Malta Blockchain Summit 2019, 23-24th May

  • May 10, 2019

Malta is fast becoming a hot spot for the technology industry of the future.

How Malta Became “The Blockchain Island”

Malta has traditionally been known for its age-old history and architectural tourist attractions linked to the Knights of the Order of St John. However, in recent years, Malta is fast becoming a hot spot for the technology industry of the future. There has been a lot of investment into the iGaming hub and the industry is growing attracting a number of talented international professionals to live and work in Malta. Malta became affectionately known by the tech industry as Blockchain Island last year thanks to the Maltese Parliament passing regulatory laws for Cryptocurrency, during the first Blockchain Summit in 2018 which created waves among the fintech media. The summit was such a success that during this year, both a Summer and Winter event were planned and both are already much talked about.

The 2019 Blockchain Summit – Summer Edition

The 2019 Malta AI and Blockchain summit will again be attended by the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, 5000 delegates, and excitingly, 700 investors. There are a host of Guest Speakers offering a wealth of knowledge and insight into Blockchain and AI practices through workshops and presentations, and companies from around the world will be exhibiting their technology and services. It’s certainly an inspirational event

for anyone working within the Fintech industry or aspiring to a career or business venture that is crypto-currency or AI focused. There are premier networking events with ample opportunity to make valuable international business connections. The conference events and The Awards Gala which features the Archduke of Austria as Chief Guest, will be held at the Hilton, St Julian’s. Companies can book a table at the Gala. For premier ticket holders, there’s also a closing Pool Party and boxing event following the conference on the 25th May.

Places To Stay In Malta For The Blockchain Summit Summer Edition

St Julian’s will be a busy place to be during the Blockchain Summit. However, it’s easy to travel by a relaxing ferry from Malta’s capital city Valletta, and in fact, Valletta offers a better place to stay to make the most of your visit to Malta. There are so many things to see and do in Valletta during the day and evening, so why not add a few days to your trip? You can visit the stunning St Paul’s Co-Cathedral, or soak up some history and culture in one of Valletta’s many museums, enjoy the nightlife at any of the friendly local pubs and bars, or if you’d prefer a quiet, relaxing starlit stroll, the Grand Harbour is the perfect place to spend the evening. An intimate, luxury boutique hotel like Casa Ellul on Old Theatre Street offers a hideaway where you can log off and wind down for the evening!
