Metacon is coming to Dubai for its first edition ever and will take place this year on the 28th and 29th of May at The Arena, Dubai World Trade Centre. This ‘metaverse into reality’ pop culture convention is powered by Gala, the global leader of Web3 entertainment with the goal to bring professional gaming experiences. This event will celebrate and showcase the latest technologies in gaming and tech, esports, NFTs, Web3 and more.

The convention consists of four exciting elements which include MetaStage, MetaConnect, MetaArena and MetaSpaces where attendees can learn about the gaming history as well as the ins and outs of new technology. They will also get to meet and interview the founders, creators, collectors, investors, experts and enthusiasts within the community.

Among the special guests attending MetaCon are e-sports pioneer and member on the advisory board for the Emirates E-sports Federation Abdelrahman Mohamed and CEO of Paid Network and Master Ventures Kyle Chasse, just to name a few. There will also be guest speakers including the CEO of Dubai Blockchain Centre Dr Marwan Al Zarouni, President of Blockchain Jason Brink, NFT artist Idriss B, and Founding Partner of Ghaf Capital Feras Al Sadek. But that’s not all, more A-list names will be revealed as the date nears.

The MetaSpaces will be filled with booths to view and try out the latest blockchain and NFT games, as well as meet the most famous entities and personalities in the metaverse. Under MetaSpaces, guests can find the NFT Gallery by Ethereal Collective which contains artwork and collections from highly-acclaimed artists. And, if you love e-sports, the UAE’S first-ever blockchain e-sports tournament, Axie Infinity will also be hosted at the MetaArena.

For those who would like to take advantage of MetaCon’s networking opportunities, BAPES Lounge will be a special networking area where entrepreneurs, startups, and SMEs can mingle with each other and learn more about blockchain technologies. BAPES will also host the first-ever metavestor club that empowers crypto companies forged in the metaverse and PLUCK, the first and largest digital marketplace for crypto collectables and NFTs in the world.

Tickets to MetaCon will be released soon and the best part is that every ticket purchased can be turned into a NFT. You are definitely going to want to be a part of this convention, so do not miss out on this great opportunity.
