We knew that immersive technologies were gaining more and more ground and that they were going to play a key role in the future, but we never imagined that the pandemic would speed up the processes so much. At the same time that this was happening, other phenomena were happening such as cryptocurrencies, NFTs and other factors that would lead to what is now the metaverse,” said Julien Brun.

The main objective of the meeting is that through the interaction between the leading companies in the sector and those visitors who participate in the VirtualityBA experience, all the possibilities that will arise can be better understood. in the new virtual worlds, of which without a doubt, everyone will be a part at different levels.

“I had the opportunity to live for a few years in other countries. Before each trip I was going to take, I took the time to research each place. When I arrived at my destination, I already knew where I could study, which jobs were the best paying, the tourist places I was going to visit in my free time and a wide range of bars and restaurants that I couldn’t miss. Today I feel that Virtuality is going to help me prepare for my next great journey, the metaverse”, said Martin Pérez, member of the VirtualityBA team.

We all know that global warming and excessive consumption in the West are directly related, but if we lower consumption on earth, people will lose their jobs. The metaverse is going to give us new possibilities of consuming without harming the planet, we are going to want things that do not yet exist and that those who are the first to understand the new world will be the ones to produce them and sell them to us”, explained Claudio Dicmonas , from VirtualityBA.

First technology fair in Latin America 100% carbon neutral

The growing concern about the carbon footprint linked to industry and technological processes has motivated various initiatives in the sector with the purpose of adjusting to the sustainable development objectives set forth in the Paris Agreement.

In this context, technology companies opt for more sustainable models, something that is not only better for the planet, but also provides greater productivity, lower costs and a better relationship of trust with users who demand more from political companies every day of sustainability and sustainability.

In this sense, the producers of the Virtuality fair set as an objective offset the emissions generated in the event and thus become the first 100% Carbon Neutral Technology Fair in Latin America.

This milestone is reached with the participation of GBM, a full-stack startup based on natural assets that uses web technology to regenerate the planet meter by meter. The operational and operational tasks of the event will be measured to determine the size of the footprint generated and thus calculate the number of square meters of forest that must be protected.

The GBM project already has an area of ​​24,500 hectares, the GS1 Reserve located in the Paraná jungle (Misiones). By acquiring a gbmland (NFTs) you are ensuring the preservation of 1 m2 of forest for 100 years, which is cared for and monitored by GBM’s technological equipment and security systems.

VirtualityBA will have the number of hectares corresponding to the estimate of the carbon footprint generated by the event, thus inaugurating the Virtuality Jungle in the GBM metaverse.
