Michael Zakkour, Founder, 5 NEW DIGITAL on Immersive Commerce (Hint – It’s the Metaverse)

On today’s episode Michael Zakkour, Founder, 5 New Digital stops by to talk about his view of Immersive Commerce. What is Immersive Commerce?

They really need to be analyzed independently while being collected in one technology bucket for forecasting purposes. Going forward I'll use Immersive Commerce and Metaverse interchangably.
