The Blockchain Tech Summit
The agenda for Blockchain Tech Summit seems to be broken up into two sections: Part 1 will be held during the morning from 8 AM to 12 PM on the main stage featuring panels and keynotes. Parts 2 and 3 will occur simultaneously from 1 PM to 6 PM: there will be panels and speakers on the main stage, but there will also be off-stage workshop meetings, Q/A sessions, and round-table discussions.
More information about Blockchain Tech Summit can be found on their eventbrite page, where you can also purchase tickets to attend the event yourself.
Going To Blockchain Tech Summit 2018
The atmosphere of the event wasn't like any event I went to before...how do I put this...It was very small and tight knit.
The room doesn't have many people, so every member of the audience matters. And when the speakers speak, it's not like they're saying a speech in front of some large audience, it's in front of a group of peers, so they're really speaking with you like at a small dinner party moreso than talking "at you" like most events/speeches. It was very cool.
The event had a combination of single speakers and panel discussions. Both were pretty interesting. I won't go into detail about the speeches themselves, but the content was usually about the speaker's experience running a blockchain company, including tips for what worked and what didn't, discussions about how to handle various non-business aspects of blockchain (like media, public perception, legal stuff), talks about how to make blockchain succeed and what needed to be done in the future, and also present opinions of blockchain and where blockchain will trend in the future.
The speakers themselves were all people high up on the corporate ladder for big companies involved with blockchain. And there were people from various sections, from the US government, to startups, to bigger companies, from various departments such as IT and even legal teams. Networking with the people at the event seemed VERY useful.
