rounded-image circle-image

This year, companies in the financial sector have been excited by the prospect of returning to in-person conferences, after the global pandemic had a disastrous impact on the events industry over the last couple of years. With businesses plotting their events calendar, we put together a handy guide to the top Financial Services and FinTech Conferences in 2022 to help you decide what to attend and why.

When growing a financial company, it’s vital to stay up to date with the latest innovations and trends in the Financial Services and FinTech space. Attending key industry events is a great way to do this! Whilst some event organisers are operating hybrid events (with both in-person and digital options), there are pros and cons to weigh up when it comes to deciding which to attend in the flesh and where your budget might be better served from the comfort of your desk.

However, whatever the format of conferences, it's clear that events still remain a key opportunity for FSI companies to network, showcase products and services, drive leads and gain insights to inform your strategies.

NOTE: Some conferences will be subject to change, as the pandemic still has the potential to disrupt events in certain countries.
