Three Hits and Counting ...
During 2016 and 2017, The Blockchain Conference division of Lighthouse Partners produced three world-class executive events, each of which highlighting the promise of blockchain, distributed ledger and smart contracts technologies as a platform for the future of business while also pointing to the realities and challenges of rolling out this transformational technology.

The Blockchain Conference 2016
The debut - eponymous - The Blockchain Conference took place in February 2016 and is widely regarded as the very first business-oriented and professional-standard blockchain conference ever produced.
Keynoting the day was John Wolpert, then IBM's first global blockchain offering manager. It was the first time that IBM commented in a public forum about its interest in blockchain technology, even preceding its membership of the Linux Foundation's Hyperledger initiative.
