The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit (AIBC) has announced a stellar show for 2019. We will try describe ours feeling on it.
Startups applying in the fierce competition for participation can benefit from a free one-by-one metre booth, free passes to the summit and networking events, print and online media opportunities, and free consultancy and potential leads from industry veterans. Last but not least, ten out of the 100 successful applicants will also be selected for a free Startup Pitch on stage in front of the investors. The Startup Village in collaboration with Malta Enterprise during the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit in November 2018 welcomed the 40 most disruptive startups within AI, Blockchain and IoT to exhibit for free. The unexpected success of last year's show has turned the organisers' eyes towards expansion. For the show in May 2019, they have chosen the Hilton as the conference venue. This also enables the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit to host a first class expo floor suitable for a truly global crowd of exhibitors. The Startup Village of the November summit in 2018 saw no less than 40 startups from all across the globe gathering in Malta. Due to the overwhelming amount of applicants last year, the AIBC is eager to up the game for May 2019 by increasing the free slots to 100 startups. This spring edition of the summit includes a lavish VIP dinner, networking drinks in the midst of the warm Mediterranean spring, a Startup Pitch, an STO Battle and two conferences spanning over the 23rd -24th of May but delegates are advised to block their calendars for 22nd -25th due to all extra events that the AIBC has in the pipeline. The Malta AI & Blockchain Summit is a landmark event that nobody in the field can afford to miss.
