Welcome to an exciting new digital event

How many times you attended a conference on blockchain just to listen to one or two presentations that were important to you, and then spend the rest of the time working remotely on your smartphone?
How much did it cost in travel, hotel, local transportation to be there? Was it really worthwhile?
Well, yes, if that was the only opportunity to get to listen senior enterprise executives.
But were you able to listen to executives of the top enterprises like FedEx, WTO, Honeywell, FCI, Daimler, IBM that have directly experienced an enterprise blockchain digital transformation? Not really, right?

The Live Conference will focus on three key topics:

Building Enterprise Business Opportunities With Distributed Applications
Blockchain is a term applied to a wide family of technologies ranging from cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to more general distributed ledger technologies which are not Blockchains in the technical sense. What unites these technologies is that they all provide infrastructure for a class of applications called distributed, or sometimes decentralized applications. It’s these applications that generate value, not the infrastructure.
To unlock these opportunities, both technology providers and industry need a mental shift away from infrastructure and towards applications.

The speakers and panelists of this section will explore the concept of distributed applications, look at some use-cases far beyond finance, and discuss the major developments over the next one to two years which drive wide adoption and open the door to completely new business models.

Running Enterprise Blockchain Networks
Today’s financial technology is disconnected, siloed, and require traditional intermediaries. Lack of standards and interoperability give rise to disconnected systems that do not speak to one another, while valuable B2B data is trapped in different siloed applications making it hard to collaborate and even harder to verify. Add to this the need to operate in a market constantly pressed by dynamics that see disrupting internet-based models taking the lead and changing the landscape of how e-commerce trading sites must operate.
While the most still struggle to find a way out to resist this business scenario, more forward-looking organizations are watching this space as a great opportunity to create a competitive edge.

Participants in this section will debate why the industry is now in search of a new blockchain-based networks. Such networks require the creation of network effects, hence the dramatic rise in the number of trade finance consortia and industry initiatives focused on creating better-connected ecosystem. Participants will also explain why company size doesn’t mean much: while startups and small companies are certainly more agile to make turns and follow the stream, some global multinationals are proving strong capabilities to adapt their business models and take advantage of innovative technologies.

Going Global with Blockchain
It is a fact that the expected disruptive impact that blockchain has on enterprise business processes is a matter that is getting on the agendas of C-level corporate executives.
Given that international trade has a strong legacy in paper-intensive manual operations, today financial institutions, regulatory bodies, industry associations and individual enterprises all agree it is time to remove the inherent inefficiencies and adopt innovative and potentially disruptive technologies that will allow them to leapfrog the gap between international trade industry and technologically advanced players.

Speakers in this section will discuss and share real life examples of how global enterprises are looking at blockchain as a powerful technology that can simplify, modernize and harmonize their supply chain processes. This effort is not done in a vacuum chamber but in the real world, hence a collaborative approach is the bridge that closes inevitable gaps between trading partners. Initiatives are already in place to convene an open online dialogue among multilateral and regional institutions, think tanks, business associations, governments, consortia/platforms and businesses from around the world regarding the global adoption of blockchain.
