The world’s largest VR event where you can buy and sell 3D items such as avatars and real products (clothes, PCs, food, etc.) at venues on the Metaverse. It is a pioneering event of Metaverse, which has been held since 2018 and boasts more than 1 million visitors from all over the world, including Japan, and has been certified* by Guinness World Records (TM). In addition to buying and selling products, we also provide “experiences” unique to virtual spaces, such as riding vehicles, watching movies, and participating in live music in the venue. In addition, voice communication is possible between visitors, and you can enjoy the presence as if you were walking around the city together in the real world.
The virtual market began with the purpose of selling 3D data products between individuals, but in recent years, major companies that want to enter the Metaverse business have expanded the sale of real products, creating new possibilities for VR commerce.
