Virtual Worlds 2008 is where leading media; consumer entertainment, youth brands and agencies come to understand how to utilize their intellectual property using virtual worlds.
Entertainment brands and youth-oriented companies are increasingly integrating virtual worlds into their product mix. Forward thinking brand advertisers and agencies are aligning themselves with high-quality virtual worlds franchises in order to further engage consumers.
The multi-talented Whaley, Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer of Monogram Virtua Entertainment and Program Director of Urban Network Magazine’s two online radio stations (http://urbannetwork.com) attended the two-day conference, educating himself with the numerous opportunities that were presented in the Virtual World communities. Whaley brings a wealth of knowledge, and vast resources from the entertainment community, and is integrating the Urban entertainment market in the Virtual Space. Artists will be able to sell virtual CDs to a global audience of virtual visitors. No longer do they have to be limited to appearing in front of a live physical audience, but can appear at the same time for a virtual worldwide audience and sell to an ever growing database. Whaley remarks, "We are ecstatic about the opportunities that were presented at the 2008 Virtual Worlds Conference, be in the forefront of new technology, and having the ability to open the virtual mind up to a whole new audience that includes some of the greatest artistic minds in music today.”
