The Metaverse, on the other hand, offers a more immersive and interactive experience for attendees. This can lead to increased engagement and better retention of information.Another advantage of the Metaverse is its accessibility. Unlike physical events, which can be limited by location and capacity, the Metaverse offers an unlimited virtual space that can accommodate thousands of attendees worldwide
