Significantly, 99% of Filipino business professionals surveyed recognize the value of virtual meetings, and 89% would participate in work meetings in the metaverse versus existing video conferencing tools.

Forty-four percent of those surveyed also believe that virtual meetings are less expensive than in-person meetings.
