The Way to San Jose: FinovateSpring Has Sprung!

FS2016_TitlesWordCloud_FinalWho goes all the way to San Jose, California, for a fintech conference, you ask? A better question might be, who doesn’t? On Friday, we learned that FinovateSpring 2016 had sold more than 1,500 tickets, making it the biggest ever. But don’t worry if you haven’t picked up your ticket yet, there’s still plenty of time.

FinovateSpring is less than 48 hours away. And while presenters, attendees, and even a few members of the Finovate team are still making their way toward California’s third largest city (and home of the San Jose Sharks!), rest assured that we’ll be ready with everything you need for two rewarding days of live fintech demos and networking starting bright and early Tuesday.

On that note, here are a few tips and reminders to help you make the most of your week.

Registration begins at 8:00 AM on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. The first demo on both days begins at 8:45 AM. Tuesday’s demos will wrap up at about 4:00 PM. The final demo on Wednesday will end at approximately 2:40 pm. Networking with an open bar will close out each day with Best of Show winners announced during Wednesday’s networking session.

We hope to see you here in sunny San Jose this week for what promises to be a great spring event. There’s still time to pick up your ticket—visit our registration page and save your spot today.
