During the Dubai Metaverse Assembly, more than 25 programs, talks, and workshops will take place at the Museum of the Future and AREA 2071 at Emirates Towers.

The events will address a wide range of subjects, including developing stable and expandable metaverse infrastructure, developing stable, business-friendly regulations, and offering government services online.

When the top metaverse experts from across the world congregate in Dubai, they will also discuss what significant technological and private-sector organizations should do to establish an industry that may exceed $30 trillion in 15 years.
