Designed for senior executives from across industries, the APAC Blockchain Conference will feature a full day plenary followed by two full day streamed sessions: Banking and Finance or Government, Smart Contracts and Industry.

Both streams are case-study led, and will examine what some of the most innovative organisations are doing to develop, implement and adopt blockchain technologies in their organisations as well as looking at some of the world’s leading Blockchain start-ups.

The event aims to look beyond the hype and find a way to make blockchain technology a commercial reality. To do this, captains of industry leading the change, world leading project heads, innovative start-ups and regulators will gather in the one place to share their knowledge and experiences.
