The D2 Summit: Where Finance and Tech Leaders Can Tackle Web 3.0

Corporate executives are prioritizing digital transformation — even ahead of tackling market and economic instability and accelerating growth for their businesses, according to a new survey conducted by Decentralization Deciphered (D2), a subsidiary of Emerald Holding, Inc.

The rapid emergence and dominance of Web 3.0 in tech and industry conversations undoubtedly is impacting digital transformation plans, as brands and retailers strive to adapt to new customer behaviors and expectations. While many have seen the words “Web 3.0,” “blockchain” and even NFTs in the headlines, there is still more to learn about these topics and the overall decentralized finance (DeFi) space. Few executives may truly understand how these technologies are impacting their business strategies and investments, so The D2 Summit was formed to foster an open forum for technology and finance leaders to converge and discuss the implications of the booming Web 3.0 space.

CEOs, CIOs, CFOs and other executives involved in Web 3.0, digital assets, blockchain, the metaverse and other related technologies can now request an invitation to attend The D2 Summit, which is taking place Oct. 18-19, 2022, at Convene One Liberty Plaza in New York City. The agenda is designed to hit on all the core issues surrounding this space, from cybersecurity to finance and customer experience. Speakers include:

  • John Liu, Head of Product, Web3 & Blockchain, Amazon Web Services
  • Shirley Gao, Chief Information Officer, PacSun
  • Farhan Memon, Vice President/Digital Asset Security, Mastercard
  • Michelle Grant, Director, Retail and Consumer Goods, Salesforce
  • Willayna Banner, Head of Web3/Blockchain, Microsoft
  • Cody Carbone, Chief Policy Officer, Chamber of Digital Commerce
  • Jason Schwartz, Tax Partner/Head of Digital Assets & Blockchain, Fried Frank

As a subsidiary of Emerald Holding, Inc. and sister brand to D2 Summit, Retail TouchPoints also will be involved in the event to offer insights into how the Web 3.0 environment is impacting retail industry priorities. VP of Content Alicia Esposito will moderate a panel featuring Michelle Grant of Salesforce and Chris Silver, Co-founder of BambuMeta, that will focus on the impact NFTs will have on brand experiences and customer loyalty.
