The first edition of Next Block Expo will be held in Berlin on Nov. 23 and 24, 2022 with more than 5,000 attendees. In four months from now, the Berlin Station will be the most important place in the European blockchain map, linking together the most important names in the industry.

“We are bringing founders, investors and blockchain experts together to redefine and discover Web3’s future,” said Next Block Expo co-founder Tom Kopera.

Along with the 5,000 in-person attendees, another 10,000 will be watching online. The venue has ample space to host more than 100 exhibitors and sponsors, while everyone will get the chance to listen to more than 50 top blockchain speakers.

Next Block Expo is the biggest blockchain festival in Europe dedicated to Web3 startups, no matter the stage of development. The event brings together founders, angel and retail investors, venture capital firms, developers and software houses, and all kinds of industry experts.

There will be six types of events to attend. The most influential people in the blockchain space will share their visions about Web3 from the main stage in the form of presentations, while round tables will provide an opportunity to understand different perspectives from specialists and experts. During Workshops, experts will share their insight and knowledge with participants. All exhibitors will be able to submit their projects to the pitch contest, where the best startups will be selected by experts. Hackathons are also planned for hardcore developers who want to learn hands-on, as well as side events organized directly by startups for their communities.

The conference will be divided into six content tracks: 

  • DeFi
  • Blockchain gaming
  • Metaverse/NFTs
  • Scaling and infrastructure 
  • Web3 discovery 
  • Fundraising and investing

“It is a unique opportunity to either find partners for your project, talk to investors and venture capital firms, see what is ‘hyped’ and maybe find the next big thing to invest into,” said Kopera. “But most importantly, we want to focus on the future of Web3 — we are witnessing a new economy that is a combination of what Web3 already created, and now traditional sectors are jumping in. So let’s discuss, brainstorm and share our vision of the future.”

Next Block Expo is an extension of a previous event series held under the name Cryptocurrency World Expo over the last six years.
