Advisory Board

Blockchain Live Advisory Board

Our mission statement identifies that we’ll ‘take blockchain to the mainstream’ and that is the fundamental purpose for our Advisory Board. Our board members have been selected to provide a business focused exhibition which gives us a balanced perspective of blockchain and how it can be adopted in practical terms for our audience.

We can only achieve our mission if the business case for blockchain technology is communicated with evidence to enterprise, governments, public sector decision makers and policy makers. Our association with GovNet means we have connections in the government to bring this unique audience together like no other event in this this fast evolving space can, positioning Blockchain Live at the forefront.

The Blockchain Live Advisory Board ensures that we have a strategic partnership with the technology’s leading innovators and influencers. Thus bringing together developers, investors, adopters and enthusiast of blockchain all under one roof.

By speaking to people within the industry, we discover the challenges impacting these industries and how blockchain is being used. With this high level, industry-led and industry sourced content, we will attract the very best in terms of delegates who are keen to hear from those at the cutting edge of innovation in the nascent blockchain space.
