Taking blockchain mainstream
Taking blockchain mainstream, Blockchain Live is back and will be returning to London Olympia on 25th September as a festival of blockchain education. A one-day event, packed with engaging, thought-provoking and quality content, this year Blockchain Live will be moving away from the traditional exhibition model, into a ground-breaking festival of content and collaboration.
This festival of education will not only be inclusive for everyone, as well as enable exhibitors and sponsors to network with a more targeted, tailored audience, but introduces all new content stages, immersive education features and unique networking concepts.
Unlike a lot of other blockchain events, Blockchain Live does not dilute its content with co-located technology shows, or overly crypto-focused content. Instead Blockchain Live focuses solely on the business potential of blockchain & DLT, encouraging grown-up conversations and debate on the topic of blockchain technology, whilst cutting through the hype and challenging the critics to educate, upskill and drive long-term thinking on the strategic benefit for businesses, governments and society.
The festivalisation of the event will deliver an open plan educational and networking environment, allowing for more hands-on learning, meaningful discussion and face-to-face meetings between attendees, exhibitors and sponsors, driving an honest discussion on the challenges and benefits associated with the technology’s adoption.
Industry experts are now joining the speaker line-up including blockchain expert, author and co-founder of the Blockchain Research Institute (BRI), Don Tapscott and Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Margot James MP. BRI have partnered with Blockchain Live to bring a syllabus of global expertise and business insight to the UK, whilst further-cementing Blockchain Live as a leading authority on blockchain for business.
Don Tapscott, who will be delivering a keynote address on the Headliner’s Stage, said: “Blockchain technology is fundamentally transforming the way business, governments, and individuals interact with one another. Understanding blockchain technology is crucial to succeeding in the next era of digital disruption and Blockchain Live, the festival of education, is paving the way to help businesses move beyond proof of concept to real-world solutions.”
Sponsors, exhibitors and speakers will showcase the many benefits and capabilities of taking blockchain mainstream with five feature stages, hosting market-leading quality content from the forefront of industry and blockchain innovation: Blockchain Live Headliner’s Stage, Tech Connect Stage, Future Finance Stage, GovChain Stage and Crypto Impact Stage.
Blockchain live also introduces four immersive education features including the Developers Den, Blockchain in Action, Training Studio and Solutions Showcase. Furthermore, the event will have several new features including live debates, expert seminars, connections zone and live bar.
With more speakers and exhibitors to be announced in the coming weeks, Blockchain Live are spearheading the conversation on mass blockchain adoption through bringing the whole blockchain ecosystem together under one roof.
James Samuel, Portfolio Director at Blockchain Live said: “Blockchain Live is very excited to be back once again in London – the hub for frontier technologies, enterprise, investors and industry. We have purposely designed this year’s event to centre around a festival of content theme and the team have been exceptionally busy to provide this content in a variety of opportunities. Be it from our sponsors, exhibitors and speakers featuring across our five feature stages or our immersive educational features, it is safe to say Blockchain Live is going to be an action-packed networking and content filled experience.
