Paris Blockchain Week Summit (PBWS) has announced Paris NFT Day, the largest European conference dedicated to NFTs with over 1500 attendees expected. Paris NFT Day will officially commence PBWS on April 12th, 2022 at Station F, the world’s largest startup campus.
The inaugural event will include a number of segments: an NFT-focused conference with global leaders from the digital assets industry; the first-ever physical event booth sold as an NFT unlocking priority access, discounts, resale royalties and more; a physical gallery showcasing community NFTs from digital artists such as Pascal Boyart, musician and artist Agoria, among others; and a virtual gallery giving a glimpse into art museums of the future. The event will also feature the very first Bored Ape Yacht Club MeetUp in France (for BAYC holders), and bid on and purchase NFTs at an auction hosted by BlackPool, a decentralized asset fund within the digital art industry.
Emmanuel Fenet, CEO at Paris Blockchain Week Summit commented:
"We are honored to host this progressive European NFT event in Paris, featuring key speakers, media attendees, and partners. NFTs gained tremendous traction in 2021, and are expected to see continuous growth in 2022 and beyond. The shift from Web2 to Web3 is finally here, and we cannot wait to facilitate the growth of different stakeholders in the industry."
With education and discovery highlighted as two principal entry barrier points among newcomers to the NFT space, Paris NFT Day will provide a specialized space for novices and veterans alike to learn from seasoned experts and foster connections within the worlds of crypto and art. Bringing together enterprise and consumer brands, blockchain developers, gamers, artists, investors, and fans, the event will enable unparalleled networking opportunities, providing greater insight into the use cases that underpin the growth of the digital asset landscape.
