Gem’s Consensus 2017 Event Round Up

We are fast approaching the opening day for Consensus 2017 and I am so excited to be attending for the first time as a member of the Gem team. With so much going on at Consensus, I am very lucky to get the inside scoop on all the must-attend events in 2017 from the blockchain veterans in my office.

I've taken a peek into my co-workers' calendars to see what they're up to and compiled a round up of the events that we'll be attending. For those of you attending the conference, we hope we get a chance to meet you and to connect face to face. See you in New York!
