TMC, Wachsman PR, and Gulf Pearl Ltd. announced the call for papers opened for The Blockchain Event, February 9, 2017 at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Registration for the Blockchain Event is now open. The one-day conference is directed at entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, enthusiasts, executives, product managers and developers of both established enterprises and innovative startups who are interested in learning about the blockchain technology and how it can lead to a mass transformation in industry, both its opportunities and threats.

“This is an opportunity for experts from across the industry to share their insight with a diverse group of attendees who are at a critical point in investing in the quickly growing Blockchain industry,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “Companies will attend to develop new business relationships, grow existing partnerships and adopt more intelligent strategies. We look forward to receiving presentation proposals and learning from this year’s speakers.”

According to the official release, the event will this year focus on Initial Coin Offering (ICO), the new form of capital raising unique to the blockchain and cryptocurrency market. Industry experts will discuss the emerging ICO fever which kicked off in Spring 2016, the regulation and policy surrounding it and what the future holds for the disruptive form of raising.

“Current and future global crypto leaders will be converging at The Blockchain Event to discuss the most pressing and emerging trends in financial technology,” said David Wachsman, founder and CEO of Wachsman PR. “Coming off a triumphant 2016 year for fintech, we are excited to see what major industry players have in store for us for 2017.”

Shidan Gouran, President of Gulf Pearl Ltd., added, “The Blockchain Event will focus on a new disruptive force in capital raising: the ICO. This conference will provide newcomers and experts alike with the opportunity to delve into what this new trend truly means for the future of financing, business development, and marketing.”


Although all submission topics will be considered for The Blockchain Event, conference organizers will be most interested in proposals featuring a special focus on Blockchain Training; Internet of Value; Web 3.0, Decentralization & Cryptography; Emerging Opportunities; Regulations & Policy for a Decentralized World; and Speculating on the Future.
