A Global Crypto Gathering

Free to attend, multi-track for beginners to OGs 

The countdown to CoinFest


2021 will see CoinFestUK 5th event!

CoinFestUK is a free to attend crypto focused event built with several tracks aimed at all levels of Crypto enthusiast. We host beginners to ‘OGs’ and B2B, VIP and government guests.

CoinFest started in 2013 at a Waves Coffee House in Vancouver. It was conceived as a way to incentivize cryptocurrency acceptance while educating the public about its importance and use.

In 2015 CoinFest spread worldwide and in 2016 Manchester hosted the first UK CoinFest event! Since 2016 we have grown phenomenally attracting a global audience to our event, hosting some of the most established crypto companies and connecting with a huge scope of Crypto enthusiast with many returning each year!
