Amsterdam hosts Europe’s first Metaverse Festival, MET AMS

The new MET AMS Metaverse Festival is the first of its kind and combines a theme conference for professionals with a range of cultural side events and evening entertainment for a diverse audience.

During the four-day conference, professionals from marketing, technology and the crypto industry, as well as artists, musicians and fashion designers from the arts and culture sectors can attend networking events and participate in workshops. Additionally, artistic tracks, concerts, and immersive installations make the metaverse theme tangible and accessible to a wider audience.

Peter Meere, co-founder of MET AMS: “Developments within Web3 are moving at a rapid pace. Outside of Europe there are many events and conferences dealing with the topic of the metaverse. We want to make sure Europe is not left behind. MET AMS is here to keep Europe informed of developments in technology and metaverse, NFTs, and Web3.

Metaverse through a cultural perspective

MET AMS is the first metaverse festival in Europe that looks at the metaverse through a cultural lens. Metaverse events often attract tech enthusiasts, crypto fanatics, and Web 3 enthusiasts, but MET AMS offers audiences a broader view of what the metaverse means to topics such as art, music, fashion, and sustainability. The festival introduces visitors to different aspects of the Metaverse.

From the impact of NFTs on culture, education, and healthcare to other important topics such as diversity, inclusion, and privacy in this new era of Web3. The festival will bring to life the revolutionary technologies of Web3 and metaverse in a special way, allowing visitors to experience this new digital world for themselves.

Edmund Howard, co-founder of MET AMS at the event: “There are so many blockchain, technology, and crypto events that matter to a limited number of people. The Metaverse and everything that comes with it will impact everyone’s lives in the future. That’s why we organized MET AMS and created an event that appeals to the masses.”

immersive experiences

Brands, musicians, and artists can bring their own vision to metaverses through immersive experiences they design and deliver themselves. This will include digital art exhibitions, light shows, and virtual and augmented reality experiences that expand visitors’ vision and sharpen their senses.

Rik Woldring, Co-founder of MET AMS, at the event: “MET AMS provides a stage for young talents from the worlds of art, music and technology. They can showcase their work and their networks to create great experiences with the most dynamic and innovative brands in the industry.”
