The platform is developed in collaboration with Microsoft and Accenture and is built using Microsoft Mesh. The project is built using a more immersive version of Microsoft’s Teams software called Microsoft Mesh and will see participation from around 80 different organizations, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Meta.

Davos Steps into the Metaverse

The Davos metaverse project is one of the latest attempts to redevelop a metaverse version of a real place.

To encourage participation in the project, the World Economic Forum urged companies to set up virtual stores and participate in ongoing dialogue and discussion on important issues. The virtual village will be created in partnership with Microsoft and Accenture as part of the future of public-private partnerships.

Organizers hope the metaverse version will facilitate further public-private collaborations by creating a year-round online version of Davos. According to the official announcement, the project aims to facilitate impact, global collaboration, inclusion and interaction.
