Blockchain Valley Conference

13 June 2017

Understanding the Revolution and What Comes Next

Blockchain is revolutionising transactions, just as the Internet has revolutionised communication. The new concept will drastically change industry, society and everyday life. This change is happening fast, and it’s happening in the Blockchain Valley in and around Zurich.

That is why IBM Research, Swiss Re and the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, who are at the forefront of blockchain research, development and prediction, have joined forces to approach the topic from different points of view at the Blockchain Valley Conference:

  • Technology and Innovation: As a pioneer in advancing the science of blockchain for business use, IBM Research explains the principles behind the technology and shows how domains such as the supply chain, Internet of Things and healthcare are poised for dramatic change
  • Business: Swiss Re, founding member of the Blockchain Insurance Industry Initiative, illustrates the potential impact of distributed ledger technologies on the financial services sector
  • Society: GDI, one of Switzerland’s leading think tanks for economics, society and consumption, takes a look at how blockchain is transforming the concept of trust and changing society radically
Join us at the Blockchain Valley Conference on 13 June 2017 at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute in Rüschlikon, Zurich. The event will connect networks of blockchain research and practice with thought leaders and decision makers from society, business and the media.
