“Finding Value in the Metaverse”


The metaverse is an interesting term. Its roots go back to a 1992 Neal Stephenson science fiction novel that envisioned blended environment wherein the physical and digital realms could be shared, persistent and immersive.

Today’s technological advances, as well as evolving consumer preferences, are now leading to a myriad of new elements including virtual stores, virtual products, NFTs, augmented reality, virtual reality, live streaming, and the increased importance of social channels represent an important digital frontier.

While many are exploring this new space and evaluating the potential value, some bold leaders have already developed and implemented new capabilities for engaging the customers and have learned important lessons.

How can (or should) IT leaders be trying to close that gap to become real players in this impending blended environment? Are you there yet? Have you even started yet? If not, what do you need to yet do to actually be there?

The widely acclaimed “Digital Solutions Gallery” series is an ongoing nationally acclaimed forum where senior IT leaders and their business peers come together in a comfortable setting to share their experiences and insights, as well as collectively and collaboratively attack common issues.  Uniquely organized around “peer learning”, this provocative program has received high praise among participating CIOs and other senior executives in the technology and/or operations leadership community.  

There is no cost to invited senior leaders.  Sponsoring opportunities are available for invited technology product and service providers. 

Attendee information will be shared with fellow attendees and sponsors. Please contact the program if you do not wish to have your information shared at:  For additional information, please review our web privacy statement.
