In an announcement of the event, the organizers stated, “Bitcoin 2022 will bring together company founders, c-suite executives, bitcoin holders, and industry experts to fulfill their mission of mass bitcoin adoption and hyperbitcoinization.”
The 2021 event attracted 12,000 visitors, generating an estimated $3.3M in local economic impact, they said. Bitcoin 2022 is expected to attract “an even larger attendance next year, perhaps as many as 30k and including a huge international draw.”
“Bitcoin 2021 was extremely successful, bringing over 12,000 industry leaders and experts to Miami, where they spent an entire week celebrating the bitcoin industry and enjoying all of the amazing food, art, and entertainment South Florida has to offer,” said David Bailey, CEO of BTC Inc., organizer of the Bitcoin 2022 Conference. “The Miami Beach Convention Center is the perfect place to host next year’s Bitcoin Conference. It will be bigger and better than ever, and we expect Bitcoin 2022 to be our most successful event yet.” It will be held April 6-9.
“The Bitcoin 2022 Conference adds to a great portfolio of signature events taking place in Miami Beach,” said William Talbert, President and CEO of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB). “Their commitment to moving the event to the Miami Beach Convention Center is proof positive that the significant investments made to the convention center have been worthwhile and the economic impact of these events to our community cannot be overstated.”
Other major events coming back to the Convention Center include Art Basel Miami Beach and the Miami International Boat Show.
