In the Conference & Workshop Zone, more than 40 experts in technology, business, product development and Metaverse trends will be on the stage in various seminar sessions throughout the three-day event. Each seminar is expected to cater at least 200 participants.

 

Topics of discussion include “Why Metaverse is the Next Big Thing in Web 3.0”, “Now and Next Metaverse Technology”, “Big Players”, “Metaverse Trend and Movement in Thailand & ASEAN”, “Rule & Role of Government Agencies, Infrastructure & Network”, and “Thailand's Status in Metaverse”.

 

Business experts will also discuss how virtual reality can be used in different businesses such as tourism, gaming, real estate, finance, health & wellness, sport, entertainment, education, advertising and e-commerce.

 

 

“The highlight of this expo is a workshop session by professionals who will guide you how to create your own world in Metaverse and showcases in more tangible ways,” said Natee  Thepphoch, Om Platform’s managing director.  “Do not miss the opportunity to expand your horizons and learn how Metaverse can eliminate the limitation of imagination and possibility.”

 

Om Platform recently held the Block Mountain CNX 2022 event, which was the largest blockchain and digital asset expo in the Northern part of Thailand for four consecutive years.

 

MetaverseXR, led by CEO Satean Boonmanan, a pioneer in Thailand’s e-sports and gaming gear industry, has shown successful implementation projects in Metaverse both in Thailand and overseas.

 

 

“Metaverse is gradually changing the way people live, work and do business,” said Satean. “For example, augmented reality [AR] glasses have been developed to be more comfortable and have more applications in both daily life and in professional aspects.  People spend their time with various activities eg shopping, entertaining, socializing, doing business.” 

 

“I visited an international Metaverse expo in San Francisco last year and I am confident that the Thailand Metaverse Expo will be one of the best locations in the world to host future Metaverse events.” said Satean.

 

Satean added that the estimated value of Metaverse will significantly jump from US$36.7 billion to $947 billion by 2030 and people will spend more time in Metaverse.

 

It is estimated that Thailand Metaverse Expo 2022 will have over 5,000 participants at Royal Paragon Hall, Siam Paragon and more than 20,000 online viewers.
