Accenture – Making The Metaverse Work

The race to build the metaverse is on, but tech, business and society have competing visions for what it should be. Can we make a metaverse that works for everyone?

From the stepping stones of augmented reality to fully immersive virtual worlds, the metaverse is already firmly under construction. But at this stage in the development of the metaverse are tech companies, businesses and users working from the same blueprint? As we consider the next evolution of our digital lives, what will it take to create a metaverse that delivers value for business, secures new forms of transactions and ensures safety for all stakeholders?

Join us at The Dock, Accenture’s flagship R&D and global innovation centre, where a panel from across industry, start-ups and academia will explore key questions behind the promise – and pitfalls – of the metaverse:

  • Where  are the opportunities and value-driven applications for business?
  • How is the technology ecosystem developing and coalescing?
  • What does privacy, trust and ethics  look like on metaverse platforms?


Date: Thursday 2 June 2022

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Location: Accenture The Dock, 7 Hanover Quay, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, D02 YN32

Join us after the panel for refreshments to connect and exchange with peers from across the metaverse and innovation communities.
