Calling all creators and NFT enthusiasts! It’s time to celebrate the future of creativity, while building it at the same time.
Samsung is inviting members of the Web 3.0 community to participate in an entirely new form of self-expression at 837/NEXT during NFT.NYC. To celebrate and cultivate a community of pioneers in this space, we will host daily events at our flagship Samsung 837 location in New York City, as well as in the metaverse at Samsung 837X and on our newly introduced Discord server.
From June 20-23, Samsung will provide insight into the future of innovation, sustainability, customization and connectivity with access to emerging technology partners and interactive discussions. We will host panels, podcasts, performances and more throughout the week alongside dozens of exciting partners and special guests to encourage boundary-breaking self-expression and customization.
