillion by 2030 ,and it is this economic potential that is driving organizations to develop their own Metaverse Strategies. The program of the Metaverse Discovery Day includes Global Case Studies where attendees will understand and learn how different sectors are defining new customer experiences. This sharing of experience and transfer of learning across sectors is a key objective of the Metaverse Discovery Day.
