The fifth annual Bermuda Tech Summit, presented by the Bermuda Business Development Agency, will have the theme “Building a Foundation for the Future”.

The event will run from October 8 to 10 at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

David Hart, BDA chief executive, said: “Due in no small part to the regulatory certainty that Bermuda provides, we continue to attract some of the world’s most notable tech companies to our shores, increasing direct investment and creating exciting new career paths for Bermudians.

“Organising the Bermuda Tech Summit aligns with the ‘business attraction and investment promotion’ priority from the Bermuda Economic Development Strategy and has a direct connection to the climate risk finance, blue economy, fintech and insurtech initiatives.”

The BDA said the summit agenda aimed to raise awareness of Bermuda’s digital asset framework, showcase the ongoing work to establish blue and green investment facilities, and raise awareness of Bermuda’s innovation sandbox and option to beta test clean tech solutions and initiatives in support of the Ministry of Economy and Labour’s 2023-2027 Economic Development Strategy.

Panels will include: The Transformative Power of Artificial Intelligence; Fintech’s New Wave (Buy, Build or Modernise); Bermuda’s Journey to Becoming Climate Tech Central; and Insuring Continuity – Safeguarding the Future of Digital Assets.

Additional topics will include climate tech, data privacy, carbon credit trading platforms, and pioneering digital assets.

Confirmed speakers include: George Alayon, deputy director, supervision (insurance), Bermuda Monetary Authority; Martin Carrica, founder, Nalu; Cha’Von Clarke-Joell, assistant privacy commissioner, Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Bermuda; Karamoko Dickens, founder, Conci Bermuda; Eric Donkoh, head of data science and artificial intelligence, BMA; Troy Dort, director, IT advisory, KPMG; Moad Fahmi, senior adviser, supervision (fintech), BMA; Robert M Franklin III, venture partner, Masters Fund; Stuart Lacey, independent director, BDA; Paul McLeod, CEO, Bespoke Analytics; Nick Muller, CEO, TriFi Bermuda; Eugene Phillips, CEO, CCS Bermuda; Sandra Ro, CEO, Global Blockchain Business Council; Stan Stalnaker, founding director and chief strategy officer, Hub Culture; Zac Townsend, cofounder, Meanwhile; and Darren Wolfberg, cofounder, Blockchain Triangle.

Mr Hart added: “Without the generous support of our sponsors, we could not put on this in-person event and we are so pleased to announce that our first sponsors have also come on board.

“Relm is our diamond sponsor and will sponsor another legendary closing party; Appleby, Carey Olsen, CCS Group Limited and XBTO are platinum sponsors; Hub Culture, KPMG, and One Communications are gold level sponsors; and Chainproof is a silver sponsor.”

Potential delegates are encouraged to take advantage of early bird registration prices until August 21.

The summit is the signature event of Bermuda Tech Week, which is being held from October 7 to 13.
