Given the excitement around blockchain technology and the growing number of projects coming out of the Middle East, it is crucial for financial institutions to stay ahead of the game when building their blockchain strategic road map. Recent advancements such as project Abeer between the Central Bank of UAE and SAMA, and the world’s first blockchain Sukuk transaction completed by Al Hilal Bank have heightened the position of the Middle East globally and placed the region in an ambitious spot with a strategic plan for blockchain adoption. This year BFC is coming to the Middle East to help advance the adoption of blockchain within financial services and to help financial institutions to capitalize on this technology.

Delegates will learn the most effective ways to advance this technology and streamline blockchain adoption within their business.
