The Inventors & Pioneers Evening Reception

On Friday night, May 27, join the GBA community for one of their fabled networking events, The Inventors & Pioneers Evening Reception.

The inventors and pioneers of the Industrial Revolution created the fabric of the U.S. and Great Britain in the 18th and 19th centuries. Tremendous gains in science and technology helped Britain become the world’s dominant economic and political power, while in the U.S. inventors and pioneers fueled a young nation’s westward expansion, inspiring a spirit of freedom and entrepreneurship.

Today, inventors and pioneers from all around the world are making their mark on history with the utilization of blockchain technology. As the foundations are being laid, these innovative mavericks will impact the next century.

The Inventors & Pioneers Evening Reception will have a Steampunk and Wild-West-inspired Industrial Revolution atmosphere. This fully-catered reception will be held on the 2-deck rooftop of the Capitol View 400, overlooking the monuments of Washington DC in the flowering spring. With the lower deck lit up for dancing and socializing, the upper deck will provide the perfect setting to shake hands and make the deals of the next industrial revolution.

Tickets are on sale now at the  Early Bird price of $149. Ticket prices will go up on May 1.
