A World Economic Forum survey suggests that 10% of global GDP will be stored on blockchain by 2027
This leadership evening is by invitation only
For all of the claims that blockchain will revolutionise the way the economy works, supporters of the crypto-revolution seem to overlook the necessities of enterprise adoption.
Join our leadership evening to discuss and find out what fellow technologists think about potential hurdles to adoption. Listen to suggestions on how to assess the impact and feasibility and start extracting value in the short term. Tackle misconceptions about the advantages as well as the limitations of the technology, and hear what other organisations are doing when it comes to adoption
The evening will comprise presentations followed by a facilitated group discussion.

Case study: Blockchain in the travel and leisure industry
Travelport has been working alongside IBM for the past year to develop blockchain technology to manage the complex maze of different bookings required for holidays, where multiple operators across a number of platforms are involved. With their aim of releasing a minimum viable product over the next few months, Andy will discuss the partnership in more detail and how they assessed the viability of blockchain to them.

Blockchain - The seasons winter into spring
The blockchain winter is now upon us after several years of hype. Business and IT leaders must prepare for the blockchain "spring" that will emerge once core-enabling technologies and use cases evolve and mature, resulting in significant benefits for the enterprise.
