Setting another first, X-Verse, in partnership with Decentraland, curates one of the immersive metaverse journeys, providing a never before seen experience into the greatest shifts and the most potentially disruptive industry applications of the metaverse.

With real-world case-studies and never-seen-before virtual experiences across manufacturing, gaming, education, healthcare, retail and the future of work, X-Verse will enable global enterprises to understand and adopt this nascent technological development.
