CUTTING THROUGH THE NOISE: What’s Relevant in an Age of Transformation

At this year’s Global Annual Meeting – The Americas, we are cutting through the noise to help you see the opportunities and navigate through the challenges in this age of transformation. From collaborative disruption between fintechs and FIs to managing data in today’s digital age; from what the financial industry might look like in 10+ years to the impact of geopolitics and current trade dynamics, we’ll uncover what’s important to you and your customers in the face of these new realities.

More Dedicated Bilateral Meeting Times

You asked for it, you got it! The Annual Meeting has always been known as an excellent venue to network with peers, colleagues and clients. We recognize this need and have exclusive times during the conference dedicated for bilateral and small group meetings. And this year, we’ve added more dedicated bilateral meeting times throughout the conference.

    Immediately following the Annual Meeting, we are offering a transformational workshop on innovation. During this action-oriented, hands-on workshop, you’ll be exposed to design thinking exercises posed to challenge, drive insights and encourage innovative thinking to the way you do business today. This is not a technical workshop on blockchain, AI, machine learning or other applications. Instead, you will gain insights, lessons and leave equipped with tools to fully embrace digital disruption, view problems and situations from a different set of lenses and start thinking like a start-up!

    This is an exciting new workshop we sure you do not want to miss! Plan to stay the full day of Wednesday to join this special workshop. Seats are limited. Annual Conference attendees just add $250 to your registration fee, up to a $275 discount off regular workshop rate.
