All Events Group is organizing Blockchain Application and Economics Forum 2018 (Blockchain Asia Forum) in Metro Manila, Philippines. This event is for business leaders and thinkers who want to know how blockchain can impact their businesses, ICOs to let them showcase and win over investors, and for the people who want to learn more about this new technology.

Blockchain Applications and Economics Forum 2018

The promise of Blockchain to disrupt businesses just like the internet did in the 90’s has driven many businesses and corporations to dip into blockchain technology. But how much do you understand about the impact of blockchain on your business and operations? How do you get an unbiased view of blockchain’s potentials and pitfalls? How do you, as a business leader, leapfrog your competition and propel your business into the next evolution? Are you missing out?

The BLOCKCHAIN APPLICATIONS & ECONOMICS FORUM 2018 cuts across the hyperbole and brings together business leaders, government, and blockchain enthusiasts alike to access the state of blockchain and discuss applications on improving and changing the way business is done. Join us for one of the most engaging blockchain events you will find on 28 – 30 May 2018 in Manila, Philippines.
