Dataking will be featuring three products: a 360° VR Museum solution, its MICE and enterprise meeting tool 360xCon, and its metaverse co-creation platform Hexaworld that allows users to build virtual spaces and trade 3D virtual assets.

Dataking was selected as one of six companies to take part in the K-Metaverse pavilion by the Korean National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA).

The K-Metaverse Pavilion is a key part of NIPA’s efforts to promote the Korean metaverse industry to the world.

Its participation at AWE Asia will allow Dataking to connect with AWE Asia’s community of over 2,000 XR professionals, 80 speakers, and 60 exhibitors to discuss the latest trends and developments in the XR industry.
