Sebastian Borget – COO of The Sandbox gaming virtual world is awarded ‘Leader on Tourism’ by World Tourism Forum Institute
Bulut BAĞCI – The President of World Tourism Forum Institute delivered ‘Leader on Tourism for 2022’ award to Mr. Sebastian Borget in Paris.
Part virtual real estate, part amusement park, The Sandbox is a metaverse game platform that exists as a continuous shared digital space where worlds and heroes collide to make magic. The decentralized virtual world has partnered with major IPs and brands from around the globe, including Warner Music Group, Ubisoft, The Rabbids, Gucci Vault, The Walking Dead, Snoop Dogg, Adidas, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Richie Hawtin, The Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari, ZEPETO, CryptoKitties, and more. In The Sandbox, players can experience different cultures, locations, and activities – from Hong Kong to Snoop Dogg’s mansion in LA to fantastic worlds that exist only in imagination.
Bulut Bağcı of World Tourism Forum Institute said ‘We delivered this award to the Heads of States from 2015 to 2021 and this year with our executive board we decided to deliver a private sector figure. The Sandbox game is one of the game changers in the open metaverse and we desire that all tourism industries must be part of this metaverse ecosystem. Sebastian and his team are making huge efforts to reinvigorate the industry. As WTFI, we are always standing with the new technologies and ready to support them.’
