    Hi All!! Really sorry about the last minute call for asking re-confirmation. All organizers are based in different cities and we got confused of the capacity limit of venue. The space capacity is 70 and we have 15 speakers & panels from 5 organization, and the eventbrite currently allowed more people than capacity limit booking 120 people (the capacity limit is legal issue, so we can't stretch it...). We really need your understanding about the capacity limit and cooperation for reconfirmation to make sure if the event wouldn't be illegal(?), the space not be unpleasantly packed and provide enough food and drinks for attendants. Please check your email and reconfirm your attendance, and really sadly we might email to some of last joiners on eventbrite.. :-( :-( :-(

    I have been asking around about Fire regulation and different spaces in the building for all week, but there's no other ways to increase the capacity.. Really sorry about this, and really look forward to meeting you!

    • Renat

      Hi Ilesh, it's that same event :) We changed the title as the topic and agenda are now being reviewed. Hope to have it all confirmed soon! Please stay tuned for some more changes.

      Really sorry I kept changing the title to encapsulate the contents better ;-( (really sorry about all confusion), there will be only ONE blockchain related event inside HSBC on the date!

  • Alex

    Be aware this now clashes with an already planned meetup of the exact same topic.

    2 · November 16

    • Yiseul C.

      because of competition over venue in December and to avoid overlap with xmas parties from mid Dec, we had to choose 6th as the date.. :-( hmm do you have the url for the event?
