Japan is at the heart of cryptocurrency innovation with its tech-savvy culture and positive regulatory environment. This April 1 – 3, Blockchain Expo is bringing its trade show series to Tokyo for three days packed with fin-tech networking and exposure, where businesses can surround themselves with other blockchain businesses.
Taking place April 1 – 3, Japan’s premier blockchain exposition, Blockchain Expo Tokyo, will feature industry-leading speakers including CEOs, academics, and government officials. The exhibition floor will be packed with companies from various industries, with each focusing on harnessing the power of blockchain technology. The trade show is scheduled twice yearly, with the fall Blockchain Expo Tokyo to be held October 28 – 31.
The expo is hosted by Reed Exhibition, Japan’s largest exhibition organizer which specializes in providing valuable business-to-business opportunities. Sponsors include BCCC and the JBA, the Japan Blockchain Organization, along with media partners Goodway, Watch, CoinTelegraph, BBS, CoinPost, and Blockchain Media.
With the rapidly expanding Japanese market, attendees are encouraged to learn from Japan’s most influential leaders in the blockchain industry. One headline speaker is Yuzo Kano, the CEO of bitFlyer, which is the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the country. Kano will be discussing how society may change due to the blockchain revolution.
In addition, Microsoft’s Kazumi Hirose will be speaking about the use of blockchain in business, while professors from Hitotsubashi and Waseda University will be discussing the impact of un-falsifiable data and the applications of blockchain as society’s “new trust foundation”. Representatives from the Japanese government will also be speaking, with the Economic Revitalization Bureau Cabinet Secretariat covering the current regulatory sandbox in Japan.
In addition, businesses will have the opportunity to share the floor with global blockchain-industry peers. Blockchain Expo Tokyo’s exhibitors have backgrounds in fields as diverse as finance, manufacturing, social infrastructure, real estate, IT, consulting, education, and more. One thing brings them together: blockchain technology. From fingerprint enabled cold wallets, blockchain games, and technical blockchain services to miners, hardware manufacturers, and exchanges, the industry will be well-represented by the trade show’s attendees.
With an anticipated gathering of 65,000 visitors and 100 exhibitors, the trade show also offers businesses and various projects the opportunity to get unrivaled exposure and coverage. Prospective exhibitors can still apply for a spot on the show floor for the Spring Blockchain Expo. Those who can’t attend the upcoming expo are encouraged to attend the fall expo instead, taking place October 28 – 31.
Visitor Tickets can be acquired at no cost from the Blockchain Expo Tokyo website and VIP tickets are also granted to qualifying applicants free of charge. The cost to enter the expo will be JPY 5,000/person at the door for those without a ticket. To get free tickets, users need to complete the registration form.
