Nearly one month ago, we learned that Central Europe was slated to get their own bitcoin expo (dubbed the Central European Bitcoin Expo) in Vienna, Austria. That report indicated the event would be taking place at ACV, Austria Center Vienna (very original, we know).
There seems to be a change of plans.
Bitcoin news website Bitcoinist is reporting that there has been a change of venue for the event. The new location is purported to be Technische Universität Wien (Vienna University of Technology, also known as TU Wien).
“Many attendees suggested the conference should have a better location in the city,” said Andrej Sebesta, event manager for the expo. “We also tried to find a place that would be closer to a club where the Bitcoin Party takes place. At the same time TU Wien decided to support our event and we went to see the Universities grounds. Location is great with beautiful surroundings right in the middle of the city, so from that point we knew we had to change the place.”
The location does seem fitting.
Technische Universität Wien serves as Austria’s premier technical institution, with the possibility for a growing interest in bitcoin and other crypto-currencies.
The expo will feature speakers such as ZeroBlock co-founder Dan Held, Bitcoin Magazine co-founder Vitalik Buterin, and former BitInstant CEO Charlie Shrem.
Entry to the event begins at 7:30 am on Saturday, May 31st at the University.
