What is the Cardano Summit London 2023?

The Cardano Summit is the annual Cardano conference bringing together the Cardano ecosystem to celebrate progress and to look to future ideas.

There will be one main summit in Dubai, with community-led events being funded by the Cardano Foundation in over 20 locations across the world.

Similar to last year, anyone could apply to host a community-led event alongside the main summit, and Upstream was again lucky enough to be selected to host!

Keep watch for venue and speaker details at the Upstream twitter page.

When is it?

We will be holding the London event on Saturday 4th November, and are currently planning to start around midday.
