The Tomorrow Conference 2022 was a hit. More than 21 000 people all, from over the world, took part in the three-day event, held at the Belgrade’s Belexpocentar, from May 13th to 15th.
Whether at the venue or online, the participants had the chance to watch dozens of speakers, in what is already considered to be the biggest Crypto, NFT and Metaverse conference in Europe.
In a note released by the organization, Zoran Tadic, the Tomorrow Conference program director said to be hard to “find the right words to express my excitement and gratefulness to everyone who was part of the conference, who believed in this conference held for the first time in this part of Europe. Now I can say – it was the best. Past three days we could enjoy more than 50 speakers, seven panels; 6 000 people have visited three stages while more than 15 000 people have watched the conference online”.
The event counted with some of the leading global experts, speaking about the blockchain, cryptocurrencies, “mining” and investments.
That seems good, right? But there’s more.
Tomorrow Conference 2022: a 3-day overview
Simply put: it was a blast.
To start, the opening ceremony was close to a futuristic spectacle, with plenty of special effects, lasers, drones, pyrotechnics, and even someone wearing an astronaut suit to welcome the crowd.
The Tomorrow Confere 2022 program also included Nenad Paunovic, a representative of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, who pointed out how the country is fully aware of the cryptocurrency market and is now starting to create regulations for it.
Bruno Ver, a Belgian investor and blockchain expert, spoke about how cryptocurrencies and NFTs are the future and the need for clear business and tax regulations.
The highlight of the event was probably the panel on Metaverse, a first in Europe (second in the world), which presented the latest trends and standouts on NFTs. The session had Vitomir Jevremović, CEO of All Art and SolSea, wearing a VR headset on stage while connecting to several speakers located around the world and displayed as avatars to discuss the hot topics around NFTs.
Joel Dietz, Frank Fitzgerald, Laura K. Inamedinov, Aleksandar Matanovic, Joel Dietz, David Bundi and others fulfilled the program for the second day, speaking about Metaverse (of course!), the “tendencies of merging the physical world with virtual reality and what consequences it could bring to the global community”, and the “Impact, Opportunities and Regulatory Considerations”. Dusan Kovacevic, founder and CEO of Exit, put an end to the second-day program, presenting the panel “Can the Music Industry go to Metaverse Altogether?”, and introduced the Exit NFT collection created with the DJ superstar Maceo Plex. The day came to an end with a party at the Belexpo centre, with Maceo Plex rocking the crowd.
Finally, on the third day, Marko Suvajdzić, assistant director at the Florida University, spoke about the blockchain and how the art world has entered this so-called technology revolution. “So far, the blockchain technology has been accepted by the leaders in the finance, computer science, transport, accounting, to bring efficiency, transparency and added value to their services”, he said.
With no surprise, NFTs were one of the main highlights of the event.
Goran Segedinac gave the participants some important clues on recognising a quality NFT project. “Maybe it is not easy to detect the authors of the currently most valuable NFTs, but you can recognize the quality by four parameters: does the collection owns its identity, does it create users experience, is the community involved in the project development, does the project team delivers the product after minting and does it use the financial resources for the further development”, he said.
Craig Sellars, the Tether cryptocurrency founder, ended the event with the panel “Decentralize Yourself” about the digital identity in the future where he stated that the “value of an individual is the most important in the digital world. All other platforms want to own your data, but here that’s not the case. You own your information; and if someone asks for it, you can charge for it”.
Tomorrow Conference 2023: let the countdown begin
Undoubtedly, the Tomorrow Conference 2022 was a hit. Thousands of people were there to testify to the magnificence of the event. It promised a lot and it delivered for sure.
Portugal was also represented, by Wise Pirates. The northern company has been focusing on the metaverse subject and couldn’t miss the chance.
For now, the Tomorrow Conference 2022 has come to an end, but all eyes are not set on 2023, more precisely, May 2023.
