FinTech Connect 2023 comprises two standalone international events. FinTech Europe, a London-based event and FinTech Connect North America, based in New York. With participants from challenger banks, innovative merchants, central banks, tier one financial institutions and cutting-edge tech players, and more free content on the exhibition floors than ever before, both FinTech Connect events will deliver unparalleled business intelligence insights and sought-after networking opportunities.

FinTech Connect Europe 2023 is taking place between 6th-7th December at the ExCel centre in the heart of London’s docklands. This year’s event is expected to welcome more than 3,000 attendees, global fintech industry C-suite leaders and start-up innovators that are transforming the global payments landscape.

FinTech Connect North America 2023 is the first-in person iteration of the event, after launching a virtual event two years ago. Taking place on 27th June 2023 at Convene Quorum, New York, FinTech Connect North America will discover how financial institutions, merchants and fintechs across the continent are leveraging technology to be at the forefront of the industry.

Laurence Coldicott, Senior Content Director of Fintech Connect 2023, says: “Now that in-person events are back, we’re building on the huge success of last year’s event to ensure FinTech Connect 2023 retains its position as the industry’s must-attend event in both Europe and North America.

“The economic turbulence of the past year has dramatically affected fintech investment, up-ended business models, and disrupted the pace of innovation in paytech and digital transformatio. We’ve seen fast-moving and controversial developments in the areas of blockchain and regulation over the past 12 months. There is much to discuss amid the momentous events currently impacting the industry, and FinTech Connect 2023 promises even more phenomenally impactful insights and transformational solution showcases.

“With even more interactive sessions and lively debates for attendees to enjoy, this year’s event offers a must-have vantage point of where the global fintech industry is at right now – and where it’s headed next. Speakers and sponsors won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to set the agenda and bring their talking points to the table.”
