The National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) has put together the NIPA K-Metaverse Pavilion at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in Las Vegas, the USA from September 28 – 30, 2022. This is aimed not only to boost promising local Korean metaverse companies but also to strengthen the footing of the Korean metaverse industry as a whole.
A total of 28 Korean companies will be participating in the said NIPA K-Metaverse Pavilion in which business meetings are to be held with different interested local and overseas buyers. Moreover, official programs such as ‘K-Metaverse DEMO DAY’ will also be hosted to show support in strengthening each company’s corporate PR and in developing the overseas market.
The forum ‘Industry City,’ one of the official programs of MWC Las Vegas, with the theme ‘The Future We Aspire To Face Global Challenges with K-Metaverse’ will be initially held exclusively on Thursday, September 29, 11:45 am local time to discuss metaverse technological trends of Korean companies and the future prospects or direction of the metaverse industry. Korean companies such as Emotionwave, Aria, JJAANN, Tripbitoz, and Xrisp will be participating in the forum in order to introduce the global challenges the industry is facing. However, primarily, this forum is expected to serve and provide an opportunity to introduce K-Metaverse on the global exhibition stage of MWC, whilst also introducing local Korean companies and technologies to the global market and providing a foothold for these enterprises to enter the international scene.
Additionally, the K-Metaverse DEMO DAY, a part of the official MWC partner program, will be held on Thursday, September 29, 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm local time to promote each Korean company’s products and industry solutions as well as provide networking opportunities with domestic and foreign firms through 1:1 meetings.
