About the Summit

GamesBeat’s lead writer, Dean Takahashi, will lead day 2 “Into the metaverse 2” with top speakers including many who helped us create an insightful conference in 2021. 

The Metaverse seemed like science fiction for so many decades, but now, during the pandemic, it feels like we’re nearly there. Audiences who are exhausted with Zoom video calls may be readier than ever to try out something in a virtual environment. True to VentureBeat’s top coverage, programming will include both a gaming and transformative technology perspective. Our topics will cover startups, technology, science fiction ideas, ethics, infrastructure, blockchain, and more.

We’ll review what we learned in the past year of focusing on the metaverse. We’ll see who has moved technology forward and how much the metaverse has invaded the culture of gaming. We’ll look at all of the avenues that could lead to the metaverse, and all of the different threads of the future that could unfold. Will it be accidental? Will it start with a walled garden? Or will we move straight into the open metaverse that will be decentralized and controlled by no one? Is it all just an illusion, or will the metaverse govern the commerce of the future?
