Metaverse 101: What the Next Phase of the Internet Means for the TMT Industry

Thursday, March 16, 2023
60 minutes

Today, even the mention of the word "metaverse" invites a visceral reaction, ranging from pure enthusiasm to rote skepticism. But it’s clear that the early foundations of the virtual ecosystem are already here.

S&P Global Market Intelligence defines the metaverse as the long-term vision for the next phase of the internet, which will feature a single, shared, immersive and persistent 3D virtual space where humans interact with one another, and with data, enhancing the physical world as much as replacing it.

Join our veteran TMT analysts for an interactive discussion on:

  • The metaverse and its implications across industrial, enterprise, and social spheres
  • Impacts for manufacturing, productivity, customer experience, commerce, and entertainment applications
  • An outlook for M&A activity and future investment trends
