They call the metaverse the next generation of the internet, but it is so much more than that. It brings everyday situations to life in a rich, immersive way. Surreal Events is one provider that stands out by making metaworlds that matter.
What is Surreal Events?
Surreal Events was founded in 2020 by Chicago-based Echelon Design, an event marketing and production company with offices in Chicago, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Portland.
The pandemic presented many challenges for event and marketing companies and, as a result, spurned the development of new ways to connect, collaborate, and host events. In order to survive, Echelon Design took its business online to the metaverse and continues to thrive by creating the most realistic 3D virtual spaces for any type of event. The result of their efforts is a best-in-class Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that companies use to express themselves through rich 3D experiences.
