Recording: Featured Session: Building an Open Metaverse, Mar 14, 2023

This session will focus on the importance of collaboration and building out partnerships in order to create an open metaverse; the session will also touch on what brands need to do in order to make this happen. As it stands today, a sole metaverse does not exist. What does exist are thousands of virtual worlds, many of which are connected through Ready Player Me’s network; an avatar system used by over 3,000 app and game developers. It is this interoperable network that has earned their reputation as a default avatar platform for the metaverse.
In addition to partnering with app and game developers, Ready Player Me has built partnerships with top names in fashion, commerce, entertainment, including New Balance, Dior, Adidas, BMW, Warner Bros, PIXELYNX, Spatial, VRChat and more.
