Topgolf the modern golf entertainment leader, announced today that construction efforts are underway in Mobile, Alabama to bring its family-friendly technology-enabled experience to the city.

"We are thrilled for the opportunity to be part of the city's growing culture and excited to contribute another way for locals to have fun," said Topgolf Chief Development Officer Chris Callaway . "The warm welcome we received as we began construction efforts has been second to none, and we're looking forward to enabling communities in and around Mobile to come play around."

At Topgolf Mobile, the "not golf" is just as much fun as the "golf." For example:

Golf: The future two-level venue will feature 60 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays to ensure maximum Player comfort no matter the time of year. Players of all ages will be able to experience the sport in a new way thanks to the brand's signature, technology-driven point-scoring golf games. With the help of Topgolf's Toptracer ball-tracking technology – which traces each ball's flight path, distance and more – Players will be able to play interactive games like Angry Birds . In addition to the signature gameplay, Topgolf Mobile will feature a nine-hole mini-golf course to amplify the golfing fun.

Not Golf: With an energetic and fun environment, Topgolf Mobile will offer Players access to a full-service restaurant with chef-inspired menu items, top-shelf drinks, music and year-round family-friendly programming. On top of that, Topgolf Mobile's private event spaces will be the perfect place to host any occasion – from business meetings to bachelor parties.

"At the City of Mobile , our team is always working to bring visitors into Mobile and provide attractions and entertainment for Mobilians to enjoy: Topgolf does both," Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson said . "We are excited the project has broken ground, and I look forward to teeing off soon."

Alongside entertainment, Topgolf Mobile will create roughly 150 full- and part-time jobs, and the opportunity for future Topgolf Playmakers (Associates) to grow their careers, work in a unique culture-first environment and be part of a company that welcomes everyone as they are.

"We're pleased with the progress Topgolf is making on its 60-bay venue near the intersection of I-65 and I-10 in Mobile ," said Mobile County Commission President Connie Hudson . "The Mobile County Commission looks forward to its opening, not only for the anticipated impact of the multimillion dollar capital investment in drawing visitors to our region, but for the construction jobs and new hospitality and management jobs required for facility operations."

Until the venue is complete, Players can enjoy the tech-enabled fun and tasty food and beverages at the two existing Topgolf venues in Alabama Topgolf Birmingham and Topgolf Huntsville .

"Breaking ground on the highly anticipated Topgolf project is a major milestone for Mobile and a testament to our city and county's commitment to attracting top-tier development and a vibrant future," said Mobile Chamber President and CEO Bradley Byrne . "We're thrilled to see this project come to fruition and can't wait for its expected opening later this year."

VisitBritain releases online accent game using AI voice technology to inspire visitors to 'See Things Differently'

National tourism agency VisitBritain has today launched an online game as part of its new multi-million pound international campaign in Canada for 2023 to drive tourism to Britain .

The campaign, called Fake (Br)it Till You Make It , highlights the richness of Britain's regional diversity. A new online game on VisitBritain's consumer website uses machine learning, testing players as they have a go at mastering a variety of accents from across Britain , and then sharing links with destination information to drive bookings. Participants in the game are encouraged to share their results on social media and challenge their friends using the hashtag #FakeBritChallenge.

The multi-media marketing campaign uses a mix of on- and-offline channels including content across social media, influencers, custom content partners, digital display and audio advertising, driving online traffic to
a landing page on VisitBritain.com with ideas and links to activities, attractions and experiences. Branded content features a variety of local phrases alongside destination images, and a series of short films sees Brits sharing a warm welcome in local accents and dialects promoting their destinations, encouraging visitors to come and explore for themselves.

VisitBritain Executive Vice President, The Americas, Australia and New Zealand Paul Gauger said:

"Our priority is to harness the strong recovery and growth we have seen from Canada , and we are delighted to be running this dedicated and playful campaign, tapping into motivations to travel right now.

"This innovative game puts Britain's diversity front and centre, using modern technology to engage players, tell the story of our dynamic destinations and inspire Canadian visitors to discover more, stay longer and explore year-round."

The international GREAT Britain marketing campaign invites visitors to 'See Things Differently', showcasing Britain as a dynamic, diverse and exciting destination, packed full of activities to come and enjoy now, with a warm British welcome at its heart.

The campaign will also capture major events in 2023 including the Coronation of King Charles III and Liverpool hosting the Eurovision Song Contest , on behalf of Ukraine , both taking place in May, valuable opportunities to show Britain's welcome, creativity and ability to host events of the highest calibre.

The 'Fake (Br)it Till You Make It' campaign has been developed to play on the idea of shared language between Canada and Britain . VisitBritain's research shows that feelings of welcome and connection are top motivators for Canadian travellers in choosing a holiday destination, and the campaign builds on existing cultural ties by inviting visitors to learn more about the accents they have heard through British film and TV and by highlighting the personal connections and fun, unexpected experiences to be found on their next trip to Britain .

VisitBritain's 'See Things Differently' campaign is part of the UK Government's GREAT campaign .

Hadean to lead on gaming metaverse initiatives as Mythos Foundation Committee Chair

Award-winning metaverse startup, Hadean, is set to be one of five subcommittee chairs of the Mythos Foundation, the initiative aimed at decentralising and promoting Web3 gaming and esports projects. The company will spearhead funding and development for metaverse technologies and prototypes and help reduce barriers-to-entry for game developers.

Hadean To Lead Mythos Foundation Gaming Metaverse Initiatives

As the gaming industry moves to embrace a metaverse-ready mindset, Hadean is working with Mythical Games and the members of the Mythos Foundation to accelerate the development of cross-chain infrastructure that will allow deep integration of gaming communities and true interoperability between virtual worlds, leading to the seamless intersection of different games on-demand and in a single user experience.

With Mythical Games at the helm, the Mythos decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) aims to give gamers and developers a seat at the table and stir strategic projects to escalate the expansion of the Mythos ecosystem.

Subcommittee chairs will serve a one-year term and have been elected by token holders of the Mythos Token (MYTH), the fixed supply utility token used as the basis of a decentralised economy where anyone is empowered to participate and have a say.

Craig Beddis , Hadean CEO, said: "It is a great privilege for Hadean to be recognised as a leader at the bleeding edge of metaverse technology development by the Mythos ecosystem and to be appointed chair of the Foundation's subcommittee alongside other gaming industry heavy-hitters. The Mythos vision for a democratised gaming ecosystem is in perfect sync with our view of a decentralised metaverse, where gamers, developers and creators are able to actively participate in the value chain, and we look forward to playing our role in supporting this group of trailblazing industry partners."

John Linden , Mythical Games CEO said: "At the core of the Mythos Foundation is the belief that the next iteration of video games will be democratized to allow developers and players to actively participate in game economies through the Mythos ecosystem. With their heavy focus on delivering metaverse network technology, Hadean is championing this cause by providing the next generation of virtual worlds. I'm excited to see them help lead new technology initiatives as a subcommittee chair of the Mythos Foundation."

About the Mythos Foundation
