Although 2020 is only its third edition, Dubai’s Future Blockchain Summit already attracts more than 10,000 people across its two-day agenda. This year also draws 120 international speakers, 40 per cent of whom will speak in the region for the first time.
The event targets a dynamic mix of global governments, enterprises, start-ups, education institutions and individuals, and aims to move the UAE and the world into full scale Blockchain adoption.
A key focus of the 2020 edition is skills acquisition – putting Blockchain’s potential into practical deployment by accelerating capabilities and closing the skills gap among individuals, organisations and nations. This impetus will be delivered by the show’s new Genesis feature, ‘Blockchain’s new house of learning’, that provides delegates with certified courses and qualifications.
The Summit also features keynote speakers, a series of sector-focused tracks, interactive sessions, a ‘startup suite’, and the Business Hub: a one-stop-shop helping Blockchain-related companies to set up in this region, with direct access to representatives of free zones, legal firms, banks, business advisors and incubators.
