QBO Innovation Hub, a platform that supports Filipino startups, will be holding an event called “Metaverse and The Future of Design” on Oct. 21. In partnership with Accenture, the networking mixer will gather startup founders, developers, artists, players, creators, and enablers in the metaverse space in the Philippines.
“Our aim for this event is to help different stakeholders, creative talents, and startup founders in enriching their present knowledge of the metaverse so that they can further explore how they can dive into developing new content and products that can be showcased in this exciting new platform,” said Katrina Chan, executive director of QBO Innovation Hub. “Collaboration among the different stakeholders, especially in such a new space as the metaverse, will hopefully result in the explosion of new ideas that will lead to innovative executions that will further distinguish the Philippine startup scene.”
A panel discussion on Creating, Investing and Collecting NFTs will also be conducted at the event.
Arvin Yason, Innovation Hub Director of Accenture Philippines, will give the welcome talk; Gio Lantin, Open Innovation and Metaverse Lead, will deliver the keynote address.
The metaverse is seen by many as the next frontier in marketing products and services. According to “The New Age of Experience” Prosumer Report on the metaverse, a series of thought leadership reports regularly published by the Havas Group, 9 out of 10 Filipino “prosumers” (or 20% of consumers who are influential and market drivers) believe the future of the internet is this new immersive world.
