The Next Block Expo assembles Web3 trailblazers, savvy investors, entrepreneurial spirits, and regulatory minds. It's where the global blockchain community converges to widen networks, seal strategic partnerships, and personally experience the pulse of the industry.
Scheduled for December 4-5, 2023, in Berlin, this European blockchain festival is taking place at CineStar Cinema, situated in the German capital's vibrant center. Conference tickets provide access to an extensive array of content on the main stage and to an exhibition area featuring over 60 exhibitors.

At the helm of the event are industry titans like Animoca Brands, Coinbase, Polygon, Binance, and Internet Computer Protocol. Taking the stage to share their wisdom are:

  • Robby Yung, CEO, Animoca Brands
  • Miko Matsumura, General Partner, gumi Cryptos Capital
  • Jonas Jünger, EU Leadership Team, Binance
  • Philipp Weiling, Business Development Director EMEA, Polygon Labs
  • João Leite, Head of Business Development, Polkastarter
  • Ulrike Lierow-Schad, Managing Director, Berlin CV Labs
  • Antoni Zolciak, Co-Founder, Aleph Zero
  • Peter Grosskopf, CTO, Unstoppable Finance & Ultimate
  • Raza Zaidi, Developer Relations, Scroll
  • Laura K. Inamedinova, Founder & CEO, LKI Consulting

With more than 140 specialists presenting, Next Block Expo 2023 is prepped to be a nexus for over 2,500 attendees. The organizers have crafted content tracks spanning DeFi, the Metaverse, NFTs, gaming, exchange platforms, venture funding, regulatory landscapes, payments, security, and project scaling, among others. 

At the heart of participant interaction will be the specialized mobile app, Brella. It’s designed to simplify networking, allowing users to easily reach out to potential employers, partners, or investors. The app employs artificial intelligence to assist users in finding the contacts they need.

One of the event’s main objectives is to catalyze connections between investors and startup founders at Next Block Expo. An impressive lineup of fifty venture capitalists and more than a hundred startups are confirmed to participate. The event will also feature a hackathon and a pitching contest specifically for Web3 startups in their pre-seed stages.

A spotlight of the Next Block Expo is its focus on empowering women within the Web3 realm. A dedicated session will celebrate women leaders who will share their inspirational journeys, business acumen, and innovative ideas. This segment is set to welcome over 300 female participants.

With such an extensive program, it’s apparent that attendees won’t be able to physically attend every single activity. Acknowledging this, the organizers are offering all guests and speakers at Next Block Expo 45-day access to a video platform where recordings of all speeches, seminars, the hackathon, pitch competitions, and other events will be available.

The festival's program culminates with the Web3 Extravaganza after-party. Hyped as Berlin’s most awaited social gathering by Next Block Expo, this assertion may be a stretch, yet it’s undeniable that the after-party will see its fair share of deals being struck.
