top 60 banking events

Banking and lending are undergoing a massive digital transformation at present, with the market exceeding $1.18 trillion in 2022 and gradually moving to the $1.7 trillion mark by 2028. The global adoption of AL, ML, blockchain, and FinTech advancements changes the industry in leaps, and the market landscape is dynamically reshaped to give a greater voice to tech-savvy and innovative participants. 

Many modern technological trends, including FinTech innovation, make the industry evolve and become more secure and digitized, so banking market players of all scales and sizes need to keep track of the changes to preserve their competitive advantage. The pace of change is very fast, and the only chance to stay informed of the latest definitive tendencies is to attend banking and lending summits and conferences where the market leaders and top voices meet to define the directions for future development. 

To help you stay informed and updated on the latest happenings in the world of banking and lending, we’ve searched wide and compiled a hand-picked list of events worth including in your agenda in 2024. 

Why Attend Banking Events in 2024? 

Contrary to what many people think, banking conferences and summits are not only about entertainment, endless chatting with colleagues you haven’t seen for a long time, and drinking champagne. In most cases, you get the following invaluable benefits from getting to one of the world’s top banking events: 

  • Networking. International-level conferences always attract the brightest representatives of the industry from all corners of the world, gathering in one place to exchange opinions and experiences. 
  • Access to the industry’s top voices and minds. You can meet the pioneers and visionaries of the banking and lending industry, talk to them in person, and establish vital connections with people you admire. 
  • Professional development. A visit to one conference can substitute years of learning because of the access to the industry’s top experts with unique insights into the present-day and future state of industry development.
  • Updates on the transformative trends. You’ll be the first to learn about groundbreaking innovations and products in the making to ride the wave of change and adjust to the coming transformations. 

How to Choose the Banking Conference Worth Attending? 

There’s so much going on in the banking sphere at every given moment that you simply can’t catch up with all events at once. If you try to, you’ll be mostly spending time flying from one continent to another without time to introduce all new knowledge into business practice. That’s why it’s vitally important to choose events for attendance very carefully. Use the following parameters as your guideline: 

  1. The speakers’ list. Study the list of the conference’s attendees to find those you want to learn from or meet in person. A conference can become a unique opportunity for establishing a connection with an industry leader or learning some exclusive insights from the top voice in banking. 
  2. The location. You should consider the logistics of conference attendance, as a trip to another continent and staying in one of the world’s most expensive locations (like London) may be unaffordable for your startup on a budget. 
  3. Networking space. Research all data about the conference of interest to see whether it allows space and time for networking and personal communication. Otherwise, it may be irrelevant to your actively developing business. 
  4. Innovation focus. Banking innovation is at the top of most businesses’ interest today, so it’s vital to check whether the conference will cover innovative products, services, and practices in your professional niche. 
  5. Price. The cost of attendance differs widely, from free access to over €1,000 for one or two days of attendance. Thus, it would be best to consider every conference’s potential benefit for your business and career before spending a fortune on a ticket. 

With these parameters guiding your choice, you’ll surely get a much more focused understanding of what event is worth your time and money and which one is mostly useless.
