Networking and metaverse as a success factor

After an extensive briefing, the students started the market research process. By means of interviews and SWOT analysis, the teams worked out clear value propositions that should attract the attention of the community and stimulate commitment.

In doing so, they exploited all the possibilities of digital communication with great ingenuity and in a professional manner, even taking a forward-looking step towards the metaverse.

Brand Managerin Katharina Kaiser sums up: “There are some propositions that we can definitely consider. In particular, one or the other event will be able to find its way into reality. The idea of incorporating the Metaverse was particularly exciting, because this is certainly something completely new and not yet seen in this way for our target groups.”

“At the beginning, the students faced the challenge of filtering out their approach from a very complex brief. This was an important process that reflected real business. In the end, very creative, coordinated and fine-tuned packages of measures emerged.”
