AvaCon, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the growth, enhancement and development of the metaverse, virtual worlds, augmented reality and 3D immersive and virtual spaces.
We hold conventions and meetings to promote educational and scientific inquiry into these spaces, and to support organized fan activities, including performances, lectures, art, music, machinima, and much more.
Our primary goal is to connect and support the diverse communities and practitioners involved in co-creating and using virtual worlds, and to educate the public and our constituents about the emerging ecosystem of technologies broadly known as the metaverse.
The Metaverse is created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space. Conceptually, it is a future iteration of the internet, made up of persistent, shared, 3D places linked into a perceived virtual universe.
