Fintech Week London Welcomes International Industry Event to the UK

Growth in Fintech has accelerated since the start of the pandemic and, with much interest in the digitalisation of the banking sector, Fintech Week London 2021 is an eagerly awaited event.

Celebrating some of the biggest and most exciting names in the sector, Fintech Week London is taking place at a number of select venues in London and online between 12th and 16th July 2021. 

The event comprises a two-day conference, breakout sessions, an award ceremony, and a long-awaited industry party this summer. 

The first physical event of its kind for some time, FintechWeek London will also be live-streamed for those unable to be present on-site, providing online intelligent matchmaking and networking.

For those ready to meet in person again, and for those joining virtually, it’s set to be a packed agenda. Content for the conference has been curated by some of the industry’s most respected experts and B2B influencers. Learn more about the topics here.

From fireside chats to fringe events, starting at Barclays Rise on Monday 12th July 2021, Fintech Week London welcomes a host of respected keynote speakers and industry leaders:

Speakers throughout the week will include Alex March, head of Klarna UK, Dan Morgan, policy lead – Europe, of Plaid and Sophie Guibaud, chief growth officer of OpenPayd.

Raf De Kimpe, CEO of Fintech Week London, said: 

“We have been blown away by the interest and support that we have received from the Fintech industry in London and internationally. This has come from sponsors, speakers, partners and now we are seeing a surge in interest from attendees. Over the course of five days, we will welcome over 2,000 executives from high-street banks, digital challengers, technology giants, and new disruptors. Fintech Week London will host many of these industry leaders in person for the first time in so long, and we can’t wait to hear the fantastic discussions that will undoubtedly emerge. London still sits at the centre of global Fintech, and we can clearly see the evidence of this as our event draws closer.”

De Kimpe shared:

 “Planning an event like this right now definitely comes with added pressure, but it is going to be worth it – this is an industry that feeds off of collaboration, and we want to help bring that back. In terms of mitigating potential risk, we are constantly monitoring the situation and government guidelines. We will take appropriate precautions and our terms and conditions on tickets are very flexible, we urge everyone that has symptoms or had a high-risk contact to join from the safety of their home. We’ll provide a costless swap from a physical to an online ticket (with a partial refund). Additionally, we urge all our physical attendees to take a lateral flow test less than 24 hours prior to the event, these tests are available free of charge to UK residents.”

As a minimum, all visitors will be asked to scan the NHS Track & Trace QR code at the reception and temperature checks will be performed on entry. All visitors will be asked to wear a mask as much as possible and wash hands regularly. There will be extra hand sanitising stations throughout the venue and common areas will be disinfected regularly.

Registration for Fintech Week London is now open, and partner submissions are still being considered.
