Covid 19 statement

This year, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, FinTech Connect will take place as an online event. While lockdown is easing in many European countries, FinTech Connect attracts an international audience and, based on close consultation with past attendees, sponsors, partners and its Advisory Board, IQPC has elected to shift the event to an online platform. The health and comfort of everyone involved in the event is of paramount concern.

As a result of the change to digital delivery, this year FinTech Connect will be extended to run across a full week, from 30th November  to 4th December. The event will still include all of the features that attendees are familiar with; multiple conference tracks covering Digital Transformation, Paytech, Regtech, Blockchain and Start-Up Growth, as well as a large-scale virtual exhibition, workshops and tech demos.

Statement from Managing Director, Steve Clarke: “After canvassing opinion from industry stakeholders, we feel that there remains too much uncertainty around business travel currently for us to plan for a physical event this year. Our actions have to be governed by our partners and while so many of our exhibitors, speakers and attendees have measures in place which limit their ability to attend or travel to events, reverting to digital delivery feels like the considerate and responsible thing to do. Virtual event environments are really sophisticated these days, and while we appreciate it’s not a like-for-like substitute for a physical event, advanced technology will enable us to deliver excellent value for attendees and exhibitors through enhanced networking, demos, presentations, and discussion groups,”

Further information on how the event will run will be added to the website over the coming days. Anyone that would like to discuss the plans for the event in further detail can contact the team here
