🟠12:15 – 13:00 Christopher Travers, CCO and Co-Founder Offbeat Media Group, VirtualHumans.org.
Understanding Virtual Influencers and Their Impact on Our World
As our consumption habits, interests, priorities, and lives rely more and more on digital substitutes, understanding how you can play a role becomes crucial as a creator, founder, or leader. Virtual influencers are digital characters created in computer graphics software, then given a personality defined by a first-person view, and made accessible on media platforms for the sake of influence. Virtual influencers already enjoy nearly 3x the engagement rate of conventional social influencers, and as digital natives age into consumption over the coming decade, interest in entirely digital personas will only continue to grow.

🟠 16:15 – 16:45 Lorenzo Cappannari, CEO AnotheReality
How virtual transformation will disrupt your business
The metaverse, thanks to the convergence of several spatial computing technologies, is enabling the digitalization of experiences, of most physical objects (like places, people and things), and the creation of new virtual economies. This trend is an evolution of digital transformation that we call virtual transformation, and businesses need to embrace it not to be left behind. Some of them are already doing it, by upgrading their relationship with customers and employees, and their production/industrial operations.
