Zigurat at 2019 Blockchain Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam


Zigurat participated with a stand at Europe’s largest Blockchain Conference and Exhibition that focused on the future of enterprise technology. On June 19-20, Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre became Europe’s blockchain epicenter offering top-level content from leading brands, embracing and developing cutting edge blockchain technologies. At the stand of Zigurat, the visitors had the chance to learn more about Zigurat’s Innovation & Technology Business School and our educational offer, which also includes Master’s in Blockchain Technologies, Global MBA in Digital Business, Master’s in Global Smart City Manager and Master´s in Global BIM Management.  Being the only educational institution to introduce its academic proposal, Zigurat was well received by the Dutch and international public who assisted the conference. The Master’s in Blockchain Technologies stole the limelight as the visitors recognized various professors of the master’s for their expertise in the subject. We also had the occasion to meet some of the current participants of the master’s program, like Vincent Van Dongen who works for ABN AMRO Bank as an Agile Business Developer.  If you’re further interested in the course of the conference check out some of the media response to the expo: The Block, Blockchain Technology News, Crypto News Weekly podcast (also available on Spotify).
