TAMPA, FL, October 25 — Tampa’s Innovation Partnership !p and urban community-focused, blockchain and metaverse developer, blockXblock.dao, have just announced a Blockchain, Crypto, NFT, and Immersive Arts & Tech After Party is happening in Tampa’s Uptown at LOOK Dine-In Cinemas on level 2 in Theater No. 10 on October 28th at 7:30pm, right after Tampa !p’s 10th Annual Innovation Gathering, which is being held downstairs in the west wing of the University Mall in Tampa’s Uptown Community & Innovation Quarter (“Uptown”).
This will be the first time Tampa gets to experience an event in the Kollidescope: A Chain of Events production series.

The 1.4 million square foot University Mall facility, now fully functioning as a resilient community innovation incubator and tech accelerator, on target to welcome over 3.5 million visitors in 2021, is being transformed before our very eyes into a $1.5 billion, 7.25 million square foot, urban live-work-play, Arts & Sciences Research Playground and City Center!
This Kollidescope event is a celebration and networking experience for innovators and investors in a broad range of specialties including Blockchain, Crypto, NFTs, Esports, AI, Machine Learning, AR, XR, VR, and Immersive Arts & Tech comprising the foundational building blocks of the Metaverse. This Kollidescope experience is not all about the technology, it’s about you, and it will also serve as a precursor to the upcoming season of exciting blockchain events and happenings in Tampa Bay.
Capacity is limited, so reserve your tickets in advance for $25 on EventBrite or pay $40 at the door subject to availability. Parking is free. Tickets may be purchased at the EventBrite Ticketing Page for Kollidescope: A LOOK into the RITHMverse.
