You failed to provide any single argument, why it will not hit 2.05 as always you just atacked poor non native english speaking guy

You obviously didn’t read the whole thread. And are you calling @XRPcalling a poor non native english speaking guy? Lol. He’d like that. Or are you talking about yourself? 

You and Blubber once again hijacked a thread, that’s all you can do. Dislikebaiters you are ?

Indeed, you were asking others repeatedly if you could sell in the Zerpening. How sad is that. 

Please don’t respond on this or any post of me again. Not for my sake but for OP’s, you’re polluting the board with your obsession.

please tell us more!

I can do better than that... I can show you. :)

I work in event production for a living. I'm a freelance Senior PM with around 12 years in the industry and 90% of my work is in the middle east (Usually Dubai or Abu Dhabi) so I end up flying back and forth out of London quite a bit. Have also lived in the region for a total of around 5 years (three years UAE, one and half Qatar, 5 months Saudi) Mostly my projects are for government departments and blue chip companies with the occasional royal and state visit. 

This one however was my first Fintech event, and that because the event is an initiative out of ADGM (Abu Dhabi Global Markets) Who are government owned.

When I say I built that event, Its pretty much literal. My job is to take the creative concept pitched to a client and work out how to turn it into reality using the right sub contractors and build crew from the pre production well before the event starts, to the on site delivery/build. I hand over the site to the event crew the night before an event and they then manage the event itself (this is where the pretty hosts, stage managers, catering crew blah blah etc all come in to play.)

Now I know what the question is going to be... did I get to meet Sagar and pose any questions and/or have a conversation with him? Unfortunately the answer to that is no. I knew he was one of the key attendees and would have tried to corner him for a chat, but timing wise didn't work as I had another contract start on the 17th (two days ago) for another client in Dubai. Sagar didn't come for any of the mic check or rehearsal sessions on the afternoon of the 15th before the event live days while I was still on site so our paths didn't cross.

I did get a meet with a few other startup heads (seccurrency stood out as one that might be worth taking notice of in the future)

anyhoo, i'm rambling. proof is in the pudding. Below are a load of snaps I took. These are all raw, non pro shots, in no particular order, some showing build process, some completed pre-event. I need to filter them, I need to get some of the snaps from the pro photographers at the event, but this will give you an insight into behind the scenes of the event world, as well as the scale of a fintech event in general. 

List of the things you are looking at below:
 

Main plenary stage 1

secondary session stage 2

round table discussion forum

lightbox with 84 LG showcasing "the sound of blockchain"

Sandbox with custom content projected on black sand

a sh*tload of print graphics everywhere

custom reception counters and entrance graphics

"reglab" regulators demonstration pods

innovation challange area pods

custom PVC wall to encase the outside terrace with air con to increase space use as "indoor" rather than outside.

control desk with probably around 10km worth of cable leading back to it or so

a load of other stuff I cant remember now.
