NFT London Looked Empty: Twitter Blames Ticket Prices

Share This Post

NFT London, hosted by the company behind NFT.NYC, took place on Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th. After taking time to consider, the NFT community on Twitter weren’t happy: attendance numbers looked poor, and the event lacked some professionalism, according to some.

Quick Take:

  • NFT London was hosted in the UK’s capital last week.
  • The Twitter community wasn’t pleased with the attendance numbers.
  • Some noted that the event lacked professionalism, despite the £599 general ticket price tag.

How NFT London Went Down

NFT London, supported by Immutable and hosted by NFT.NYC, was hosted at QEII Centre in the UK’s capital city. A large group of speakers attended, talking on various topics such as blockchains, investing, legal, and NFT for good, to name a few. General tickets cost £599 (~$685) for the two-day event. The goal: to bring together the NFT community from the UK and Europe.

Various events were hosted by both NFT London and various external companies, brands and big names in the community, including Pranksy. Unfortunately, photos taken at the event looked to show empty crowds, which caused a stir on Twitter from the NFT community.

Twitter’s Thoughts on the Event

On Saturday, @DrNickA on Twitter brought together his thoughts on the UK NFT event, most of which were fairly critical.

Later comparisons were made to other NFT events across Europe and beyond, which looked much more full. Of course, the current NFT bear run could come into play, but DrNick noted that this doesn’t reflect the overall London scene, and people were just priced out of the event. He said: “Btw, this is not reflective of the London scene. Zebu Live was absolutely banging a few weeks ago and rooms were chocka right up to the last talk.”

A huge list of speakers and a low turnout: a stark contrast. DrNick also mentioned that the speakers predominantly made up the number of attendees, but they only attended their own talks.

Beyond the low attendance numbers and huge admission prices, the NFT art display looked “unprofessional”, according to a tweet from @redbeardnft.

Overall, Twitter wasn’t particularly fans of the event. However, the company can make up for its apparent shortcomings at NFT.NYC. The Big Apple event is set to take place in April of next year.
