Blockchain PR in collaboration with the Swedish Blockchain Association is attending the event.

Following on from a successful conference in Barcelona in 2018, the European Blockchain Convention (EBC) is landing in Copenhagen on May 20th as the first international conference in the Nordic Countries dedicated to the Blockchain Industry. The event will bring together over 400 industry leaders, business decision makers, tech innovators and investors from all around the world.

Over 35 visionary speakers will address the challenges and opportunities of Blockchain Technology in Denmark’s four main sectors: Finance, Public Sector, Healthcare and Shipping. The convention, which aims to be a meeting place for all industry leaders, investors, developers, regulators, lawyers and entrepreneurs, is intended for both management profiles as well as technical profiles.

The EBC was born in Barcelona last year to become the leading Blockchain Conference for Business in Europe: “We want to contribute to the development of the ecosystem by facilitating the connection between startups, investors and corporations. Adding the Copenhagen Edition to our platform strengthens the connection between the north and the south of Europe, which is essential if we want European Startups to be able to compete with the American ones or the Asian ones”, stressed Victoria Gago, Co-Founder of the EBC (picture).

Daniel Salmerón, Co-founder of the conference, highlights that Copenhagen was chosen to host the EBC because it is currently one of the biggest tech hubs in Europe and because it has the potential to become a global leader in Blockchain. “Although we are planning to organize more editions in other European capitals, we would like Barcelona and Copenhagen to host at least one edition of the EBC every year.”

The welcome address will be held by Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard, Mayor of Employment and Integration in Copenhagen since 2018.

Speakers on stage will include representatives from EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum, World Economic Forum, Ripple, Maersk, Danmarks Nationalbank, Trustworks, Danske Bank, IBM, ING, Bank of England, IMF, IOTA, MakerDAO, University of Copenhagen, PwC, Distributed Labs, Swiss National Bank and many more.

The event is an exceptional opportunity to connect with industry-leading experts and innovative tech start-ups within the booming Blockchain space in the Nordic countries and in Europe.

The Stockholm Blockchain Forum taking place on April 11th has announced a stellar show in April with the headlining speakers Ivan Liljeqvist, Taavi Rõivas and Cherie Aimee. Exhibitors include AE, Caledo, Friend, CryptoSalary and ShellPay. The seats for the conference are now almost sold out.

On the 11th of April, Techbook is organising the first Stockholm Blockchain Forum at the Stockholm International Affairs in Älvsjö. The event is bringing together blockchain experts from across the globe to network, forge new business relationships and educate traditional industries on how to implement blockchain technologies. The event is designed along the lines of an online forum brought into a physical space, a concept championed by the former CEO of Optimizer Invest, Carla Maree Vella, who is appointed Director of Content for the event.

“What we are trying to do is to play a bit on the word ‘forum’. As we know in the world of the interwebs, a forum is where people communicate and share information and thoughts. A lot of the conferences I visited last year were very much one-way communication-style. The idea here is to be able to not only to listen to panels and keynotes, but to strategically involve delegates in the discussions through structured networking events and specialised exercises to pull questions out of the audience and have an expert panel discuss those topics,” says Carla Maree Vella.

The Stockholm Blockchain Forum has gathered a number of key players in the Swedish blockchain scene to take part, including companies and organisations such as SweBlocks Academy, Swedish Blockchain Association, ChromaWay, DGOV Foundation, inblockio, Safello, Tokenine, Bitbay, BTCX, ZBX, EOS SW/EDEN, and Flype.

The speaker line-up includes prominent names such as Ivan Liljeqvist, world-famous YouTuber under the name Ivan on Tech; Taavi Rõivas, Former Prime Minister of Estonia; and Cherie Aimée, ranked as the sixth most influential woman in blockchain across the globe.

The agenda of the one-day conference features the topics Regulation, DAOs and Decentralized Governance, Banking and Blockchain, Centralised vs Decentralized Exchanges, Banking Today and the Future Token Economy, a comprehensive Q&A session where the audience can engage experts on stage for any queries on blockchain use cases, as well as a number of Thought Leader interviews.

Delegates are expected to learn how blockchain can be implemented into particular business cases, in what ways it can be used to enhance customer and supplier relationships, ROI and operational efficiency, as well as the current status of the technology, regulation, feasibility of adoption and integration requirements. The day will also include a session on how tokenisation of assets can be realised in Sweden in accordance with the current financial regulations.

Delegates are suggested to reserve their seats quickly as the organisers are running out of available tickets with less than 50 seats remaining. The conference is sharing its expo floor with four other conferences and exhibitors can benefit from hundreds of key decision makers under one roof. The forum is sponsored by the exhibitors AE, Caledo, Friend, CryptoSalary and ShellPay. The Stockholm Blockchain Forum is a must-go for anyone who wish to dive deeper into the actual use cases of blockchain and network with C-Suite professionals as well as some of the most innovative start-ups in the field.
