The Exchange

TNW’s exclusive venue in London, only for business pass holders.



At The Exchange, decision makers come together to form new partnerships and expand their network. You’ll have the opportunity to join our roundtable discussions and listen to big industry names. Together, we’ll answer the unanswered questions of the industry and discuss the future of blockchain.

Featured speakers include Dominik Schiener (Co-Founder of IOTA), Kavita Gupta (Founding Managing Partner of Consensys), and Yoni Assia (CEO of eToro). Our speakers will delve into topics such as regulation, mass adoption, and sustainability.

Hosted at the beautiful citizenM Tower of London, it’s the perfect venue to interact with speakers, partners, investors, and vendors. TNW will also hold an after hours cocktail event called CryptoNight.

You can be a part of The Exchange with a business pass ticket – come join us at CloudM (7th floor).
