Studies estimates Immersive Technology as a landmark history of the highest order in the information age. XRA reports: - “Immersive Technology will be as a utility as the mobile device by 2025.” PwC reports: - “Immersive Technologies could deliver a 1.5 trillion boost to the global economy”. The METAVERSE is a game-changing platform. Tech titans call it the “future city” and its revolutionizing everything.

Permeating from every domain of economy and society, the strategist and leadership are in dilemma because they must rapidly adapt and evolve or dissolve to waste and lost profits.
Thus, as we come out of this pandemic, we need to be shaping tomorrow today. We need the next frontier of resilient workforce that is ready and enabled in these technologies. Sadly, this adaptive strategy is under threat.
There is a global shortage of skilled talents in these technologies. The disproportional divergence between employer's needs and employees' competence creates a disparity-gulf of gap that divides between the haves and have-nots in skilled talents among the existing workforce.
This gap is decimating our workforce. This gap could incapacitate our skilled workers and companies into crisis. Thus, in response to the above-mentioned, this conference will cultivate gargantuan waves of breakthroughs to bridge the gap of skilled talents in these technologies.
Value in a business is a function of its skilled talents. “So don't look for the needle in the haystack, just buy the haystack” - attend this conference. Engage in high level debates, grow your connections, meet the best influencers, and get fresh ideas. It's a 100% chance of a 100 times payoff.
