Blockchain innovation is not the only reason for the choice of venue. Singapore will provide a melting pot of cultures, exquisite food and charming neighborhoods to fuel unforgettable moments.
The main aim of BlockShow Asia is to reveal Blockchain sensations.

BlockShow is not new to the industry. The participants of BlockShow Europe left with new opportunities and new information to move forward with their Blockchain goals. For Deloitte, Steemit, Changelly and many other companies, the conference has been a successful event for networking and they were eagerly looking forward to more. Even those simply looking for more insight had a great experience in making the most out of the information learned and following their passions.
The Keynote Speakers of our previous event had this to say.
Charlie Shrem, Founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, BizDev at Changelly said:
“BlockShow is really great. I’ve been to a bunch of events in the US and this was my ﬁrst trip outside of the US in the last four years and had to pick a good event. Cointelegraph is not new to the industry, you guys have been around for many years. So it’s not like there are a few events funded by these new entities that do not really understand what the vision was. Of course, you have to know where you came from to know where you are going. So it is a great choice for you guys to organize the BlockShow 2017. It was super awesome and exciting.”
Paolo Tasca, Executive Director at UCL Center for Blockchain Technologies, told Cointelegraph:
“I personally think that, in the end, it really turned out to be a great show about Blockchain, and you were great in getting everyone in the right mood. Both speakers and attendees came from a variety of backgrounds, which had undoubtedly enriched the conference and it also allowed precious occasions for networking. The organization was absolutely efﬁcient, as well. I pay my compliments for your success and I can just provide a sincere positive feedback about BlockShow Europe 2017.”
Milan Sallaba, a partner at Deloitte, Technology Sector Head, commented:
“BlockShow Europe 2017 was a successful event with interesting presentations and panels, and it provided good opportunities to network. We hope to be back next year.”
