Alt Convention Conference in Batumi, Georgia

While this conference may have the term “alt” in its name, it simply stands for the various, alternative aspects of the financial world which will all be unified under one roof. During this three-day event, there will a large focus on business, finance, and technology, both in terms of FinTech, but also for digital currencies such as Bitcoin.

The reason as to why Alt Convention Conference is being hosted in Georgia can be attributed to the country’s “ease of business” nature, ranking it in the top 15 countries in the world in that regard.  In fact, Georgia prides itself on its stable and growing economy, with many forward-thinking individuals, turning the country into a potential hub for entrepreneurs and developers.

This three-day conference is aimed towards people from all aspects of life.  Regardless of whether you are an entrepreneur, a business owner, an inventor or a government official, everyone is welcome to enjoy the experience offered by Alt Convention Conference. During this event, there will be various workshops, network events, panels, an exhibit area and, of course, a hackathon.

“Because of our first-hand insight into the business, IT, and FinTech climate in Georgia, we decided to host Alt Convention. The legislative and banking climate, and growth opportunities in this emerging market are staggering.” David Ruebush, CEO, Global Bitbillions Group Incorporated told the media.

List of Speakers Partnerships So Far

Even though it is still early, Alt Convention Conference will host quite a list of interesting speakers. Names such as Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Jonas Kjellberg (co-creator of popular messaging app Skype), Jon Matonis and Pamela Morgan, there are more than enough reasons to attend this upcoming event in Georgia.

There are still quite a few months to go before this event officially takes place; the event organizers are working around the clock to expand the current list of speakers. Two of the latest additions to that list are Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof and Tatiana Moroz. It is always a good thing to see more women representing the world of finance, as it remains a fairly male-dominated sector.

Several major names in the Bitcoin industry are actively partnering with Alt Convention Conference to bring the focus on digital currency, blockchain technology and FinTech to Georgia. Companies such as Kraken, Bitnation Counterparty, as well as news outlets such as Digital Money Times and 247CryptoNews are lending a helping hand.
