[Grant] REIMAGINE 2020, ICON Virtual Conference

  1. Title
    REIMAGINE 2020, ICON Virtual Conference

  2. Project Category
    Conference, screen time

  3. Project Description
    Due to that fact, and our understanding of our reach we decided to launch a virtual conference. See the Foundation tweeting about it here.
    Since April 10th here is what happened:

  • We have enrolled over 100+ partners and universities
  • With BlockTV’s distribution (we are taking over the site for 1+ months) and our post-conference strategy, this content will reach 5+ million views
  • Over 5000 people have registered between Eventbrite and Facebook (with 21 days to go, we expect 20,000 people registered)
  • We have invested $70,000 to professionally produce this 72-hour event with BlockTV
  • We believe we have surpassed Cointelegraph and Consensus in reach and production quality.
  • We believe this is the #1 conference in crypto currently.

MouseBelt will invest over $70k+ into this event. We would like to have fellow P-Reps invest $20k (this will go 100% to BlockTV production cost).

The benefit to the ICON community will be:

  • Owning 20% of the conference “screen time” at a 50% discount
  • Increased exposure to over 100+ top universities working on blockchain
  • Partnership with Anheuser-Busch InBev, and Coca Cola for one of our hackathon events (or similar).
  • We are open to adding as many additional benefits as possible as we are a part of the ICON community

This is an exciting conference idea because of move to virtual world with global pandemic. However, we think this should be something that block rewards are paying for and it is a good initiative lead by mousebelt that can lead to more votes for your team if it helps ICON Ecosystem a lot.
