As the internet and mobile devices have evolved during the first two decades of the 21st century, the way financial transactions are executed has changed dramatically. Businesses which provide technology that offer services around “digital money,” from credit card transactions to online bill pay, to the global transfer of funds, are part of an industy called financial technology, or FinTech.
For those FinTech companies looking to demonstrate solutions and build productive relationships, 2020 will offer a number of events that promise to attract a large portion of this growing market. As you get ready for the new tradeshow season, it’s a good idea to review Exhibit Design RFPs to know what to expect.
Here are some of the upcoming shows to consider as you plan your 2020 face-to-face marketing program and budget.
January 2020 FinTech Tradeshows
The Digital Money Forum | Las Vegas | 7-10
The Path to the Digital Economy
How much cash do you have in your pocket? That’s what the organizers of this Forum ask the audience every year, and every year for the last five years, the answer has been less and less. The goal of this conference is to help the FinTech community navigate the transition from paper currencies to digital. The conference is one day, but the exhibition lasts for four days, plenty of time for an exhibitor to meet new prospects and solidify relationships with exisiting customers.
Also, there are many sponsorship opportunities available, including participation in the Digital Money Podcast and networking events that keep the conversation flowing. https://thedigitalmoneyforum.com/
February 2020 FinTech Tradeshows
DeveloperWeek | San Francisco | 12-16
