Messe Frankfurt Middle East invites you to their event

How is blockchain mitigating Covid-19 related supply chain disruption?

About this event

The session has been designed to illustrate the role that blockchain based solutions can play in accelerating effective post-pandemic digital transformation initiatives.

While true-believers have always maintained that the technology can positively aid supply chain networks, it’s taken the disruption of Covid-19 to reignite interest in blockchain to a wider mainstream audience.

Advocates insist that blockchains give users not only a high-degree of data visibility but also end-to-end transaction security and accuracy.

The webinar content will focus on the role the technology will play in reinventing supply chain networks over next 12-24 months (including enhancing decision-making, reducing fraud and theft, cutting bureaucracy and improving identity affirmation)

Key talking points to be addressed will cover:

  • The need for connected and integrated supply chains
  • Blockchain’s potential to create a better supply system and network
  • How robust and effective is UAE blockchain ecosystem?
  • Best practice examples from across the region (build transparent, inter-operable and connective networks)
