ORLANDO, Fla. (October 13th, 2023) –  MetaCities, an award-winning metaverse company based in the United States, will debut the “MetaCenterOrlando Neon Aqua Theater” virtual world event venue inside HTC VIVERSE during MetaCenter Global Week, which will take place October 16-19 at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Florida.

“MetaCities is honored to be collaborating with HTC VIVERSE, and the team at Innovate Orlando, to bring our first-class hybrid metaverse experiences to life during MetaCenter Global Week,” stated MetaCities’ Co-Founder, Christopher Crescitelli. “With Orlando as the leading region in the United States building the foundation of the metaverse, it’s the perfect flagship MetaCity for us to debut our products. We are so excited to begin collaborating with local businesses in the MetaCenterOrlando area to turn all of their metaverse dreams into virtual reality.” 

MetaCities will host two virtual world launch party events that will take place during MetaCenter Global Week in Orlando with hybrid metaverse event activations being held on October 17-18 from 3pm to 5pm EST (daily). The events are presented in collaboration with Innovate Orlando, Immerse Global Summit, Synapse, BitBasel, Cause + Christi: Immersive XR Design, and HTC VIVERSE.

Registered guests of the MetaCenter Global Week event in Orlando will get a chance to experience the MetaCenterOrlando Neon Aqua Theater. This will be on display during the event at multiple demo areas inside the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, powered by the HTC VIVE XR Elite, a powerful, compact, and versatile all-in-one headset combined with mixed reality (MR) and virtual reality (VR).

Virtual event attendees from around the world are invited to RSVP to enjoy complimentary VIP admission to the virtual world events that will feature live music performed by DJ Celeste, XR networking events, fireside chat sessions, and special guest appearances.

destinations, MetaCities and its partners are poised to lead mass adoption toward a free and open metaverse for everyone.

MetaCities and the MetaCenterOrlando project in collaboration with HTC VIVERSE and Innovate Orlando, plan to revolutionize the way Orlando can be experienced online, from visiting tourist attractions to attending concerts, festivals, conventions, and other location-based events. 

By embracing these technologies, local businesses and event venues in Orlando can generate additional revenue by offering exclusive metaverse only products, offers, services, or virtual show tickets to a much broader global audience. Schools and universities will be able to host online classes and seminars inside their own virtual worlds equipped with hologram teachers and in-world projection screens that can live stream from any classroom in the world. The possibilities for MetaCenterOrlando are limitless.
