MU also lands in the Metaverse
After the e-MilanoUnica Connect project, the B2B marketplace platform, created in collaboration with Pitti Immagine, to increase the visibility of the collections and foster international relations between companies and the app designed to facilitate visits to the fair, the 37th Milano Unica will offer an even more immersive experience thanks to the Metaverse.
The three-dimensional space created ad hoc, within which individuals will be able to move, share and interact as in reality, but eliminating its spatial limits, was created in collaboration with PwC Italia. The latter signs the project, which for the first time will invite visitors to the event via augmented reality.
The avatar will be the narrative voice of this 37th edition, inviting to the show, updating on the new products present, accompanying visitors to discover where to live the experience in the Metaverse.
“Having decided to embrace the virtual dimension allows Milano Unica to extend the reach of the event into an immersive space, enhancing its global accessibility and inclusiveness. Thanks to an unprecedented storytelling, we were able to create an engaging and engaging journey for sector operators”, comments Erika Andreetta, Partner PwC Italia, Emea Fashion & Luxury Leader.
