Australian Blockchain Mission to Consensus 2019 Delegate Directory (PDF 2.141MB)

Consensus is one of the landmark events on the blockchain calendar attracting professionals from leading industry players, investment firms, financial services, academic institutions, policy groups, and start-ups. Last year, a global audience of over 8,000 attendees, represented over 800 companies from 35 countries. The conference featured three days of demos, networking and expert discussions regarding the most important commercial developments, technical innovations, and public policy issues affecting blockchain.

The 2019 Australia mission will include a pre-departure briefing, a welcome reception and a networking dinner, along with access to the Australia Lounge - an exclusive space at the conference venue in the New York Hilton Hotel. The Australia Lounge will provide a space for networking as well as a venue for delegates to hold one-on-one client/partner meetings.
