With Dubai covered, we now move onto the reason why the AIBC community is the place to be for any enterprising technologist who sees the potential of Blockchain, AI, the Metaverse and other areas of emerging tech in remaking society as we know it
Bringing together thought leaders and pioneers from across the globe, the summit keeps its hand on the pulse of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and, most importantly, bridges these sectors together. This makes AIBC the place to be for crosspollination between all of these emerging sectors allowing AI, Crypto, the Metaverse and more to empower each other and compound their own growth.
The presence of leading policy makers and regulators as well as national delegations also make it the place to see the path of entire industries as a whole. Beyond this, we can see many other reasons why some of the leading figures in the industry have made this summit a core part of their broader network. This article serves as a both a retrospective on how much we’ve done as well as offers a glimpse into what we will accomplish in the near future.
How far we’ve come
From its origins in 2018, AIBC has come a long way towards becoming a pillar of technological sophistication and entrepreneurial innovation globally. This isn’t to say that it began with a whisper and not a bang, far from it actually. The inaugural conference, AIBC 2018, saw Malta’s DLT and cryptocurrency regulation officially debuting at the summit. This was a watershed moment for the industry as a whole with Malta being one of the first states to consider a legal regime for the emerging industry.
We also saw the conference being graced by the likes of John McAfee, Ben Goertzel and Professor Stornetta, pioneers in the industry who went above and beyond to lay the foundations of this truly world-changing technology.
In the modern day, the Blockchain isn’t the only thing that has gone from strength to strength. AIBC has also grown exponentially with over 10,000 delegates attending the summit during Malta Week 2021. That AIBC Europe Summit also saw 800 sponsors and exhibitors, 400 speakers and even a Crypto boat cruise! With the community’s growth, we’ve also seen the AIBC network expand to include even more of the pioneers and industry leaders of the emerging space work hand in hand with the summit to expand, educate and inspire an ever-growing audience.
WAGMI: the community that prospers
AIBC Summit prides itself on being the perfect launchpad. As the locus between investment and entrepreneurs, the conference prioritizes greasing the wheels of innovation by making capital meet bright pioneers willing to push the industry forward.
The AIBC Start-Up Pitch presents one hundred enterprising start-ups with the opportunity to acquire up to $500,000 in equity investment and a suite of other benefits including consultancy, a presence on the magazine and much more. Only the ten start-ups with the most potential will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to the panel of investors and only one will come out on top. Think you have what it takes to compete?

Our partnership with Ikigai Ventures, a venture capital firm with an eye towards emerging technologies, is also an invaluable presence when it comes to empowering entrepreneurs and letting them seize the reins of the future through innovation today. Their physical presence at the Summit via the Ikigai Lounge will allow venture capital to go above and beyond in terms of impact.
Beyond these, the presence of several enterprising investors, mainly C-level executives and angel investors, makes AIBC a hotspot for funding and investment by sheer proximity. We hold innovation and entrepreneurship close to heart as seek to incubate a culture of opportunity and enterprise wherever we go and fully invite our delegates to partake in this through networking opportunities both at the Summits and throughout the year.
The community with an eye on tomorrow
We live in a time of great transition. The advent of several frontier developments in the fields of productivity, financial technology, logistical support, social media and much much more are on the verge of overhauling society as we know it. With this in mind, each summit has a tailormade agenda tackling the most important and topic subjects in the global economic ecosystem.
With the sheer capital being funneled into the Metaverse and the potential of this field in the very near future, this agenda will map out the future of the Metaverse via panel discussions and keynotes from pioneering thought leaders within the space. This being said, we also have an eye towards AI, DAOs, Medical technology, online security, sustainability and content creation for a holistic lens on the economy of tomorrow.
As per usual, we never disappoint when it comes to the quality of our speakers. Our elite cadre of industry titans, enterprising pioneers and policy-writing experts are handpicked to be able to provide a holistic but far-reaching perspective on the future of the industry. Amongst these, we are proud to have ground-breakers such as Akon, John Karony, The Moon Carl, Nick Spanos and many many more as speakers at our summits with more entering the community’s orbit a we speak.
Hence, the summit is not only an opportunity but an open invitation for our delegates to join this ever-growing community with opportunities to network at the events, both formal and more informal, being present aplenty.
