Chief Executive David Whelan says: ‘After a strong 2022 in terms of revenue growth, we are delighted that this has continued into the current financial year, where we have had an excellent start to 2023. Engage Link is attracting huge interest, and the Fatboy Slim concert was both well reviewed and acted as an incredible demonstration of what can be achieved in Engage Link. We are adding more functionality all the time and have already developed and demonstrated the integration of artificial intelligence into the platform working with Chat GPT and other Open AI protocols. We expect to have AI client offerings later this year, which will completely transform how users communicate, interact and build within the metaverse.’
