February 2022; JW Marriott Marquis Dubai enters the RendezVerse, to join the web3.0 evolution of meetings and events.
The team at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai will commit to the future of the hospitality events industry by becoming a first adopter and central figure in RendezVerse, the metaverse for hotels and events.
By joining the RendezVerse Development Program, the team at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai will help define the evolution of how event professionals collaborate in the metaverse in an effort to save our most valuable assets; time, money and the planet.
The RendezVerse Development Project aims to work with industry leaders across the sector to bring their vision of a corporate metaverse to life. As one of the world’s tallest hotels, The JW Marriott Marquis Dubai epitomises 5-star luxury, featuring all the amenities one might expect, including an outdoor pool, spa, 10 restaurants & lounges, situated in the heart of the city’s downtown district.
The location and facilities coupled with over 80,000 square feet of adaptable event space both indoors and out, including a striking ballroom, make the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai the perfect vehicle to develop and showcase the capabilities of the RendezVerse platform.
In the simplest terms, RendezVerse creates 3D models of real environments in which people, using VR headsets, can meet as avatars to walk, talk and explore the endless possibilities that can then be brought to life in the real world. But it is so much more than that.
The combined teams will bring the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai to virtual life allowing event planners/buyers to not only visit all aspects of the venue, view examples of previous events but also plan their bespoke concept to the most finite detail from decor and menus to presentation formats and schedules, all from the comfort of their own desk.
JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, General Manager Bill Keffer said; “We are truly excited to be leading the charge in what we see as the inevitable future of the corporate hospitality industry.”
RendezVerse Founder and CEO, Peter Gould said; “We couldn’t ask for a better development partner than the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai. It’s a flagship property demonstrating first in class service and facilities and as such the perfect venue with whom to bring the RendezVerse to life.”
