Presenting both an introduction to blockchain and detailed use cases from the industry, the masterclass will provide attendees with a deeper understanding of how blockchain and distributed ledger technology are impacting the supply chain ecosystem and what this means for your business.

The masterclass will bring together supply chain finance professionals and industry disruptors in an active discussion of the key opportunities and challenges:

  • Using blockchain technology to create value for their customers
  • Overcoming regulatory and legal constraints
  • Working towards a standardisation
