Why attend Finovate?

Finovate has been drawing attendees from a variety of roles within fintech and finance for over 10 years. Whether you’re a banker, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, or member of the press, Finovate has something for you.

Here are 6 reasons attendees join us:

1. Experience our highly-efficient format.

Our short-form demo-based format allows you to see a huge number of demos in a short amount of time. Each presenter has just 7 minutes to show you what they’ve got, and they can’t use slides or video. You see only live technology with no unnecessary filler.

2. Stay ahead of the curve.

Fintech innovation continues at a blistering pace, and you can’t afford to be left behind. Stay informed and find the next big advantage – before your competition does.

3. See curated content.

The competitive application process for demoing companies means you only see the best of what fintech currently has to offer. We hand-pick each company that we put on stage, and by forcing them to do a live demo we make sure you only see technology that works today.

4. Connect one-on-one with innovators.

Speak directly to the founders and senior executives from the demoing companies during FinovateMiddleEast’s high-impact networking sessions. This isn’t your typical trade show floor, it’s your chance to speak directly with the innovators behind the technology that excites you.

5. Learn from Fintech’s visionaries.

With our newly expanded format, you’ll get to hear from the thought-leaders driving the industry. The demos show you the best of what’s available now, and our speakers will give you a unique insight into what’s coming next.

6. There’s something for everyone.

Whether you’re looking for a specific tech solution or you’re simply curious to see what’s out there, you’ll leave Finovate with new ideas and a fresh outlook. And a combination of main-stage content and subject-specific tracks means you can see the complete picture and then dive into the specific subject area that interests you most.
