FLAIA will be hosting its second annual Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Forum on April 30 – May 1, 2019 at the iconic Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event will kick off on April 30th with a table talks series. Talks brings together thought leaders in the alternative industry to discuss a variety of topics table side. This unique and successful event format deconstructs the traditional conference format by bringing the experts off the panels to individual interactive tables. Each table is co-hosted by an industry expert and an allocation professional. Attendees select five of our available topics for their round-table discussions. A cocktail reception will follow the sessions.

The conference continues on May 1st with a full day of panels and presentations from an array of top-flight technology gurus. The event will gather asset managers, investors and global thought-leaders to discuss key market developments, including initial coin offerings, bitcoin futures, and ETF’s.
