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.
