Barcelona, Spain – Barcelona is poised to host Europe’s largest blockchain event from October 24-27. European Blockchain Convention 9 (EBC9), scheduled to take place in the Catalan capital, will be the largest event of its kind for H2, 2023. It will also be the most significant European Blockchain Convention since the event started in 2018 with an estimated 5,000 delegates.
Barcelona will be abuzz on the last weekend in October as EBC9 comes to town and industry experts flock to the three-day crypto event. The conference coincides with the highly anticipated El Clásico clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid.
300 founders, CEOs, and industry experts will be in attendance to speak at European Blockchain Convention 9, including C-level execs from Nansen, Fidelity, Fabric Ventures, and Animoca Brands. In addition to senior figures from leading blockchain companies, there will be speakers from traditional companies, including Banco Santander and Volkswagen. Senior personnel from Binance Labs and Galaxy Digital will also be in attendance.
Victoria Gago, co-founder of European Blockchain Convention, said: “We have seen a significant increase in registrations and interest from exhibitors and sponsors alike after the overwhelmingly positive feedback we got from our previous edition. Building on that momentum, we are moving EBC9 to Fira Barcelona, a much larger venue. As the largest convention centre in Spain, it offers ample space for exhibitors, a greater variety of content, and more engaging experiences.”
"We are extremely excited to bring together the worlds of TradFi, digital assets and web3,” shared fellow co-founder Daniel Salmeron. “The participation of so many traditional banks and financial institutions demonstrates their commitment and optimism about the future of crypto and digital assets.”
The ninth edition of the European Blockchain Convention will incorporate a diverse agenda that addresses regulatory challenges, CBDCs, privacy, the institutionalization of crypto, DeFi, sustainability, tokenization, and the ascent of AI.
In addition to panel discussions and workshops hosted across three stages, the program includes a 3,000 sqm exhibition area for sponsors and exhibitors. There will also be AMA sessions with speakers, a 1-to-1 meeting area, and five themed networking lounges. Other events scheduled for EBC9 include an investor meetup, an art gallery, and the second edition of the EBC Startup Awards.
At the top of the side event list, there will also be a Hackathon where 200+ hackers, 30+ mentors, and 20 teams are expected to participate in a 48-hour hackathon.
