Building on the success of last year, NEAR’s flagship event is back. And this year it’s set to be bigger and better than ever.

  • Join 2000+ delegates as we explore the limitless possibilities of building a better world with NEAR.
  • Get up to speed on the NEAR ecosystem and the latest Web3 developments and technologies.
  • Get inspired with talks from renowned authors, economists, A-list artists, and politicians.
  • Get together and network with builders, collaborators, and makers across a variety of industries.

Then get ready to groove the night away with our resident DJ. And if you’re a hacker accepted for the hackathon, you’ll get a free conference pass. Let’s build beyond the hype at NEARCON.
