Road to the Metaverse

Episode 7: Virtually possible: Creating an immersive experience

May 31, 2023 at 12:00 PM EST , 9:00 AM PST

Welcome to Episode 7 of Road to the Metaverse. This special edition will stream to you live from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) building, where Unity vice president Ryan Peterson will meet up in person with NYSE’s Sarah Murphy and Kim Robinson.

When Unity went public in 2020, it was the first company to use Unity Interactive Streaming for its listing day celebration, making the ceremony interactive, immersive, and fully inclusive of its globally dispersed workforce. Unity Accelerate Solutions built this technology for the NYSE, and we’ll be using it (with an all-new 360-degree environment) for this episode.

For NYSE, the bell-ringing ceremony is about celebrating a business’s accomplishments and every employee’s contributions. With Unity’s immersive real-time 3D technology, NYSE is able to offer businesses the opportunity to include every employee in the once-in-a-lifetime experience of listing day.

Reserve your webinar spot today to experience Unity Interactive Streaming firsthand and join Ryan, Sarah, and Kim for a discussion about innovation, what it means to be disruptors, and how they came to transform a pivotal moment for their community of businesses.

Important note: This event uses Unity Interactive Streaming instead of Zoom. Please save this webinar in your calendar and keep an eye out for the unique link to access the webinar.

The webinar is about to begin, and unfortunately the registration to attend this event is now closed. Not to worry, you will still be able to view this webinar here on-demand soon.
