'Energize' Metaverse Book Launch
- Simon Alexander Ong
27 May 2022
Amazon top-seller author, Simon Alexander Ong hosted his first ever metaverse book launch on xSpaces for his new book ' Energize'.
It was a new and unique experience for not only himself but his audiences who joined from around the globe! Simon communicated and had close interactions with his readers and audience in sharing his experiences in writing the book. There was also a Q&A and photo session!
Simon had a truly wonderful time connecting with his readers through his VR headset, which mimicked his real-time gestures, enhancing the user experience for the audience.
With the support of TigerChi, attendees received a special NFT collectible for attending the event. Some were lucky to receive signed copies of his new book!
What People Said
This was definitely a special occasion and it certainly made me r realize we'll be seeing a lot more of this in the future. It certainly beats video or live stream based presentations! It might even rival real life events simply because of the freedom of movement in the space and level of interaction and engagement possible with the audience. Unforgettable!

What an experience!
Just taken off my Oculus VR headst from what was a truly immersive moment at one of the world's first metaverse book launches for my new book Energize.
I had the opportunity to connect with people from Australia, Dubai, Italy, UK, Sweden, Singapore, Spain and more. And all within the same room together.
Truly excited about the potential within this space going forward.

It's always exciting to experiment with new ways to reach audiences. Yes, I did get stuck behind a post plant for a while(!) but it was amazing to be talking about books and ideas in a totally new space!
Had a lot of fun in the metaverse this morning attending the book launch of Simon Alexander Ong through xSpaces! I'm looking forward to more events of this type in the future, with these technologies that allow bringing different minds from all corners of the world in the "same room".
Blockchain BDM & Podcast Host
It was a beautiful setting, my kind of space, in the middle of a forest, together with people from many countries in the "same room". At one point, Simon was standing right in front of me! So thrilled to have the opportunity to experience this.
