Join us for the first edition of FOUNDATION events FOR SUPPLY CHAIN

Supply chain logistics is the first economic engine of South Florida. Miami doesn’t manufacture much but moves more good than any other city in the US in transit to or from the Caribbean, South America and far east Asia with the enlargement of the Panama Canal.

In the 21st century technologies will completely transform a sector experiencing a complete digital makeover.

In the effort of promoting Florida as a tech hub, The Florida Blockchain Foundation brings the best technologies to our local industry.

This initiative will bridge for the first time big and medium size players of an industry with the most advanced and disruptive players in the field of digital ledger technologies. FOUNDATION SUPPLY CHAIN 2.0 will be an immersive event into blockchain but not only. We will review most of the technologies that will transform supply chain.

Discover the vast Blockchain applications and business cases, meet the professionals already implementing successful solutions in the field, learn about compliance and regulations. We have curated the most relevant projects and hands-on professional who will share their experience on real-world issues and the solutions that blockchain and other technologies can provide.

In the panels professional will discuss the technologies transforming the industry in an open mic conversation with Q&A from the audience.
