The 4th annual instalment of the leading NFT industry event takes place from June 20-23 – and it’s set to be the biggest one yet!

It’s time for the NFT community to take over New York City once again.

From June 20-23, NFT.NYC – the leading annual event for the NFT industry – will be taking place in the Big Apple. Over 15,000 attendees, 1,500 approved speakers and 300 exhibitors will descend on 7 iconic Times Square venues – including Radio City Music Hall, the Edison Ballroom and the NYC Marriot Marquis – for a gathering like no other.

With the world’s media looking on, exhibitors, attendees and speakers alike will be able to meet, network and forge new partnerships with some of the biggest names in the industry and beyond.

Alongside this year’s list of confirmed speakers – including Ryan Wyatt (CEO of Polygon), Randi Zuckerberg (Brand Advisor at Okcoin) and Romain Grosjean (ex-F1 driver) – are WAX’s CEO William Quigley and AtomicHub’s COO Jona Wilmsmann.

Over 1,500 approved speakers are confirmed for NFT.NYC, including WAX CEO William Quigley.

Tickets for NFT.NYC are now sold out, but don’t fret – there’s hundreds of side-events taking place in NYC both during and after the main event, giving those in the area plenty of opportunities to converse with the best and brightest people and projects around. More on that later this week!

It’s not your typical event – all suits, ties and seriousness. Think a celebration of the industry like no other, where industry giants and humble collectors stand side-by-side to revel in the latest technologies, witness brand-new innovations, and make real-world connections that cross the blockchain space.

Times Square is often called “the crossroads of the world”, and with the who’s who of Web3 heading there next week, that statement has never been truer. Whether you’re bullish on blockchain or an NFT newbie, this is one event you simply won’t want to miss. 

The 2nd Annual NFT Awards will also take place at NFT.NYC.

Opinion

I’ll be heading to NFT.NYC next week, representing both NFT Insider and AtomicHub – and I’m super-excited for it all. It’ll be the first time, outside of the pink.gg team, that I get to see our global community in person, and I’m looking forward to seeing as many of you as I can. If you’re heading there too – whether as a collector, influencer, project leader or otherwise – reach out to me via Discord.

Expect plenty of exclusive content to be released over the coming weeks as I endeavour to stick my camera in the face of, and speak to, as many people in NYC as I can!

On a more general note, these conferences are crucial for making those all-important connections that drive our industry forwards. It’s the scheduled chats, off-hand conversations and chance meetings taking place in NYC that will shape the very future of the NFT space.

For the blockchain industry, this is where the magic happens.
