Meet Our Speaker
Chris Krimitsos has cemented his place in emerging technologies, as evidenced by his success with a global podcasting event that set back-to-back world records and a first of its kind blockchain event. Time and again Chris has solidified his reputation as a thought leader, whether as a speaker, an event organizer, or in the media. Along the way, his name twice became etched in the Guinness World Records™ as he championed the largest attendance for a virtual podcasting conference in one week, first in 2020, and then breaking it with a new mark one year later. Always an early adopter, Chris became immersed in crypto before the mass population heard of it or understood it. Thus, known for bringing people together, he birthed the Florida Bitcoin and Blockchain Summit in 2021, the first event of its kind in the state. It’s common to find Chris at the leading edge of the next big technology wave. As a result, he has become a go-to for keynotes, interviews, and forecasts. Chris has successfully grown Podfest™ Multimedia Expo to an international conference with upwards of three thousand registrants from what started as a meetup at a local café in 2013. Content creators have benefited from his knack for community building as they build relationships AND their podcasts and YouTube channels through the platforms he has provided. These experiences, whether in-person or virtual, are built from the foundation of Chris having created more than 2,000 live events in his professional career. As a trend setter, Chris identified podcasting’s popularity and responded with a 2017 documentary about the evolving medium. The film has been placed on YouTube for global distribution, after having initially been released on Amazon, where Chris also had a book (“Start Ugly”) hit #1 in Business Leadership and HR. Specializing in emerging technologies, from blockchain to NFTs to cryptocurrency, podcasting, and on-demand audio, Chris is a leading go-to innovator who continues to give a voice to the global creator community.
