GatherVerse EU Online Summit

Updated: Aug 18

Five weeks from now the GatherVerse EU Online Summit will take place in collaboration with Euromersive, Immerse UK, AWE XR and many more...

The First GatherVerse online summit took place in the USA last February 2022 and was a huge success! It inspired about 10K participants in only 4 days with 80+ speakers in 70+ sessions even including the White House and many fellow partners & sponsors to facilitate this summit! All broadcasted on GatherVerse Live, the AWE XR Platform and the GatherVerse channel on YouTube.


What is GatherVerse Europe? As the USA deals with other challenges, topics, values and circumstances (economically, cultural, governmental, etc) it didn’t take long to propose a European edition of this FREE online summit (speaking about accessibility 😉) and start our brainstorm to put all in place … the dates & website were launched in May followed by the sponsor deck for those who’d like to team up financially (very much appreciated and needed!)
