Malta AI & Blockchain Summit will be Europe’s largest event for the blockchain, AI, and emerging tech sectors, it has been confirmed.
More than 6,000 are expected to attend the show, taking place on November 7 and 8 at the Intercontinental Hotel in St Julian’s, Malta, and organised by events company SiGMA Group.
Many delegates will likely be attending the various conferences and workshops at the AIBC Summit, which have always been extremely popular.
Headline topics will include the Future of Fintech, Business and Emerging Tech, Innovation, and Regulation. Leading the discussions will be Joseph Muscat (Malta Prime Minister), Silvio Schembri (Malta Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation), Anthony Pompliano, AKON, Ian Balina, Mati Greenspan, Yorick Wilks, David Orban, Miko Matsumura, Grace Rachman, Tim Draper, Virgil Griffith, and Alfio Bardolla.
In addition to this enviable schedule of engaging content, the AI Start-up pitch will highlight 10 of the best start-ups at the conference (there will be 100 or more in the Start-up Village). Each of these 10 companies will pitch their concepts and services to a panel of judges, with one set to win a business-supporting package for the year.
The AIBC Awards on November 7 will be a glittering celebration of the best of the best in the worlds of AI, blockchain, tokenisation, robotics, IoT, and more. A charity event will wrap up the evening, with the intention of raising a five-figure sum for the SiGMA Foundation’s global activities to help those in need.
Finally, this year’s show also adds glitz and glamour to the proceedings, courtesy of Grammy Awards-winning artist Akon, who will be delivering a keynote on the main stage about his West African AKOIN project, as well as performing at the extravagant closing night on Friday November 8.
Eman Pulis, CEO & founder of SiGMA Group and AIBC Summit, said the summit – part of Malta week – marked a significant point in the forward-looking island’s future.
“We’re so excited to bring this third edition of AIBC Summit to fruition in November,” she said.
“Alongside the latest government initiatives to further establish Malta as Europe’s leading hub for technology, our wider Malta Week activity will develop the synergy between the blockchain and medical cannabis sectors, offering a profitable new direction for smart DLT investors.
“It’s set to be a busy but successful week for everyone!”
