About Blockchain Central

Powered by the Global Blockchain Business Council, “Blockchain Central” is the premier venue at Davos for all things blockchain. As the destination for VIP cocktail hours, curated roundtables, private dinners, and technology demonstrations, in 2018, it was the hub for blockchain partnership facilitation.

In January 2019, from January 21st through January 25th, the GBBC will return to Davos for its third year of programming. Located steps from the Congress Center on the Promenade, the GBBC’s “Blockchain Central” lounge will be seen by thousands of participants in the World Economic Forum meeting each day.

Inside, we will bring together the leading voices in this groundbreaking field to create unmatched opportunities for innovators, especially GBBC’s current (and potential) institutional members, to collaborate with policymakers and business leaders from around the world.
