Why use Cryptocurrencies in the Meetings Industry?
Cryptocurrencies are coming to the meeting industry. The world’s top performing companies are leading the way by showing greater acceptance towards the use and normalisation of digital currencies. They are adopting the latest technological advancements as a way to set themselves apart from their fewer brave competitors. At Congrex Switzerland we are exemplifying the movement towards the meetings industry and towards the future of payment for conference registration and services.

This not only saves money and time but also offers the opportunity for payments in regions, where no banking system is at one’s disposal.
