The CMMC MetaCon is designed to bring together defense supply chain and cybersecurity thought leaders from across the globe to share their perspectives and experiences with attendees.

The CMMC Metaverse is the venue where the CMMC MetaCon will take place on November 14, 2023.

The CMMC Metaverse is publicly accessible to anyone, however, during the CMMC MetaCon a separate/cloned environment will be used for the event. This is so we can control access during the event.

During the CMMC MetaCon, attendees will either be within the CMMC MetaCon metaverse (Premium ticket holders) or will view the live event via Zoom (Standard ticket holders).

The public and CMMC MetaCon non-ticketholders will be able to access the public CMMC Metaverse.  During the CMMC MetaCon these visitors will be able to see the event but not hear it.  The one exception to this is when music is being played by DJ Stilo.

The CMMC Metaverse is publicly accessible to anyone, however, during the CMMC MetaCon a separate/cloned environment will be used for the event.  During the CMMC MetaCon attendees will either be within the CMMC MetaCon metaverse (Premium ticket holders) or will view the live event via Zoom (Standard ticket holders).

With that in mind, during the actual CMMC MetaCon Premium attendees will be granted access to the gated/controlled live event metaverse instance.  Premium attendees will also be entitled to one custom avatar, which will be created ahead of the conference based on photos and input from the Premium ticket holder.

During CMMC MetaCon, there will be speaker presentations and live entertainment.  Only paid ticket holders (Premium and Standard) will be able to view and hear all conference activities. Music from DJ Stilo will be heard across both the public and gated/controlled metaverse spaces.

Standard ticket holders will have full access to the public CMMC Metaverse and will be able to view and hear all activities occurring within the gated/controlled CMMC MetaCon metaverse space via a separate Zoom session, including all speaker presentations and live entertainment.

In summary, Premium ticket holders will be within the gated/controlled CMMC MetaCon metaverse with the speakers and will have their own unique avatar.  Standard ticket holders will have access to the publicly accessible CMMC Metaverse and have exclusive access to view the speaker presentations and live entertainment via Zoom.  The event live entertainment will be simulcast across all CMMC Metaverse spaces so Standard ticket holders will be able to explore and experience the public CMMC Metaverse while also viewing and listening in on the CMMC MetaCon activities.

CMMC MetaCon: 2023 educates attendees on global perspectives regarding cybersecurity in the context of a defense supply chain. This newfound information will allow attendees to better fortify themselves and their organizations against sophisticated threat actors and inform them on how to build greater resilience.

Yes. The CMMC MetaCon is hosted within the Spatial.io platform.  Spatial supports the Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headsets.

The CMMC MetaCon is hosted in the Spatial.io platform.  In addition to support for the Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headsets, Spatial also works on your phone with a full featured mobile app, as well as right on your desktop via their web app. Visit Spatial here for more information.

Since the CMMC MetaCon is hosted in the Spatial.io platform, we strongly encourage you to go here to learn more about the metaverse platform, how to setup a device (if using a virtual reality headset — not required to access the CMMC MetaCon), how to move around the metaverse, etc.

WEB:
Hold down the SHIFT key while your avatar is walking in order to run around!

Press the spacebar to jump. You jump farther while sprinting vs while walking.

MOBILE:
Rotate your device into landscape mode to access the joystick and jump controls.

Now you can enter selfie mode on mobile by rotating your camera POV (point of view) around your avatar.

HMD:
While using Spatial in VR, the left hand controller joystick now serves as a means to control smooth locomotion throughout a space.

The right hand controller joystick still serves as a means to teleport throughout the space if you don’t want to use locomotion.

You can now take advantage of moving platforms in VR too!! Hop on one and go for a ride.

Press the ‘A’ button on your right hand controller to jump in VR!

Simply put, an avatar is a digital representation of you while in the metaverse. But, there’s no reason you needs to be the everyday you! An avatar allows you to extend your inner whatever to truly express your personality.

We recommend you check out this page to learn more about creating an avatar BEFORE you attend the CMMC MetaCon!

If you want to experience the most exciting immersion then you definitely need to order a Meta Quest or Meta Quest 2 as soon as possible and spend some time getting comfortable using it.

Of course, you’ll want an avatar to represent yourself in the metaverse and that can take a bit of time if you want to really explore the vast amount of creative options available to represent the digital you!
