Didn’t make it to MET AMS, the first-of-its-kind metaverse festival in Amsterdam? Europe’s first metaverse festival, the Amsterdam Metaverse Festival focused more on the cultural side of NFTs. Packed with art routes, concerts, immersive installations, and much more, the festival offered a whole lot to those in attendance.
If you are wondering what the highlights of the first-ever MET AMS festival are and who were the biggest names in attendance, this guide’s for you. Let’s take a look at what you missed at this year’s Amsterdam Metaverse Festival between June 14 and 17.
Free Gifts at Amsterdam’s Metaverse Festival
Needless to say, no NFT conference is complete without free gifts. As Europe’s first metaverse festival, MET AMS gave out some awesome presents to visitors. Firstly, Magnum ice cream, an official partner of MET AMS, offered free Magnums to attendees at the Magnum stand.
The company also opened its first Magnum virtual pleasure museum in Decentraland. Festival attendees could wear a VR headset to enjoy the Magnum museum in the Decentraland metaverse.
Then, attendees were also lucky enough to get this super cool wearable from MET AMS x BEYOND. The wearable, compatible with the Decentraland metaverse, epitomizes the cool and futuristic vibe that was the conference itself.
Amazing Booths From Top Metaverse Giants
Habbo Hotel, the OG game from millennials’ childhoods, also entered the metaverse. At their stand you could learn a little more about why they are back – and with a vengeance! Perhaps millennials won’t be the only Habbo stans from now on!
What’s more, CyberKongz featured at MET AMS heavily, with their own Kongz Statue and a aptly banana flavored beer. Plus, CyberKongz held their own very special competition for those who posed in front of the statue and tagged OOH! on Twitter! Exciting!
Furthermore, the CyberKongz Crew also hosted their own afterparty for holders and friends. Although we were very happy to be invited, NFTevening didn’t manage to make it. We did, however, manage to sample one of those tasty banana beers!
From Async Art to Rebel Society NFT, Metafluence, Voyager DAO, and more, several projects took over the plug-and-play booth at MET AMS.
