Exploring the Business of Enterprise Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies.
Anaheim, CA: Global Strategic Management Institute (GSMI), a nationwide leader in executive summits, trade shows, and industry research, announces the next event in the Business of Blockchain Event Series: Blockchain West Summit 2019. Blockchain West is a three-day summit on March 19-21, 2019 at the Anaheim Marriott in Southern California, with a 100% focus on the application of blockchain to enterprise and government.
This unique event is not just another cryptocurrency conference. You won’t hear any talk about ICOs, bitcoin price or whether something is a utility or security token. Instead Blockchain West will focus on connecting attendees with those actively engaged in implementing blockchain based technologies, platforms, and decentralized applications as well as industry-leading consultants and experts. Use cases for enterprise blockchain will be explored for application in Energy, Healthcare, Government, Security, IoT, Supply Chain, Logistics, and many other industries.
Previous attendee, Navroop Sahdev of MIT, describes the Summit:
“Blockchain West is definitely one of the high-quality blockchain conferences out there. While many blockchain conferences are focused on ICO pitches and marketing, Blockchain West is anchored on subject matter content and expert discussions. Pretty much everyone I talked to was impressed with the organization.”
