Monday 6th Early start to catch the 7am train to Newport in Wales for the Digital 2016 conference and meet Robert Olsen, our new BizDev guy. Rob knows everyone in the space, and attends pretty much every event! A lot of the meetings we secured and people we were able to talk to over the next few days were largely down to him already knowing them, which saves me a lot of work obviously! Hosted in an impressive location, and spread over 2 floors, with 3 conference halls, Digital 2016 had a bit of everything. From the latest in entertainment devices, drone tech & robotics to digital currencies innovative software platforms and products, there was certainly something for everyone. Arriving at around mid-day I missed some of the morning talks, but the order of business was purely eMunie promotion and demonstration of the platform, including the decentralized debit cards. Had a few interesting meetings with various parties, including the head of security at Microsoft and a company called Zerado that are doing some really interesting stuff in this space. Highlight of the day was Vinay Gupta's talk which you can view here and is very interesting where he talks about the merging on Crypto, AI, AR/VR and IOT After his talk there was also a panel and being at the front, I found myself being prompted by the panel to answer some questions that they weren't 100% sure on the answers too. Which ultimately resulted in me being pulled from the audience, giving a quick impromptu speech on who I am and what I do, and then getting put onto the panel After this did a ton of networking and more demos, and got an invitation from Lara @ BBC Click to get in touch with a view to being on the show in the near future Unfortunately, I couldn't stay too long as I had to catch a train to London for PayExpo which started the next day, but all in all, Digital 2016 was very worth attending!
