NTR – The Metaverse Summit

In the last 20 years, the smartphone has rapidly conquered the planet. This omnipresent screen – and with it the mobile Internet – have radically changed the way we use and enjoy information and entertainment. Over the next 20 years, we will access digital space less and less through this glass pane. Instead, digital space will surround us.

Everyday human life will take place more and more in a digital biotope. We are now entering the walkable and embodied Internet and starting the journey into a new era together.

Enter the Next-Gen Internet!

NTR will be a unique blend of inspiring keynotes from industry thought leaders, with broad knowledge-sharing by experts on all aspects of XR technology and business models, as well as a bar camp-style forum to discuss the impact of the Metaverse on society, ethics, politics and sustainability.

The integration of the exclusive AUREA Awards as part of the Metaverse Summit aims to facilitate the collaboration between innovators from the immersive entertainment industry and experts of the broader digital economy.

The Summit will be embedded in the unique atmosphere at Europa-Park, where VR experiences can be gained in a variety of entertaining ways.

This two-day Summit is designed to inspire – we want to learn and debate as well as experience the Metaverse together.

We are ready to discuss the future of the Metaverse and join you on the journey into this new world.
