DELTA Summit


During 2018, Malta lead the charge in regulating the blockchain industry and is now well on its way to regulating new technology niches falling under the Digital Innovation sector. In 2018 this presented an opportunity for the organising of the first official Blockchain Conference to happen in Malta. This year the DELTA brand will be delving further into the Digital innovation space and expanding its remit further to Artificial Intelligence, Internet of things and the vast and exciting world of ESPORTS.


DELTA Summit 2019

The aim of DELTA was always to expose the innovative legislation and opportunities not only to the locals currently residing in Malta are benefitting from, but also to the entire global community.

This conference has served and will serve as a marketing platform for Malta as the innovator and ideal hub for companies seeking to establish themselves in the mentioned space, as well as individuals who are intrigued by the technology and its opportunities.

DELTA will also serve to be a platform to promote the technology, the business opportunities related, the legal platform adopted by the government and will serve as a congregation for enthusiasts, doubters and experts.

The 2019 version of DELTA Summit aims to create an even greater global debate on the subject and to further expose the efforts of the Maltese government in establishing Malta as the pioneering blockchain nation.

What They Have to Say

DELTA Summit, held October 3-5, is recognized as Malta’s first official blockchain conference. The summit “aims to generate and promote a global cryptocurrency discussion” and “highlight the government’s efforts to establish Malta as a pioneering and blockchain embracing country.”


“The recent Delta Summit [October 3-5] showed how well Malta has positioned itself already. It delivered great content from top-notch speakers and attracted the global community to join. It was packed and for me THE blockchain event of the year to date.”, “Delta Summit, which was convened at the start of October, which was attended by a little over 4,000 attendees from far and wide.”


“DELTA Summit was the first in a series of conferences that take place on the “island” several times a month. More than 3500 attendees, 200 exhibitors, 100 speakers and tons of media attention.”

Future Times

“At the forefront of this nation wise push towards DLT and high tech innovations is Abdalla Kablan, an entrepreneur, researcher, and academic, who is also an advisor, to the Maltese government on technology, particularly DLT and artificial intelligence. He was among the many industry experts at Malta’s DELTA summit event in October 2018 where the country showcased all it has to offer the blockchain sector. Kablan was CEO of this high profile event where he outlined Malta’s work to become the global pioneer for the exciting cutting edge technology.”


“For the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the U.S. has Las Vegas. For blockchain technology and sweet new startups, Malta, aka “Blockchain Island,” has the #DELTASummit. So in a sense, the DELTA Summit has become the CES of blockchain technology” “The relevance of Malta and the #DELTASummit is that it offers enthusiasts and entrepreneurs in the space and avenue to meet, innovate and hence, they are not waiting around for governments to do the work of regulation. There are enough people and even governments enthusiastic enough to both adopt it, invest in it and to push for proper regulation” Don’t miss this the 2019 edition of DELT Summit October 2019.
