On 7 and 8 April 2017 CoinfestUK opens its doors at the Manchester Conference Centre in the UK. Reddheads.com will be attending the event on 7 April.
CoinfestUK is part of the wider International Coinfest annual event. Between 3 and 9 April 2017 diverse presentations and conferences will be held in locations all over the world. On Friday evening (GMT) the communities participating in these events will be able to come together to watch presentations and talks at an International Hangout. From the Coinfest website:
“The International Hangout unites CoinFest events around the world with joint presentations. Speakers present virtually to audiences watching simultaneously on projector screens. Participation links will be given to the organizers, and viewing links to the general public.”
