See Tomorrow’s Fintech Today at FinovateAsia 2017

FinovateAsia 2017 is almost here! And we can’t wait to show you the new features we’ve added to this year’s event.

In addition to our signature, 7-minute live technology demonstrations on Tuesday and Wednesday, FinovateAsia will also include keynote addresses and panel discussions. Topics covered range broadly from P2P lending and payments, mobile banking, wealth management, and the rise of artificial intelligence. We will also take a look at some of the leading fintech accelerators and incubators in Asia in a special showcase on Wednesday.

So if that sounds like a great opportunity to learn more about fintech in the Far East, here are a few last minute details to ensure you are able to make the most of your time at FinovateAsia this year.
