The premiere of metagonia will take place in Kitzbühel from October 2 to 8, 2023. At this festival, new technologies and creativity will be presented and celebrated. Metagonia - a place where people of all generations can discover, understand as well as use the digital future for themselves and also a place where new technologies are accessible and easy to understand for everyone.

New event format in the Gamsstadt
The aim of metagonia is to promote the digital capabilities of our society by demystifying new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence or Web 3.0.
"Kitzbühel already has AI in its name - with the new event format between avatars and avant-garde, blockchain and mountain world, crypto and cocktails, white sausage and Web3, we demystify the digital future and create a real-life access to modern technology and creativity for all generations," says Peter Becke, president of the organizing committee.
