  • Why go to NFT events?
  • The top NFT events & conferences to attend in 2022

Are you searching for the best NFT events to attend in 2022?

NFT events and conferences are excellent ways to meet the frens that have been behind the avatars you interact with across Discord. They can also be great ways to seek new projects, thought leaders, great parties, and chances to get exclusive mints IRL are just some of the upsides to attending an NFT conference.

Plus, there is nothing more rewarding than meeting fellow community members and possibly finding new projects, investment opportunities, or exclusive mints

To make it happen, the team at Supplain have created this NFT guide for the major blockchain, crypto, NFT conferences and events for 2022. 
 

Why go to NFT events?

NFT events are essential for blockchain professionals and crypto enthusiasts, whether virtual or in-person. Attending NFT conferences is the foremost way to keep informed of the latest industry trends and network with others you've met in crypto communities. 

Plus, NFT events present new blockchain and web 3.0 technologies that professionals harness the business potential for further industry collaboration. 

With NFT conferences and events on a hiatus due to pandemic restrictions, 2022 will change all that. Many NFT events intend to plan IRL shows.
