AI and Blockchain Summit: Post-event results and unexpected outcomes
AI & Blockchain Summit hosted last week by InnMind at Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona is recognized as a turning point between dreams and reality, as most startups have commented. The 3-day event turned out to be a complete success not only for young companies, who looked for support, but also for the mature industrial companies and partners, who came there to network.
For InnMind team the most important outcome of the event is the new business development opportunities, opened for our sponsors and participants. Right now the team is still collecting feedback and follow ups, but they already see that many companies have reached their KPIs for relevant B2B connections during summit as a basis for their business development pipeline for 2020.
Among them there are POCs for blockchain implementations with customers from corporate and public sectors, investment relationship for future funding rounds for startups and strategic partnerships for business expansion in the new regions. This was the main goal of the event and the team is happy that they could reach it for their network.
The past AI & Blockchain Summit in Barcelona, under the organization of InnMind, could only be associated with the brightest and most positive emotions. Although, by no means the three-day consecutive program could be considered a “relaxing time”, the summit has managed to gather its attention amongst the Smart City Congress by inviting representatives and recognized experts in the AI and Blockchain industry:
- Daniel Marco [Director General of Innovation and Digital Economy at Government of Catalonia]
- Mareme Dieng [Head of Partnerships and International Relations at Draper University]
- Jan Schoenig [Director Digital Cities and Infrastructure Siemens AG]
- Pietro Lanza [General Manager Intesa, Blockchain Leader IBM Italia]
- Wilfried Pimenta de Miranda [Business Development Director at the IOTΛ Foundation]
And many others who are reflected on the official webpage, shared a moment with InnMind on stage, exploring and embracing the potential of future technology, by focusing all the sight on their ideas.
The first part of the Summit was fulfilled with amazing moments where the audience had to witness the new developments of high-tech and industry leading companies in AI and Blockchain, but also moments to network.
AI & Blockchain Summit Program Director – Igor Jiang stated,
“Future and present of technologies are already here. You can witness real cases of AI, blockchain, IOT implementation everywhere. This is an essential part of human, urban and community life. And this is a core mission of AI & Blockchain Summit: to promote the best tech practices and share bright ideas that are coming from all over the world. Last BLS Summit events were held in Switzerland, in 2019 you joined us in amazing Barcelona, so wait for the next chapter of this incredible story in 2020”
