Ready for kick off! Fintech London unveils striking new venue to spur on sector
Fintech Week London is returning for its third year this June, bringing together some of the most influential players in the financial technology industry. The highly anticipated week-long programme will once again feature a two-day conference running between 19 – 20 June – and this year held at the innovative Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – as well as the hotly-contended Fintech Awards London 2023.
The flagship event will bring together international leaders from the worlds of fintech and financial services in London, a primary global hub for both sectors. In doing so, Fintech Week London will provide attendees with exceptional learning and networking opportunities, utilising the location’s unique layout and unmatched high tech event and hospitality areas, as well as offering unparalleled access to the city’s fintech elite. At its core, the event aims to cultivate new partnerships between business leaders in a moment of considerable need.
By choosing to host this year’s event at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Fintech Week London has selected a venue uniquely positioned to foster partnerships and new industry connections. The leading venue offers numerous breakout areas, comprising both open lay-out loges as well as private (closed door) suites to be used for one-to-one meetings. Attendees can also take advantage of several exciting experience activities including stadium tours and ‘The Dare Skywalk’, the UK’s first controlled descent from a stadium roof.
Alongside discussing the difficulties associated with the current economic picture, the leading fintech event will cover some of the most prevalent topics affecting the sector right now, including the rise of embedded finance solutions, the growing importance of fintech for good and the ever-expanding role of cryptocurrencies across our daily lives. With a mission to help the sector move from ‘Flux to Flow’, leading experts and speakers will explore these impactful topics plus many more salient industry issues.
Additionally, the event will put a specific focus on the power of fintech in London, as well as the state of funding in fintech. The latter topic will be supported with a detailed review from Fintech Week London itself, which will be published during the event. Rather than shying away from challenging discussions, the event will tackle the most salient issues affecting fintech and financial services right now.
The first batch of speakers will be announced imminently, with senior decision-makers from leading fintechs, banks, investment firms, regulatory bodies, media companies and service providers to be included. By gathering players from high-street banks to challengers, technology giants to disruptors, the event is uniquely placed to host important, high-stake discussions, which are critical for the further development of both sectors.
Speaking on the event, Raf De Kimpe, CEO of Fintech Week London commented: “Last year we welcomed over 800 attendees to Fintech Week London, including the Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot. This year we’re looking to go further than ever before and aim to deliver an unmissable, landmark event for individuals working across the fintech and financial services sectors at the amazing Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“Ultimately, no modern venue fits the ethos of Fintech Week London better than the state-of-the-art stadium, which combines award winning hospitality with digital-first connectivity. The arena allows us to offer attendees new and exciting opportunities for networking and collaboration activities via the stadium’s numerous breakout areas, as well as a host of unique experiences, such as the skywalk and stadium tours, that will help to inject some much-needed relaxation into what’s set to be a busy week.”
The event has already announced some of the exciting speakers taking to the stage including Louise Hill, Co-Founder and COO of GoHenry, Simon Boonen, Fintech Lead at ING, Gihan A.M Hyde, CEO of Communique and David M. Brear, CEO of 11:FS.
