Blockchain Tech Crypto Meetup

2-day Blockchain/Bitcoin/Fintech Quick-Intro:

Ideal conditions for your introduction to THE topic of the future for many sectors: we’ve rounded up some of the best experts in the fields of Blockchain technology, Bitcoins, Fintech and nearly everything related for 2 days in Essen.

Just a 10-minute walk from the ICE train station, 30 minutes by car from the Dusseldorf airport, parking garages everywhere, short distances to everything. You go from one presentation to the next and can then attend the BarCamps and evening get-togethers to make contacts with the respective presenters and ask questions.



The biggest Crypto Meetup in Germany

30 International Blockchain Speaker in the Ruhr Valley – unique!

Everything is highly concentrated, with many offerings available at the same time for choosing as you desire, so your time is fully utilized. You can even leave a presentation at any time if you have understood the main points and want to have some one-on-one exchange at the coffee machine, or simply need a break to eat something. We have a total of nearly 5000 sq. meters in center city in 4 adjacent buildings – from a comfortable shared flat situation to a luxury hotel, with reviews on the booking sites at the absolute top.
