Khalil Nur Khalil, the Executive Secretary of the Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency (KADIPA) has announced via its website that this year’s annual Investment Summit “KADINVEST 7.0” will not be a regular hybrid summit via Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams but will be fully immersive in the Metaverse. Participants will be able to virtually walk in with their avatars regardless of proximity, network, grab a seat, and take a tour around exhibition booths in the Metaverse.
Greysoft Technologies Limited, also known as “GreyHobb,” will power this fully immersive and unforgettable experience. It will be the first of its kind, for a government summit to be held in the metaverse, and Kaduna is happy to take the lead as a pace-setter under the leadership of His Excellency, Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.
