That’s because it is bringing together more than 100 of the most respected developers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and “smart money” investors from all the most important emerging technology fields – not just blockchain tech.
This three-day conference will be held at the Dallas Convention Center, close to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, in September. We are expecting more than 2,000 attendees, 100 headline speakers, and 100 exhibitors – with talks from founders, developers, and early-stage investors in blockchain, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, cybersecurity, and other emerging technologies that are set to disrupt almost every sector of the global economy.
Crypto Invest Summit is the largest investment conference and expo for ICOs, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies on the West Coast.
Taking place from April 30th through May 2nd at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Crypto Invest Summit promises to bring the “who-is-who” in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space together on two stages for two days of presentations, pitches, educational panels and insightful fireside chats with industry leaders
Crypto Invest Summit co-founder Josef Holm was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions about the event. You can read the interview below.
Interview with Crypto Invest Summit Co-Founder Josef Holm
What motivated you to found Crypto Invest Summit?
We’ve been hosting conferences for some time now in the crowdfunding space and felt like there was an opportunity to enter the token ecosystem and bring some of the brightest minds in the field together. Our research showed that many people were hungry to learn more about the topic, so what better way to educate yourself than being surrounded by over 4,500 crypto-fanatics. We wanted to create a conference that people would feel proud attending and tell their friends about. After Alon and I traveled to various other crypto related summits, we noticed that there wasn’t one that brought all the components of a great conference together; so we created Crypto Invest Summit, the largest blockchain and cryptocurrency conference on the west coast.
What makes this event unique?
Crypto Invest Summit spans across two stages over two and half days, one of which is an Initial Coin Offering Pitch stage where ICO’s will have 10 minutes to present their projects to willing investors. Unlike most other conferences in the field, our primary goal is to bring blockchain investment opportunities and investors in the same room and create an environment where ICOs can effectively get their message out, and investors have the opportunity to meet with founders face to face. Also, the conference is being held in one of the fastest growing cities for tech, so you can bet that you’ll be surrounded by top-tier talent. In addition, we’re stoked to showcase the leading women in blockchain, with honorable speakers such as Veronica Reynolds, Jenny Ta, and Tavonia Evans to name a few.
How will attending Crypto Invest Summit benefit investors, startups, and business professionals?
Investors and ICOs will meet, deals will be closed, and networks will grow, that’s for sure. With over 4,500 people attending, nothing compares to in-person meetings and networking with the top-tier business and technology leaders.
What networking opportunities will attendees have?
Every moment is a networking opportunity at Crypto Invest Summit. With that being said, we can’t wait for attendees to unwind with one another during day one’s Kick Off Party and day two’s Expo Floor Networking Party. We’ve designed these parties to commemorate networking so that you can be sure of a great time.
What types of insights can attendees expect to take away from the summit?
We’re looking forward to having a fireside chat Brock Pierce and Tim Draper, and hearing from over 60 world-class speakers like Brian Fargo, David Bleznak, Steve Beauregard, Baron Davis, Davis Moss and many more. We’ll be discussing various topics such as cybersecurity with Leemon Baird of Hashgraph, social good with Devin Thorpe of Forbes, blockchain in eSports and gaming with Alex Kokhanovskyy, becoming a successful crypto investor, tokenization debates, and a various legal and regulatory issues, to name a few.
Do you have any advice for attendees who have never been to a cryptocurrency-related conference before?
I remember my first conference, I felt really lost with a lot of the panel discussions and overwhelmed with the majority of topics. Luckily we’ve designed Crypto Invest Summit to accompany all levels of expertise, with topics ranging from beginner to advance. Our efforts show as we’ve already attracted a diverse audience who look forward to learning from one another. Don’t be discouraged from entering a field you know nothing about because the fastest way to learn something is by surrounding yourself with people who know the subject better than you do.

CryptoBlockCon co-founder CJ Smith was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions about the event. A transcript of the interview is reproduced below.
Interview with CryptoBlockCon Co-founder CJ Smith
What motivated you to found CryptoBlockCon?
Blockchain technology, and in particular decentralization, has the potential to impact and improve almost any industry. New and disruptive technologies have always captivated me, and blockchain is not only disruptive but has the ability to save lives in the healthcare industry by allowing doctors to get informations quicker and with higher accuracy, it has the ability to provide bank accounts and credit to people who do not have access, and will provide transparency and security for industries which need it most.
Todd, my business partner, owns and has owned and sold many conferences, one of which I also work for. He and I have spoken about blockchain and bitcoin since the day we met, and blockchain technology in particular is something which we are both very passionate about. Last September we started talking about holding a blockchain a cryptocurrency conference, as it seemed like a natural fit between our interests and professional experience, and we want to help educate, connect, and create conversations around this technology. We held our first event in Las Vegas, December of 2017, as a proof of concept, and the rest was history!
What makes CryptoBlockCon events unique?
First, we have many friends and professional connections in the blockchain space which will help differentiate us from other blockchain and cryptocurrency events. We know that any event is only as good as its content and attendees.
Second, we’ve held many events, varying in size, and we know what works well and what doesn’t when it comes to producing a conference. We know how to create a large yet intimate experience, and we know how to help facilitate dialogue and create a community, as opposed to a lecture hall. We will hold opening and closing receptions, again focusing on community. CryptoBlockCon will also provide entertainment for attendees like music, because a good experience is all about the right balance.
How will attending CryptoBlockCon benefit investors, startups, and business professionals?
Investors will learn from other professional investors on our investor panel, will listen to ICO pitches during our ICO pitch competition, and will meet many startups and entrepreneurs in the blockchain space.
Startups will be able to learn from professional investors about how to appeal to potential investors and raise capital, as well as meet developers, and learn from other entrepreneurs and startups using blockchain technology.
What networking opportunities will attendees have?
For the Los Angeles event, April 4-5, we will hold a ‘blockchain and bourbon’ event during one of the evening receptions. The founder of the world’s largest bourbon database will show his creation, which lives on the blockchain, and everyone will all be able to try some of the bourbons. It’s experiences like this which help bring people together before and after an event and solidify relationships. We also provide lunch so people do not need to leave the venue, we will have a small exhibit floor for people to learn about different companies and talk to their teams, and we put a lot of emphasis on the venue we select which many event organizers fail to do. The venue dictates the flow of the overall show, and really impacts the overall experience for attendees.
What types of insights can attendees expect to take away from CryptoBlockCon?
For the Los Angeles event, some of our featured panels will be discussing investing in blockchain startups, blockchain impacting the music industry, the ability to digitally send wealth and assets, ethics and humanitarianism with blockchain, and SEC compliance for ICOs. Attendees will learn from seasoned blockchain entrepreneurs and experts about real world blockchain applications, meet developers, listen to ICO pitches, and network with some of the brightest minds in the blockchain industry.
