The UK’s largest fintech event, FinTech Connect, will take place as a virtual online event in 2020 in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The London-based trade show attracted over 6,000 attendees in 2019 and featured 185 exhibiting fintechs.
This year FinTech Connect will be extended to run across a full week, from November 30th to December 4th. The event will include 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.
“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,” said Steve Clarke, Managing Director of FinTech Connect.
“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.”
