“This year’s conference is incredibly timely,” said Sean Stapley, Penrose Partners. “Attendees and speakers will discuss how the digital asset industry can move forward by building stronger and more resilient ecosystems.

The International Technology Summit will bring together innovators, regulators, and executives from Canada, the United States (US), Bermuda, India, the United Kingdom (UK), and other countries, to explore the latest breakthroughs in blockchain, artificial intelligence, and fintech.

“I’m excited to return to Bermuda for this seminal event, to explore the rich tech ecosystem that’s evolving out of the territory’s innovative approach to the regulation of digital assets and related technologies,” added Michael Casey from CoinDesk.

This year’s event includes numerous interactive panel discussions that will address key elements across building core infrastructure through bear markets, the regulation and evolution of DeFi and digital assets, and what the future of insurance will look like. The day will close out with a fireside conversation between The Hon. E. David Burt, JP, MP; Premier of Bermuda, and CoinDesk Chief Content Officer, Michael Casey, at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess.

On April 12, the Government of Bermuda’s Economic Development Department and the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation will co-host a career fair and community education day alongside Penrose Partners. Local startups, international tech leaders, and investors will gather at the Ignite incubator in Hamilton to better understand the many opportunities through which to capitalize on economic growth and local tech adoption.

Thursday April 13th will feature a virtual startup pitch competition globally connecting founders and investors, followed by leisure activities, networking, and an outdoor afterparty on Friday the 14th.

Penrose invites technologists, futurists, and investors in Bermuda and from around the world to join the conference to discuss the benefits of emerging technologies—not just for businesses and governments —but for our overall social, economic, and environmental sustainability.
