The world’s leading blockchain conference and exhibition, Blockchain Expo, arrives in California for the inaugural North America event this fall.
Blockchain Expo North America will take place in the Santa Clara Convention Center, right in the heart of Silicon Valley, between 29-30 November 2017. The setting is perfect as the event will see some of the heaviest hitters in the blockchain space explore how the technology is disrupting the established order in sectors as diverse as healthcare, real estate, energy and government services.
Hyperledger, R3, Ripple and Lisk are long term event partners collaborating with Blockchain Expo to showcase their offerings and deliver a wide range of options in which to develop your own distributed ledger.
The event is perfect for industry members, budding start-ups and entrepreneurs, as well as anyone with an interest in one of most hotly anticipated technological developments of the last few decades.
The developments in blockchain are so exciting and we want to cover as much as possible. With an ever-growing number of innovative companies popping up in nearly every sector imaginable, there is a lot to talk about. The event is two days of high level content, delivered by expert speakers, in two main areas:
Blockchain for Industry will take a look at the variety of platforms and services that have sprung up in recent years and their impact on a range of business sectors.
Blockchain Technologies is for those who want to know more about the evolution of blockchain and its applications. We focus on the launches and trials that are taking place as well as the vast opportunities that the technology presents.
