INVNT GROUP® to launch bzar - Xperience Shopping™ An “always on” 24/7/365 global, immersive metaverse connecting brands, consumers, experiences, content, and creators through gamification
New York, NY, Sept. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Launching this November, bzar is a patent pending, disruptive, immersive, metaverse leveraging Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, the most powerful real-time 3D creation tool, and partnering with SURREAL Events, a leading developer of multiplayer virtual experiences in Unreal. With multiplayer capabilities and gamified elements blended with virtual retail experiences or “brand worlds”, bzar offers brand safe environments, fosters brand love, and creates instantaneous transaction results.
Heavily rooted in entertainment, gaming, and celebrity brand sectors – allowing members to play and shop, providing an engaging shorthand between the influencer to consumer check out – bzar is a new paradigm for shareable, fun, and exciting shopping experiences.
bzar, pioneered by Scott Cullather, Co-founder and CEO of [INVNT GROUP] and Founder and CEO of bzar, will launch with a select group of brands that will debut their “brand worlds” in the bzar metaverse. bzar stands for a world which holds no limitations to creativity, love, inclusivity, fun, excitement, and the desire to connect with each other. Unbound by the restrictions of physical space, time, and distance, bzar invites modern brands to create their own brand worlds, and to tell their stories with imagination establishing an emotional connection between their brand and their most important consumers – Millennials and Gen Z.
Members create custom avatars equipped to discover, play, try on, and shop exclusive digital and physical products. Along with the ability to attend interactive live performances with virtually anyone in the entire bzar metaverse.
“We have been developing the bzar metaverse for over 18 months. When Mark Zuckerberg joins the narrative, you know you are onto something big. Our ideas of community start with people. Modern global consumers and brands want more than four walls and to scroll endlessly over flat boring images of products - which is what today’s brick and mortar, e-comm and omni-channel platforms offer. Today, consumers and brands demand experience and innovation. bzar reimagines retail and experiential spaces in unimaginable virtual worlds, that help power modern, world-class brands. By bringing all those communities together, we hope to build the most powerful and exciting collective of brands, culture-shakers and makers on the planet.” Scott Cullather, Founder and CEO, bzar
bzar speaks to a conscious consumer - they are authenticity focused and seek to be part of a community of firsts. Community is not created by bzar, it meets at bzar – empowering the audience to create the community and the culture.
bzar powers brands who seek to cultivate communities of the future.
