Fintech Week 2021 will be a fully virtual 4-day event, which will address today’s most pressing challenges and identify what’s next for financial services. As Covid-19 continues to cast its shadow of upheaval, the accelerated digitisation of the economy that it’s triggered has given rise to new opportunities for the fintech sector and placed it firmly in the spotlight. Challenges notwithstanding, the sector is poised to leverage its unique attributes to aid the recovery process, and to bolster financial services.
You'll have seamless connectivity to key industry decision makers, thought leaders and experts, and the ability to engage with the brightest minds in fintech. It's an opportunity to meet the success stories of tomorrow and learn about the trends and disruptions that will shape the future of the industry.
A fully interactive event means you can engage with speakers and other delegates. You can interact during sessions and private message to arrange meetings, and hang out and network at tables in our virtual lounge. Our Speed Networking facility will also match delegates and suggest meetings.
Pitch to a global audience of investors, visionaries and decision makers.
Companies can set up branded virtual stalls with video content, arrange meetings and present/demo products and services to prospective clients.

Our 4th Fintech Week looked at how business models and innovation would need to adapt to drive success over the coming decade. There was focus on emerging technology, cybersecurity, disruption and customer engagement. We also looked at how digital transformation is transforming payments, banking and insurance. Open Banking was a key theme, having recently been adopted by Israeli regulators. We were also happy to welcome the UK's Financial Conduct Authority, their very first time participating in a conference in Israel, who shared a stage with Israel's regulator the Bank of Israel.
