Tracking the Trends at FinovateMiddleEast

FinovateMiddleEast begins tomorrow, which means our demoing companies are rehearsing their pitches of the newest technologies they plan to show off on stage.

What’s hot in the MENA region right now? The best way to find that out is to attend FinovateMiddleEast (taking place at the Ritz Carlton DIFC in Dubai November 20 and 21). The second best way is to take a look at the following word cloud that depicts trends from the live demos that will take the stage on the second day of the show.

Aside from the obvious banking trend that appears front and center of the word cloud, the following fintech sub sectors are expected to make a big impact at FinovateMiddleEast this week:

  • Underbanked
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • APIs and SDKs
  • Design

We’re looking forward to starting the conference tomorrow with a keynote presentation from Chris Skinner. For more information about the discussion content, check out our summary of day one: Banking on the Future in the Age of the Customer and day two: Digitization, Disruption, and the Business of Banking; and take a look at our sneak peek series for in-depth information about the live demos.
