Liechtenstein will see two high-profile (crypto) finance events this year: The Finance Forum Liechtenstein and the CCA Token Summit. But both events had to be delayed due to the coronavirus.
Finance Forum Liechtenstein
This year’s Finance Forum Liechtenstein is the sixth edition of the event, which is one of the most high-profile finance events in the German-speaking region.
The event was initially planned for 11th March but had to be delayed for “several weeks,” according to the organizers. The new date was set for September 1st.
The event features prominent speakers from Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and Germany. The entry fee is CHF 450. As in the last years, the event organizers expect around 600 guests from within finance, academics, politics, business, and the non-profit sector.
This year’s forum is themed “The Future of Finance” and includes presentations, round tables, workshops, and networking opportunities. Among the speaker are Joschka Fischer, the former German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Romeo Lacher, Chairman of Julius Baer, Sabine Keller-Busse, COO at UBS, and Liechtenstein’s Prime Minister Adrian Hasler.
Prior to the conference, participants can attend various workshops free of charge. Topics include blockchain, sustainability, investment strategies with gold, and legal and tax innovations. After the conference, there will be an opportunity to network and exchange experiences.
Although the Finance Forum Liechtenstein is not explicitly a blockchain or crypto event but covers financial industry topics in general, digitalization and tokenization will certainly form a vital part of the discussion. This is in part due to Liechtenstein being a top spot for digital and decentralized finance.
CCA Token Summit Liechtenstein
For those who want something “more crypto,” there is the CCA Token Summit Liechtenstein which will take place on 20th of August (not on 26th March as initially planned). The event is organized by the Crypto Country Association (CCA), which is Liechtenstein’s leading crypto and blockchain industry association. It will also take place in Vaduzer Saal from 8 Am to 6 Pm at an entry fee of CHF 450.
The conference will be held in English and focus on regulatory approaches for the token economy, AML, KYC, CFT, and taxation within the token economy, the tokenization of assets, and security token offerings. Thus, the event is particularly interesting for regulators, policymakers, consultants, and tax advisors.
Among the event speakers are Prime Minister Adrian Hasler, Patrick Bont from the Financial Market Authority Liechtenstein (FMA), Dr. Thomas Dünser from the Office for Financial Center Innovation, Blockchain Lawyer Thomas Naegele, Philipp Sandner from the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center, and many more.
Apart from presentations and panel discussions, event participants can experience the things they hear on stage in a real-life, on-site working ecosystem. They can create and use their own tokens in workshops guided by blockchain professionals while getting an understanding of the regulatory requirements and the technical aspects involved in token generation.
Both events are well worth visiting, with the first being more finance-centered and the second being more of a blockchain industry event. Companies that are interested in Liechtenstein as a prime location for blockchain, crypto, and Fintech, should not miss those dates.
