The only congress in the MENA region to explore the opportunities and challenges of investing in digital currencies and assets.

The digital asset class has boomed into a 100$ billion market. 2017 saw investors experience enormous returns and many smaller retail investors have taken advantage of this opportunity, while the majority of sophisticated investors did not actively participate.

2018 was a year full of challenges and turbulences. 2019 started off with the digital asset market stabilizing and picking up. Is this is the year that will see a massive rebound in digital assets performance and it is the year of mass adoption of Blockchain technology?

Agora is hosting its third annual digital asset investor outlook event, the Global Blockchain Congress from June 17th to the 19th 2019 at the Sofitel Downtown, Dubai.

The first two editions of the Global Blockchain congress were a tremendous success and we were able to host more than 200 investors and 50 ICOs/STOs and were able to raise more than 100$ Million in funds for our participating projects.

Join us in June for this year for another event focused on investment. At the center of the digital asset class, Agora’s Global Blockchain Congress Investment Opportunities brings +100 institutional investors, hedge funds, high network individuals, venture capitalists, private equity firms, family offices and asset managers together and offers attendees the chance to get connected with how to invest, store, trade and judge value in this new asset class.

Ultimately, attendees will walk away with a richer idea of what to expect beyond 2019.
