“Vket Real 2024 Summer” website:

The new key visual by popular illustrator lack is complete!

The key visual for this issue was created by "lack" ( ), a popular illustrator who works on illustrations and character designs for a wide range of genres, including trading card games, social games, light novels, and VTubers.

The key visual for this event was created by combining an illustration by lack with the theme of "festivals" with 3D avatar images and real-life photos collected from Vket users. More than 800 people applied for the avatar standing image contest, which is twice as many as the last time. The avatar images submitted will also be used for decorations at future events.

The Osaka venue has been decided, and a Parareal Creator exhibition venue has been added to Akihabara!

It was previously announced that Vket Real will be held in the Osaka area as the first event outside of Tokyo, and the venue has now been decided to be Namba Midosuji Hall. A total of 37 virtual (parallel world) and real (real world) parareal creators will exhibit booths at the venue, which is conveniently located directly connected to Namba Station on the subway, over the two days. In addition, a large-scale offline meetup is also planned at the venue.

In the Akihabara area, "TKP Garden City PREMIUM Akihabara" has been added as a new creator exhibition venue. A total of 66 Parareal creators will exhibit booths at this venue over the two days.

[About Virtual Market (commonly known as Vket)]

The world's largest virtual event where 3D items such as avatars, as well as real products such as clothes, electronic devices, and food and drink, can be bought and sold. Held twice a year since 2018, it has attracted more than 1.2 million visitors from around the world each time, and is a pioneering event in the metaverse that has earned a Guinness World Record™*. In addition to buying and selling products, the event also offers immersive "experiences" that are unique to the virtual world, such as riding vehicles, receiving customer service, and participating in live music. Many people participate in the event, both as a place for companies to promote their new services and for commerce, and as a place for creators to freely express their creativity.

*Recognized by the Guinness World Records™ as the largest number of booths at a virtual reality market event.

[What is Vket Real?]

This is a real event originating from the Virtual Market where anyone can easily experience the latest metaverse and XR technology. From the metaverse to the real, from the real to the metaverse. We will hold the first event in 2023 with the desire to provide a two-way solution and deliver fun, convenience, and excitement that transcends the boundaries between virtual and real, and will hold it twice a year in line with the Virtual Market period. At Vket Real, even those without VR equipment or specialized knowledge can easily experience metaverse and XR content at the local venue. In addition, we will provide content that allows you to participate in the virtual world as an avatar, and we aim to create a world where you can "live as you like" through Vket Real.
