Venue Hilton Malta Resort, St. Julian’s – Malta
This year’s Malta AI & Blockchain Summit (AIBC) is a successor of the first edition that was held in November 2018 and had an attendance of over 8,500 people. Prominent people in the Cryptocurrency and blockchain sector such as the Winklevoss twins and even Sophia, the world’s first AI citizen, graced the November event.
The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit Spring Edition event will provide an opportunity for deep learning, exhibiting, and networking.
During last year’s event, at least 40 startups were provided with an opportunity to exhibit their products. However, due to the unexpected success, the organizers have now turned their attention towards creating more space.
In this year’s AIBC Spring Edition, the organizers will provide at least 100 free booths for startups. Most of these startups are in the Big Data, Quantum Technologies, IoT, Blockchain, and A.I. sectors.
The startups will benefit from free consultancy, print and online media opportunities, networking, and free one-by-one meter booth. The startups may also benefit from potential leads from established individuals in related industries.
Furthermore, at least one in 10 successful applicants will get a chance to be picked for a free Startup Pitch at the event.
Some of the prominent people who will make presentations on blockchain and artificial intelligence among other issues will include;
Joseph Muscat – Malta Prime Minister and Keynote Speaker
Tim Draper- Founder Draper Associates/DFJ/Draper University
Sophia Robot – Robot Citizen – SingularityNET
Max Ganado – Ganado Advocates
Steve Tendon – ChainStrategies Director
David Orban – AI investor and Seed-stage startup
• This year’s AIBC will present the attendees with an opportunity to network. With thousands of professionals in the industry and startups and successful companies, the attendees will get a chance to interact with people from all walks of life.
• In terms of the quality of content, the attendee will benefit from a presentation by expert keynotes and tech influencers. Furthermore, the event will involve interactive discussions and real-life applications of technology.
• The event will be held in a favorable ecosystem. Malta, which is also regarded as Blockchain Island is now a step ahead of most of the other countries as it’s currently working on a national legal framework for A.I.
• This year’s event will be held in a much bigger location. This is in response to the high number of startups that failed to get a space in last year’s event. The new venue is large enough to hold thousands of visitors and exhibitors and to make the conference even more interesting.
• With about 10,000 attendees, hundreds of investors and exhibitors, and some of the best minds in blockchain and A.I. industries, you cannot afford to miss this summit.
Some of the major media partners in this year’s edition include Cointelegraph, Times Malta, Cryptmini, and CoinMarketCap. Other media houses partnering with AIBC include Arab Bit, AI Time Journal, Asia Blockchain Review, and Bitcoin Market Journal among others.
The media partners will play a major role in spreading a word about this year’s event internationally.
