As part of an international expansion, CoinDesk is partnering with Informa PLC, to launch its flagship conference in Singapore in September 2018
CoinDesk, Inc, the leading digital media, events, and information services company for the crypto and blockchain community, has announced that it will be partnering with Knect365’s premier TechXLR8 event series to launch the inaugural edition of Consensus: Singapore this year. After four years of compounding success with Consensus in New York City, CoinDesk has selected Singapore as the destination for its first international event. The event will be held on September 18-20, 2018, and registration will officially open Monday, May 14th.
“Consensus NYC has become the can’t-miss blockchain industry event of the year, and I couldn’t be more proud of the CoinDesk team in making this all a possibility” said CoinDesk CEO Kevin Worth. “Blockchain technology has fostered a truly global community, and we are excited to expand our event presence internationally. TechXLR8 has done a fantastic job with its events, and is the perfect partner for this new endeavor.”
Started in 2015 by CoinDesk, the annual Consensus event held in New York City in May has become the biggest industry event of the year in just four years time, attracting, this year, over 7,500 attendees from across the worlds of business, technology, academia, and government. CoinDesk has previously expanded the Consensus series in New York City, with its first annual Consensus: Invest in November 2017. However, the Consensus: Singapore event marks a pivotal moment for the series as it expands to a market that has embraced blockchain technology in short order across both the private and public sectors.
Knect365 has been running the TechXLR8 event series for 2 years, establishing itself as the flagship event of London’s Tech Week in Europe. TechXLR8 Asia, TechXLR8 London’s sister event, returns to Singapore for a second year, bringing together 6 of the leading technology events under one roof including 5G Asia, IoT World Asia, NV & SDN, The AI Summit, Project Kairos, and now Consensus Singapore. Taking place on September 18-20 at the Marina Bay Sands, TechXLR8 Asia brings together technology leaders from across the APAC region to discuss the innovations and trends shaping the future of business, lives and society.
