Following the success of last year’s event, the ANON Summit is coming back to Vienna for its second edition.

The comprehensive two-day technology conference will take place on April 15-16 in the picturesque Austrian capital and is expected to draw a large crowd.

Organisers are projecting that more than 2,000 attendees and 100 speakers will gather to discuss the most salient issues in the blockchain and emerging technologies space.

Among the confirmed speakers so far are none other than the legendary author of Mastering Bitcoin Andreas Antonopoulos, Kraken’s Head of Banking Maximilian Marenbach, and the EU Commissioner for Innovation and Youth Mariya Gabriel.

Interoperability is the key to mass adoption

This year’s summit will focus on the much-debated issue of interoperability and how different technologies and organisations can work better together.

Industry influencers, entrepreneurs, investors, representatives of key corporations, and government officials will educate, enlighten, debate, and strike up important discussions over two separate stages.

Informative keynotes, lively panels, educational workshops, and plenty of breakout sessions will all complement the programme as ANON Summit 2020 looks to “bridge the gap” between the traditional and tech sectors.

To get an idea of what attendees can expect to get out of the ANON Summit, check out the highlights from last year’s edition below:

The conference’s goal this year is to unite large corporations with young start-ups – complementing experience with innovation.

Besides the action on stage, there will be ample opportunities to network. ANON Summit 2020 will provide attendees with a “state-of-the-art” networking tool, as well as a dedicated networking area in which one-on-one meetings can be arranged, allowing delegates to get down to business and build long-lasting partnerships.

“This year’s message is innovation through collaboration,” said Daniel Lenikus, co-organiser of the event.

“We have created ANON Summit intending to become a platform to facilitate partnerships and encourage conversation.”

ANON Summit 2020 will also cover AI and IoT

With the theme of the conference being interoperability, it makes sense that the ANON Summit should shine a light on artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies as well. Not only does this cast a wider net for potential delegates, but it showcases Austria as a country primed and open for the business of the future.

“We want to show the possibilities of the three technologies. Not only each one on its own, but especially in conjunction with each other,” Lenikus commented.

For those who attended the conference last year, 2020 will not disappoint. And for new guests, you can expect to find a thriving and educational event divided into two different tracks: digital currencies and assets and the interoperability of technologies in mobility, energy, banking, and finance.

This year’s summit will also feature a €100,000 pitch challenge, which is sure to draw the attention of many hopeful projects.
