After the great success of BlockShow Europe 2017, the Cointelegraph Events team set their eyes on Asia having ensured the support of the key opinion leaders in the Blockchain community and having tested in Munich their trademark platform for showcasing Blockchain solutions. The team’s aspiration is to exhibit the industry’s most groundbreaking solutions and bring businesses together with the Blockchain.
Charlie Shrem, Founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, BizDev at Changelly, says:
“BlockShow is really great. I’ve been to a bunch of events in the US and this was my ﬁrst trip outside of the US in the last four years and had to pick a good event. Cointelegraph is not new to the industry, you guys have been around for many years. So it’s not like there are a few events funded by these new entities that do not really understand what the vision was. Of course, you have to know where you came from to know where you are going. So it is a great choice for you guys to organize the BlockShow 2017. It was super awesome and exciting.”
Blockchain technology is developing incredibly fast, and this year we have already seen a great number of its use cases launched by various industries. The Blockchain implementation will only continue and accelerate as more and more research is done, more and more pilot projects are scheduled, and more and more companies give up their crypto skepticism to enjoy the benefits of this disruptive technology and type of economy.
BlockShow Asia 2017 powered by Cointelegraph, which is to take place on November 29th - 30th, 2017 in Singapore, will reveal genuine Blockchain sensations, including startups running or planning their ICOs, ambitious new projects, established companies looking to utilize the Blockchain and those already trying to do it. The conference is designed to provide an exclusive look into the most exciting Blockchain ideas as well as inspiration to get into the Blockchain world.
BlockShow Asia in Singapore
As the Cointelegraph Events team explain, Singapore was selected as a prime location for the conference since the country had taken many steps to implement Blockchain technology. It will also provide a melting pot of cultures, exquisite food and charming neighborhoods to fuel unforgettable moments.
Currently, Singapore’s central bank will implement a tokenized version of the Singapore dollar (SGD) on an Ethereum-based Blockchain. While, the IBM Center for Blockchain Innovation has nourished local talent by working with government authorities, academics and other industries to make Singapore a pioneer in fintech innovation.
BlockShow Asia will unveil 1000+ attendees, 50+ speakers, 40+ exhibitors along with many startups, companies from across the globe, and much more. The program will be packed with showcases, exhibitions, a competition and an inspiring environment to launch a new product or fundraising campaign. A startup competition is created specifically to allow emerging startups to introduce their solutions by delivering a pitch to compete for the main prize. In addition, a Business Networking Lounge will be provided, which is a unique networking zone with mobile application scheduling.
Paolo Tasca, Executive Director at UCL Center for Blockchain Technologies, tells Cointelegraph:
“I personally think that, in the end, it really turned out to be a great show about Blockchain, and you were great in getting everyone in the right mood. Both speakers and attendees came from a variety of backgrounds, which had undoubtedly enriched the conference and it also allowed precious occasions for networking. The organization was absolutely efﬁcient, as well. I pay my compliments for your success and I can just provide a sincere positive feedback about BlockShow Europe 2017.”
