Web3. Metaverse. NFT drop. These are innovation buzzwords for this year’s fifth Synapse Summit, expected to draw more than 5,000 to the Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa on February 17.
“We’re really leaning into a lot of the hotter technologies,” says Synapse CEO and Co-Founder Brian Kornfeld. “We’re having a lot of fun with that.”
From the decentralization of Internet data offered through a Web3, to the metaverse virtual world that will change how people live, to non-fungible tokens for digital collectables, they’ve got it covered.
The slate of keynote speakers includes Cathy Hackl, CEO and chief metaverse officer of The Futures Intelligence Group, who Kornfeld describes as “godmother of the metaverse she helped create.”
She’ll speak on “what the metaverse is, why it matters and practical steps businesses and individuals can take to step into this dynamic new world,” says Lauren Prager, Synapse’s chief strategy officer.
