The Mishcon de Reya Blockchain Group were out in force at the Blockchain Expo 2019 this year. Hosted at Olympia, London, the Expo is the world's largest blockchain conference and exhibition, attracting speakers and delegates from around the world.
The tone of the conference was markedly different from the 2018 edition, with a noticeable move towards a solutions-focused, enterprise-based dialogue. An entire stage was dedicated to 'Blockchain for Business', and the 'Investors & Innovation Zone' featured discussions regarding blockchain-based start-ups aside from core cryptocurrency/token-based models.
One of our highlights was a panel on the governance and regulation in blockchain business networks chaired by Laura Bailey and as always, it was great to catch up with firm friends such as the team at StateZero Labs and Alpesh Doshi of Fintricity. The conference also allowed us to connect with industry participants from around the world, from jurisdictions ranging from the US to Malta and the Cayman Islands to Australia. A busy, productive and thoroughly enjoyable event!
The 2020 edition is already in the diary for 17-18 March 2020 – we look forward to seeing many of you there. You can find more information on the Blockchain Expo World Series website: https://www.blockchain-expo.com.
