Following the successful BlockShow Europe 2018 event in Germany, Cointelegraph has announced BlockShow Americas 2018.
The two-day show, which is the very first to be held in the United States, will take place on August 20-21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at The Venetian.
A show for the diary
Las Vegas has quickly gained a reputation as the place for FinTech and blockchain events, with more taking place in the city each year.
With BlockShow Americas looking to bring the most exciting applications, latest sensations, and high-quality content, this show seems like one for the diary of any blockchain or crypto enthusiast.
Included at the Vegas show this month are all-day networking opportunities, the BlockShow Oscar startup competition, and the return of the BlockShow Ratings and People Choice awards.
The BlockShow event in Germany was attended by more than 3,000 people, with over 90 projects on show at the conference exhibition, and over 100 organizations and companies showing their support.
Organizers are claiming that the numbers and scale of BlockShow Americas will be no different.
Experts in attendance
With some pretty in-depth coverage from global media powerhouses such as Forbes, VentureBeat, BuzzFeed and many others, the innovation, promising projects and experts who will be in attendance promises to keep the crowd enthralled.
Talking about the European BlockShow event, Rachel Wolfson of Forbes commented –
“I’m really impressed with the European crypto conference scene. This conference brought a lot of people together. Coming from San Francisco, it is really refreshing to see. It is exciting.”
As well as showcasing some of the most promising projects, BlockShow Americas have promised some brand new features that they insist will offer attendees even more of a memorable experience.
At the moment they’re keeping those new features firmly under wraps! News and updates are due soon though!
100 recognized speakers scheduled
As of writing, there are over 100 internationally recognized speakers and experts due to attend the BlockShow Americas event this month, ranging from experts in banking, governmental institutions, and numerous other global industries.
We’ll be seeing single speeches, panel sessions, and discussions, all promising to deliver high-quality professional insights and knowledge.
BlockShow Americas will feature the traditional startup competition, which is dedicated to discovering and rewarding the most promising blockchain-powered startups out there, with previous winners being rewarded with a total of roughly $90,000.
The host of the CNBC Crypto Trader Show Ran Neuner said that “I think the special part of BlockShow is that it is one of the biggest shows l have been to in Europe in a place like Berlin, the biggest hub for blockchain.
The second thing that I really liked about the show is the structure, the layout. There were two rooms for talks, a VIP room, a media room, a food room, and a networking room. That is not usually what happens at shows. We also had amazing speakers like Bobby Lee, Benny Giang, and Jimmy Wales.”
