Event Overview

For many people, Blockchain has been synonymous with Bitcoin. Although bitcoins were one of the primary reasons for creation of blockchains. There have been a lot of developments in this technology and now, this technology has the potential to impact and boost operational efficiencies of large number of organizations across the globe. While the financial services may be at the forefront of these changes. This opportunity has presented itself with increased urgency across a wide range of sectors. Such as government and ministries, advertising, hospitality, health care, energy, food and agriculture—if there’s a business there’s a transaction, and wherever there’s a transaction there is an opportunity for blockchain.

As blockchain makes considerable forays into financial services pioneers are beginning to recognize the equally big opportunities it offers in many other areas such as energy, transportation, health care, supply chain, real estate, manufacturing and so on.
However, many of the industries players are working in an uncoordinated or fragmented manner. This event will bring together the key stakeholders working in diverse fields, creating an exciting cross- industry pollination of ideas and approaches that will yield new insights and explore even more new opportunities for growth and more importantly help in shaping the future blockchain technology policies for the European organizations.

The main goal of this forum is to create the more accessible and a much more diverse, policy-oriented platform where business and government leaders can learn how blockchain could impact their organizations and how they can seize the Opportunity to reap the maximum benefits this budding technology has to offer.

Hence, we at TraiCon will be hosting the “World BlockChain Congress–Azerbaijan 2018” scheduled to take place on 22nd - 23rd November 2018 in Baku, Azerbaijan. This two day summit is an educative platform comprising of both local and international case study presentations, highly interactive panel discussions and networking sessions.

We request all the key government sector stake holders, private sector stake holders and solution providers to support us and actively participate in this summit which focuses on the implementation of Blockchains to improve efficiency of services and boost the economy of the country.
