Can you tell us about the inspiration behind founding the Metaverse Luxury Symposium and what you hope to achieve with the event?
We have created the Metaverse X Luxury Symposium to connect the best Web3.0 innovators with top luxury brands and reimagine together the drastically evolving sector. We aim to make the ecosystem more engaging for future generations, promote sustainable solutions, and boost new-age creativity to the next level.
Can you give us an idea of what attendees can expect to learn and experience at the Metaverse Luxury Symposium?
This is an exclusive by-invitation-only event where we have selected C-Level fast-forward thinkers from the best fashion, luxury, and lifestyle brands. For a few hours, they will be exposed to the best innovative ideas, technology solutions, new customer scenarios, and the latest opportunities generated by this new world.

It will be one of its kind tech demo showcase and live experiences in Italy hosting growth start-ups like MoreNFT, WeWear, Bigthinx, Astraverse, and more. Through these scaleups, we will explore the best technologies and their impact on the future of the fashion and luxury sectors.
How does the Symposium plan to keep the momentum going after the event and keep the conversation about virtual reality and metaverse in the luxury goods industry going?
We are proudly a partner of the Metaverse Fashion Council, together we will keep the momentum alive globally including tech companies, investors, and global industry leaders. In addition, we will introduce the first think tank member-only Limitless Innovation Explorer Club, which will provide members exclusive access to events and experiences that will encourage them to participate in investment and business match-making possibilities on a global scale.
How do you see crypto, AI, virtual reality, and the metaverse impacting the luxury goods industry in the near future?
Every significant technological influence on the fashion value chain is examined. We are a real-life matrix attempting to look at how fashion, business, and technology connect. The goal is to make the fashion business more sustainable, inclusive, and artistically driven in the long run by utilizing emerging technology to create a more effective process and client experience. Digital currencies, AI, virtual reality, and the metaverse are all having a significant impact on luxury goods. Digital currencies are allowing for the formation of digitalization based on several NFTs, while AI and virtual reality are enabling new business models that leverage virtual fashion. Augmented and virtual reality technologies are allowing users to seamlessly extend the physical world into the metaverse, providing new opportunities to engage Gen Z and other tech-savvy, young consumers.
Can you share some of the most innovative and exciting examples of luxury brands utilizing crypto, AI, virtual reality, and the metaverse that you have seen?
