A select group of esteemed Robb Report Singapore readers were invited for a dialogue over lunch at the elusive Mandala Club, a new private members club in Singapore
Companies like Nike, Gucci and Hyundai have been making leaps into the Metaverse—with visions of becoming pioneers of a new digital economy, where users can create, buy, and sell goods. Just last year at the end of 2021, the metaverse market size reached US$38.5 billion, and is expected to exceed US$47 billion in 2022. The astronomical growth is showing no signs of slowing down either. Estimates say that by 2026, 25 per cent of people will spend an hour or more in the metaverse each day. As we are entering the first wave of consumer engagement with the metaverse, there is no better time to begin conversations.
To exchange insights and learn more about the topic, Robb Report Singapore invited a select group of CEOs to discuss the metaverse’s effect on marketing, NFT investments and everything in between. Hosted by our president Michael von Schlippe, Simon Lim, CEO of ZICO Asset Management Pte Ltd, and Ilma Bobroviciute, Director of Marketing and Brand Initiatives at Brytehall, guests were treated to a decadent five-course lunch at Mandala Club, a new private members club in Singapore.
Here are the highlights from the afternoon.
