m&i, a networking trade events company in the MICE sector, is investing in the future of the events industry by partnering with RendezVerse for a project that will help shape the corporate metaverse.
This partnership will see m&i showcasing RendezVerse to an audience of over 1,400 delegates throughout their three 2022 flagship Forums taking place in Seville, Porto, and Punta Cana.
During these events, Peter Gould, CEO of RendezVerse, will introduce how RendezVerse will leverage Web3.0 technologies to transform the way hotels and destinations market themselves in an effort to save our most valuable assets: time, money, and the planet.
RendezVerse will also conduct live demonstrations at each m&i flagship Forum, where they will premiere the pioneering RendezVerse experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to virtually inspect a range of hotel environments and view specific areas of iconic properties, such as the Madrid Marriott Auditorium Hotel & Conference Center, JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, Atlantis, The Palm Dubai and Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, which are all signed up to the RendezVerse Development Partner Programme.
m&i will take an active role in the development of RendezVerse, which will help the Meetings & Events industry become greener and more efficient. The vision is to simplify the current and outdated booking processes of the hospitality industry and implement new technological processes that will make it easier and more convenient for event planners to inspect properties. This will reduce the costs, money, time, and environmental impact associated with visiting a property in person.
Richard Barnes, CEO of m&i, said: “We are very excited about the possibilities that RendezVerse is going to uncover for our industry. m&i has always been on the front line of innovation, both by challenging the traditional event format and incorporating new technology to shape our industry for a more efficient future. Our collaboration with RendezVerse further solidifies this ambition.”
Peter Gould, CEO of RendezVerse, said: “We are delighted to work with m&i and have the opportunity to showcase our hotel and events metaverse platform. The feedback we’ve received so far from major players in the hotel sector has been overwhelming, and we can’t wait to show what RendezVerse can do for the m&i community.”
For more than 15 years, m&i has been moving, shaking and innovating within the MICE industry. The global networking events they create are designed to be a welcome break from the traditional industry tradeshow, with a firm focus on building lasting business relationships as well as unforgettable memories. Their team is made up of event professionals with the shared goal of connecting the MICE world.
m&i offer attendees a wide range of events that each include smart-matched 1–2–1 meetings, unique networking experiences and an exciting social itinerary. From their larger Flagship Forums to smaller specialist and more exclusive Forums, m&i provides the platform for MICE professionals to grow their business and broaden their industry network.
In 2022, m&i will be holding events in Berlin, Seville, Porto, Dubrovnik, Madeira and Punta Cana.
