Event Overview

The Goal Of This Event

Cross-industry leaders will come together in dialogue about current and future projects using blockchain technologies, in the spirit of innovation. Our summit themes have been identified to pick up on the most critical issues and opportunities in blockchain for business: 

  • Beyond the hype: what are the most useful zones of disruption and innovation for enterprises?
  • Harnessing the possibilities: solving business problems with the use of blockchain technologies
  • Adopting blockchain business models: understanding and mitigating risks
  • Smart contracts and the enterprise: legal implications, contract management, encrypted or open?
  • Navigating legal waters: how to address the regulatory and compliance challenges posed by blockchain
  • The blockchain professional of the future: challenges and opportunities
  • Visualising a blockchain business world: what will it look like across industries and markets?

Why a summit on blockchain innovations and why now? 

Leadership now means coping with a growing role, facing new demands of visibility into your operations, expanded compliance and privacy responsibilities, plus increasing expectations from customers regarding data protection and privacy. More and more large businesses are realising they need to adopt new approaches to deal with these new expectations, and there’s no better time to think outside the box with blockchain.

Today’s leaders need to be equipped with the knowledge, insights and inspiration to conquer business challenges and enable intelligent decision-making. There is the need to understand the effects of blockchain as a disruptor, and to consider what the shape of these new ecosystem infrastructures and markets will be. But what is the value of distributed ledger technology for business? How can blockchain reduce costs and increase enterprise efficiency? Can disruptive technologies really be adopted seamlessly alongside legacy systems?

This is your invitation to inspiring talks to help you explore the possibilities and opportunities of blockchain technology for business. Discover ways to get innovative blockchain ideas off the ground, tackling old challenges with new technology and accessing some of the myriad possibilities blockchain offers. Cultivate a startup mentality that’s creative and dynamic from within your leadership role, evolving your existing processes to incorporate new approaches and giving you the freedom to test out and pilot new ideas.

Join for engaging discussions with speakers who have piloted blockchain projects and find out how you could turn information into value, doing all the same things you used to do but faster, cheaper and more securely. Hear from leaders who have been there, tried that and are shaping the future of their industries. Register now!
