On Tuesday, 13th of October, starting with 7 PM, the participants at the Premiere Gala are invited to discover a digital replica of the Romanian Athenaeum, reconstructed in the Minecraft universe, which transposes the user into a world where creativity has no limits and, at the same time, to participate in the first live concert held in the video game in Romania. The Internetics 2020 Premiere Gala is organized together with IQOS, which aims to bring a new perspective on creative experiences.
In the opening of the gala, Andi Moisescu will moderate a discussion about the evolution of online communication, but also about the competition, during its 20 years of existence, together with Andrei Borțun, CEO of The Institute, Anca Ungureanu, Director of Identity and Communication UniCredit Bank and Kris Hoet, Global Chief Innovation Officer at FCB & President of the Internetics 2020 Jury.
A concert by Vița de Vie will be held in Minecraft with the help of the band’s avatars and broadcasted live from the Qreator by IQOS space.
The Internetics Awards Gala will be broadcasted live from the digital version of the Romanian Athenaeum, built in Minecraft with the support of the Nexus Gaming team, and on the Internetics and Qreator by IQOS Facebook pages.
