The 1st Stellar Conference, November 4th–5th in Mexico City

A new financial future is coming. Let's talk about it at Meridian.

At Meridian, we're taking payments to the next level.

Meridian is the first Stellar conference. It will bring together everyone in the Stellar universe, alongside major financial institutions and industry experts, for two days of networking, learning, drinks, food, and fun. You'll meet talented, passionate people from around the globe in sessions designed to facilitate collaboration, creativity, and connection. It's a place to share new initiatives, new ideas, and new products. And it's all happening in an incredible venue: the lush Proyecto Público Prim in Mexico City.

The Stellar network has been live for five years and has seen incredible growth, in both bull markets and bear. Operations on Stellar are up 25× since January 2018, and accounts are up over 10×. Together, we’re building a better, more accessible economic model. At Meridian, we'll celebrate the work we’ve all done, and lay the groundwork for the exponential growth still to come.

On the agenda: we'll address fundamental questions facing the network, like inflation and transparency. We'll discuss big challenges around adoption and marketing. We'll learn from economists and other experts, as well as from each other, in focused discussion groups and technical workshops. We'll announce new programs and services, and we'll do it all surrounded by the best and brightest in the Stellar ecosystem.

Bring your biggest ideas to Meridian. Let's build the future together.


Collaborate and share ideas with other Stellar ecosystem stars in targeted discussion groups.


This is the first time that we’re bringing together the global Stellar community. Get ready to meet some amazing people.


The brightest minds from around the world will share their visions of the future. We’ll allow plenty of time to talk through turning ideas into action.
