International Blockchain Week To Be Held In September

The Ethereum Foundation and Wanxiang Blockchain Labs have jointly announced the International Blockchain Week in Shanghai, which will take place at Hyatt on the Bund, September 19–24, 2016.

The 6-day event will combine Devcon2 and 2nd Global Blockchain Summit, and will feature a unique three-segment format, allowing people to attend any combination of days best suited to their needs.

“China Wanxiang Holding is very excited that we have had the opportunity to contribute in the process of making Shanghai the international financial and technological innovation center with the support from Wanxiang Blockchain Labs. I firmly believe this year’s International Blockchain Week in Shanghai will further promote the technology in China, provide an opportunity for sharing knowledge between countries, building a stronger relationship between talents, and encouraging the use of blockchain technology in start-ups”, said Xiao Feng, Executive Director of Wanxiang Holdings.

This year, the event includes an optional day of organized sightseeing tours on September 18, 2016, the day before the commencement of the week’s events.

Ethereum’s Devcon2 will debut in Asia with the support of its co-host and event partner, Wanxiang Blockchain Labs, and will be held from September 19-21. It will feature Ethereum developers who will introduce, present, and discuss the latest work and related considerations and topics of interest in Ethereum research and development.

September 22 has been reserved for Demo Day – a new feature which will be of particular interest to investors, venture capital firms, and start-ups. Co-hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs and ChainB, one of China’s leading blockchain news agencies, Demo Day will feature presentations by some of the most accomplished blockchain-enabled companies in the world.

The Second Global Blockchain Summit will be held on September 23, 24 and is hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs. This segment of the conference will consist of panels and talks by blockchain pioneers and industry leaders. Discussions will focus on addressing current and future business use cases, economic and social impacts, as well as how blockchain technology may be utilized and deployed for trade and other industries.

Ethereum’s Devcon and Wanxiang Blockchain Labs’ Global Blockchain Summit were highly successful last year. This year’s event is one of the most anticipated industry events as the format and versatility of the event will allow greater interaction and opportunities for attendees to communicate, meet and participate across event segments.
