Last Early-Bird Deadline to Demo at FinovateEurope 2024

Last Early-Bird Deadline to Demo at FinovateEurope 2024

FinovateEurope 2024 takes place at the InterContinental O2 London over February 27 and 28.

Those who’ve been to a Finovate know the demos are unique. They are not pitches or presentations. They are seven-minute technology showcases without use of slides, videos, and mockups. They do not happen in the expo or on a stream stage. They are on the main stage during the general session without competing content. This approach delivers the highest ROI to demoers and ensures all attendees can experience the technology and discuss next steps.

There’s a competitive application process to demo at FinovateEurope next February, and the final early-bird deadline is Friday, November 24. When companies apply by this date and are selected, they receive a £1,000 to 2,000 discount on the demo fee.

When reviewing submissions and curating a demo lineup, the Finovate team looks for several things: Technology from across banking and financial services industry; companies ranging in age, size, culture, and geo footprint; recent launches or significant advancements in existing technology; partnership and other media announcements; and, of course, innovation and the competitive landscape.

For selected companies, the demo opportunity at FinovateEurope includes the 7-minutes on stage, a plug and play stand in the expo area over both event days, speaker tickets, lead gen scanning and reports, coaching calls with Finovate’s host and resident expert, and marketing and media exposure.

To move forward, review the online demo details, then submit the confidential application. Applications will be accepted after November 24 but will not receive the early-bird discount.
