NFT.NYC 2023: Everything You Need To Know
The 5th edition of the world’s largest NFT industry event takes place from April 12-14 – and there’s plenty to sink your teeth into!
It’s time for the NFT community to take over NYC once again!
From April 12-14, NFT.NYC – the leading annual event for the NFT industry – will take place in New York City. Moving from Times Square to the North Javits convention centre, over 6,000 attendees are expected (a decline from last year’s 15,000+ attendees) alongside 1,500+ speakers, 500+ brands and 100+ exhibitors.
Included in this year’s list of confirmed speakers are Yat Siu (Chairman of Animoca Brands), Chris Schlosser (SVP Emerging Ventures at MLS) and Dave Torres (VP Digital Experience at Macy’s), alongside AtomicHub‘s Co-Founder Jona Wilmsmann, CRO Jeffrey Haas, BD Lead Martin Harder – and myself!
What is NFT.NYC?
NFT.NYC is the world’s leading NFT industry event. Founded on the principle of giving the community a voice, the event is packed with keynotes, panels, exhibitors and more, featuring leading personnel from both inside and outside of web3.
Alongside the buzz of the main event, NFT.NYC is also known for its wide array of side events and afterparties. 2022 saw impressive experiences from Doodles, Cool Cats, Goblintown and more – and despite ApeFest’s departure and the reduced attendance, this year promises more of the same.
As in previous years, the 2023 edition puts the spotlight on artists, showcasing over 2,000 artists across the Times Square billboards, galleries and the on-site Artist’s Village – but as web3 gaming becomes the tour de force for blockchain this year, expect plenty of games to be on show too.
