Singapore once again signals its importance in the Asia Pacific region when it hosts the leading conference for banks and financial institutions looking to implement Blockchain technology. The event held on 7th – 8th May in the swanky Novotel Singapore is ideally situated in the historic riverside district of Clarke Quay, only a short stroll from Chinatown.
The conference aims to provide a mix of discussion including looking ‘beyond the tech’ at the non-technical challenges hindering wide-scale adoption including industry education, legal concerns and the uncertainty about regulation. The audience is made up of 300 senior banking executives who are ideally placed to make well-informed decisions on the implementation of blockchain into their organisations. The event is not designed to attract crowds of thousands; it is a smaller affair with all sessions built around key sponsors such as the Siam Commercial Bank.
