Details on the Upcoming Global Block Builders ConferencesteemCreated with Sketch.

Greetings fellow Steemians! As some of you may have seen recently on the trending page, the Global Block Builders are holding a conference in Austin, Texas April 10-13 of this year. There are roughly 83 days left until the conference begins.

Our group initially started out as the Steem Creators in early 2018. We have since then morphed into the Global Block Builders which still consists of core Steem Creators members, as well as new leaders and speakers from other popular blockchains.

We are as the name implies, a global blockchain company dedicated to bringing together the brightest minds and the most popular venues, building the strongest blockchain-based community in the world. Our focus now is set on event planning and execution which we feel is what the blockchain community both wants and needs.

With that being said, the upcoming conference is our first official event representing this natural progression. Feel free to follow along at http://globalblockbuilders.com. The first two North American events were held is Las Vegas and Toronto, both of which had great turn outs in terms of head count. Austin, we believe, is going to raise the bar to a whole new level of excellence.

We have a phenomenal lineup of speakers from various walks of life that will share their wisdom and insights for everyone in attendance. Speakers such as Andrew Levine @andrarchy - Senior Content Director at Steemit Inc., Elizabeth Powell - Head of Communications and Advocacy at Steemit Inc., I.J. Maha @steemcafe - Founder of Global Block Builders, and Larry Morrison @larrymorrison - CEO of College Loan Freedom will be gracing the stage.

Right now we are in the process of adding more speakers to the lineup. If you feel like you have something to share such as a concept, an idea, or a project that would add value to the blockchain community at large, please fill out our speaker application here.

What to Expect When Attending GBB Events


We at Global Block Builders maintain a high standard of excellence throughout each phase of our events. When you make the decision to purchase a ticket and attend our event, we want to make sure that you get your money's worth once you arrive.

The evening before the event begins is reserved for the meet and greet session. People who get into town early can all hang out and get to know each other better before the conference officially kicks off. This is normally a laid-back atmosphere where there is no pressure or judgement present.

The conference itself is going to last 3 days, followed by a 4th day of fun and festivities. Wednesday the 10th through Friday the 12th will take place at the Coppertank Events Center right in the heart of downtown Austin. Speakers will be presenting both on the main stage and on the secondary stage. You will be filled to the brim with wisdom and know-how by the end of those 3 days.

Saturday the 13th is going to be a time for fellow blockchain enthusiasts to change the atmosphere up a bit and have some fun. The specific activities will be mentioned as we get closer to April. Overall, you can expect to have the time of your life alongside other tech savvy ladies and gentleman.

Hotel accommodations will be no trouble at all since Austin has an enormous amount of places to choose from. The Marriot, the Hilton, and even the KOA Campgrounds if you are the outdoorsy type. If you want to go with a more expensive stay, we recommend considering a roommate or 2 to split the cost of the room.

Night Life with Global Block Builders / Steem Creators


The conference itself is going to be held during the daytime Wednesday through Friday, which leaves the evenings open for night life. Are you someone who comes to life at night? Do you have so much energy that you can't control yourself? The night life might be something you want to check out.

For this conference, @maryjaney will be in charge of planning and coordinating the night life activities. We are not 100% sure what she has in store this time, but whatever it is, it's going to be a blast. At our last conference in Toronto, Canada, we had a live Steem Creators concert where different Steem artists came and performed on stage at a local venue. The energy in the room was off the charts.

Back in Las Vegas last year at our genesis event, we went Indoor Skydiving (yes, that is me in the red suit above) along side skydiving expert Carly @ogc. It was an absolutely incredible time and I'll never forget the memories had there. Also, every conference we find some way to entertain a Karaoke night of some sort. Do you sing? Are you terrible at singing? If you said yes to either of those questions, we definitely want you there!

Benefits of Attending Our Events


Attending a Global Block Builders event will be like nothing you've ever experienced before. One of the key benefits you will recieve while in person with us is true, face to face relationship building. Sometimes the cryptocurrency / blockchain space can start feel lonely now and then. Get to our events and get re-energized and uplifted. Get excited about your interests and take the time to share them with others who feel the same way.

Not only that, but you will receive world-class teaching from some of the leading minds in the blockchain industry. You will receive cutting-edge ideas, concepts, and strategies that will help take your game to a whole new level. Our goal is that you walk away from this event excited and equipped to take action once you get back home.

Events are where the magic happens. They are where opportunities open up and new partnerships are formed. The energy in the room is so electric that it's hard to leave once it's over. Now, the question left to answer is this... will we see you there? Will you save the date for April 10th-13th in Austin, Texas? Will I see you there and snap a selfie for you to own forever? (that's the real value of attending this event ;)

Bottom line, you will be very pleased upon deciding to join us in Austin. Great teaching, great food, great fun, and most of all, great people. Feel free to invite a friend or 2 to come with you! The more the merrier as it adds even more to the overall energy in the room. These events will change your life in a big way, and also in ways you don't even expect.


Thank you so much for reading! Stay tuned for future updates as we continue to build this event bigger and better for our attendees. I'm Ken Melendez, Director of Communications at Global Block Builders and cannot wait to hear from you in the comments below. Cheers.

Sir i am in gulf unable to join the event.but my curiosity towards the event thanks for supporting me for future .

Yes! Austin is going to be amazing. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there and meeting new people!

Is there a shift in Steem Creators to cover the entire blockchain space as opposed to solely focusing on the Steem blockchain @kenmelendez @steemcafe?

I figured that this move (changing the name to Global Block Builders) was a fail-safe since there is currently a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Steem blockchain, and I also think that the blockchain space as a whole is bigger than the Steem community by itself.

Thank you for everything that you two do in the Steem community, I'm always happy to see your updates @kenmelendez 😊

Yes, we are welcoming players from other blockchains to join our events. This will allow for greater and more widespread collaboration and relationships to be built in the worldwide crypto space.

I would definitely like to attend an event that was blockchain centered @kenmelendez, since it would introduce me to people that supported other blockchains and cryptocurrencies.

I am not very willing to research other blockchains or cryptocurrencies, since a lot of my time is dedicated to Steem, but if I were to meet other people who supported other blockchains / cryptocurrencies, and in person, I think we'd have great discussions and I'd learn a lot!

Sometimes it's easier and faster to learn about things through discussion as opposed to the standard approach of researching online.

You are welcome.

Dear @kenmelendez

I know that you delegated some SP to dstors. I'm not sure if you're aware that they seem to shut down their project lately. Just check out their profile and read latest post.

Guys from dstors didn't even bother to contact people who supported them. Such a shame. This project looked very promissing.

ps.
I was wondering if you would consider supporting my efforts in building a crypto community here on Steemit..

Since HF20 took place, myself, along with a few other active "Steemians" decided to put in extra effort into making our little community stronger. And community build mostly on mutual engagement and support instead of financial rewards.

I recently delegated over 3500 SP to a group of 80 active steemians who struggled with low RC levels (resource credit). And the results has been great so far. One of my latest posts reached over 800 comments, which I found insane

Those results are only proving that our efforts are worth something. The only thing is that I can only do "that much" with my current resources.

Perhaps you could consider supporting our efforts with some delegation? I would seriously appreciate your help.

Please let me know what do you think. I will appreciate every feedback, regardless of your decision.

Yours
Piotr

Hi @crypto.piotr. Yes, sadly dstors closed up shop. As far as your request, right now I am content with my delegations. That may change in the future and if it does I may reach out to you. Thanks 👍🏻
