Australian Blockchain Mission to Consensus 2018, New York

About event:

New York City is the global financial centre and a leader in blockchain innovation. From digital currencies, to payments, agtech and decentralised energy to smart contracts and cloud storage - New York City continues to be a vital research, development and deployment market for this growing technology.

Australian companies involved in blockchain technology are invited to join the Australian Blockchain Mission to Consensus 2018, New York. In partnership with ADCA (Australian Digital Commerce Association), Austrade will build on the success of the 2017 mission when Australia hosted the largest blockchain delegation to come to New York. The mission will profile Australia as a key player in the development of blockchain technology for a second year. The program will give you access to targeted networking events and briefings in conjunction with Consensus 2018. Once again we look forward to working in partnership with the Governments of New South Wales, Victoria and Data61.

In addition, VentureOut has organized a private NYC blockchain conference the week prior to Consensus (May 9-11), an exclusive event to meet and learn from leading blockchain-focused venture capitalists, startups and financial services institutions in NYC. This event is an opportunity to supercharge your network in the US blockchain ecosystem. While we are partnering with VentureOut, subscription to their program will be separate from that of the Austrade mission.
