Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
Bitcoin Expo 2014
The first-ever Bitcoin Expo is a three-day extravaganza event focused on Bitcoin community building, and featuring prominent speakers, guests and attendees from around the world. The expo will provide unique opportunities for businesses, consumers, entrepreneurs, developers, innovators, and the curious general public to connect. It also will play host to an art exhibit and auction, and a hackathon on the next generation of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency applications, technologies and services. This conference is organized as a non-profit event, with proceeds going to fund the Bitcoin Alliance of Canada’s programs and initiatives.
