The world’s first 24-hour Metaverse festival


Finally, the Metaverse is here. And you are invited to pioneer this incredible new terrain with us.

Despite the fact that everyone is talking about “the Metaverse”, only a few people have actually experienced it. That’s why we decided to make it a reality for all brands and interested parties during a game-changing event. Bringing everything you need to know about Web3, NFTs, creative technology, and next-gen marketing. 

Meta Festival combines work, play, connection and fun. From Asia to Europe to the United States. Each and every timezone will have featured content that’s relevant to them, from live entertainment to mind-blowing talks. Making it the place to be for anyone, everywhere, all over the world. 

Meta Festival takes place in a virtual world called Metapolis, a one-of-a-kind, three-dimensional world where you can stroll around, bust out your favourite dance moves, connect with other festival-goers and, of course, fly!

1 Metaverse, 10 inspiring stages, 100 of the world’s leading Web3 experts. And, most importantly, your own personalised virtual self. 

To visit Metapolis, you don’t need a plane ticket, a passport, or a visa. All you need is a smart device and a reliable internet connection. The future is here; see you there!

2021 has been a breakthrough year for cryptocurrency: 

• The long awaited Bitcoin ETF hit Wall Street
• NFTs took the world by storm!
• We saw our first major exchange go public via Coinbase.
• The first country, El Salvador, began to recognize Bitcoin as legal tender.
• The community began taking serious steps to address some of the major limitations facing adoption by focusing on blockchains that are both scalable and eco-friendly.

While 2021 was exciting, there is no doubt the industry will build upon this momentum in 2022. And, with so much potential and fast-growing expectations around the impact of cryptocurrency on society, 2022 will be a critical year for brands to get involved. 

16:00 – 17:00 CET

Join us on April 6th for an exclusive event where we will explore NFT’s, the opportunities for brands and businesses and their environmental impact in an interactive panel discussion joined by key industry players.

Launching a virtual AR puffer jacket by using full body tracking and getting this AR merch for sale as a limited edition NFT drop? Bring on the challenge! On April 6th, DEPT® will host an interactive panel session to help brands understand the power of virtual AR fashion and virtual goods more broadly, with a sneak peek into the future of digital ownership via NFT. We will share all lessons learned from this little in-house experiment alongside a mix of brands, artists and NFT platforms who will help us uncover the opportunities for brands in the digital space. During the event, we will address the climate controversy around NFTs and explore ways in which this new form of ownership can be sustainable.
