Forbes aspires to push the boundaries of conventional engagement methods by introducing a variety of interactive experiences, workshops, and events tailored to bring together individuals across various sectors. The goal is to encourage meaningful dialogue and networking opportunities in a lively virtual setting.

Taha Ahmed, the Chief Growth Officer at Forbes, highlighted the importance of this initiative, stating, “Our venture into The Sandbox metaverse is a testament to Forbes’ commitment to embracing the forefront of technological innovation. By establishing a permanent presence in this digital realm, we are opening up new avenues for our community to connect, learn, and grow together in ways that were previously unimaginable.” 

Design and Interaction in Forbes’ Virtual Space

Central to Forbes’ metaverse strategy is attention to design and detail within its virtual domain. The virtual space features a variety of carefully designed spaces, including a luxurious pool, a bar, and an extensive gallery dedicated to showcasing the achievements of the 2024 Under 30 honorees

To further engage its audience, Forbes has integrated QR codes throughout its virtual land in The Sandbox. This feature introduces a gamified element to the experience, inviting visitors to participate in a scavenger hunt that leads to exclusive content and insights. This approach aims to increase user interaction and educate and inform the community about the digital landscape’s evolving dynamics.

In January, Forbes revealed its partnership with Magic, a platform specializing in blockchain technology. This collaboration aims to bring media into the Web3 sphere by introducing the Forbes Connect Wallet.
