While the actualisation of a fully-developed metaverse is years away, consumers are increasingly spending time in dynamic virtual worlds. For brands and retailers, this presents new opportunities for commerce, creativity and community-building. But developing a metaverse strategy requires deep understanding of how the space is changing and careful alignment with your business and brand goals.

Join us at our next in-person and digital event: BoF Professional Summit: New Frontiers in Fashion and Technology. Limited tickets are available to attend in person in New York — or join the global livestream, available to BoF Professional All-Access members. The BoF Professional Summit is presented by Coinbase.

We have assembled a stellar line-up of expert speakers to share their experiences and advice on how brands should think about their metaverse strategies, including:

  • RTFKT co-founder Benoit Pagotto will join BoF founder and editor-in-chief Imran Amed to share tangible opportunities for fashion within the metaverse and the backstory of Nike’s acquisition of his company.
  • Creative technologist Ommy Akhe will provide an update on the new technologies that will take the metaverse mainstream and power a new wave of AR experiences that benefit both brand and consumer.
