NFTs . . .
The MetaVerse . . .
The building blocks of the Metaverse and NFTs are in place. Coresight Research estimates that the digital innovations market could be worth $100+ billion by 2023, driven by hyper-growth in crypto, the Metaverse, NFTs and other related DeFi technologies. Seventy-five percent of retailers and brands will have a presence in the Metaverse by 2025.
Join us for a discussion on the Metaverse. What is it? Where is it? Who is there? Why are they there? Should your retail/consumer brand be there? How? What are the benefits?
These are just a few of the questions Robin Lewis of The Robin Report and Marie Driscoll of Coresight Research will address. We will be joined by Andy Griffiths, CMO at CULT&RAIN, a disruptive digital luxury fashion house brand, merging innovative NFT art with exclusive high end physical redeemables.
