Dubai Airport Freezone (DAFZ), a dynamic business hub located at the very heart of global trade, has announced its debut in the metaverse with the launch of METADAFZ.
In line with Dubai’s Metaverse Strategy, METADAFZ seeks to give the free zone’s clients a seamless digital experience in the metaverse, allowing them to hold meetings via a virtual platform.
More precisely, the initiative aims to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) and enterprises to the free zone by exposing DAFZ’s unique offerings, products, and solutions.
DAFZ opted to unveil METADAFZ during GITEX 2022 since this five-day event (from today, October 10 to October 14) symbolizes the UAE’s goals to accelerate digital transformation in the region and strengthen the UAE’s position as a significant contributor to the international digital economy.
This initiative is another milestone in Dubai’s digital transformation path, which aims to generate 40,000 new virtual jobs and inject $4 billion into the Dubai economy over the next five years.
Other Dubai-based Web3 initiatives include:
- Dubai’s Museum of the Future announcing a partnership with Binance NFT marketplace for the release of its first NFT collection, “The Most Beautiful NFTs in the Metaverse.”
- MasterCard, Accenture, Meta, and others Joining Dubai Metaverse Forum
- Dubai Police announcing its second NFT collection, which will be unveiled during GITEX 2022.
