Company Profile Form

We use the company profile form to gather information about your company and innovation. It will be used to create a one-page profile in the booklet given to attendees at the event and in the mobile event app. After the event, the profile will also be shown on Finovate.com next to your demo video.

Register Team Members, Customers, VIPs

New for 2020, each demo package contains six tickets discounted by 60% for your team members, customers, VIPs, etc. That's a HUGE discount!

To use this discount, please click the "Apply Discount to Tickets" button below. Add tickets to your basket and then, on the next page, click on 'Have a VIP code?' in the right corner and enter your company's discount code. The ticket price will be reduced by the respective discount before you enter any personal information. If you need more than six tickets or do not know your 60% discount code, please email Oliver at oliver@finovate.com. Additionally, demo packages also contain a 20% discount for social media marketing (LinkedIn, Twitter, website, etc.). The 20% discount code is FKV2369TFS.

VIP Guest Passes

As a demoing company, you have the chance to nominate people for VIP guest passes.

If you would like to nominate someone to join us, please note they are required to work for an end user (i.e., Bank, Insurer) and hold a C-level, Director or VP title within the relevant field of technology, innovation or digital. If your chosen prospect(s) do not fit within this criteria, we will not be able to grant a complimentary pass, but, if you feel comfortable, you can share your 60% or 20% ticket discount with them.

Declaration of Public Liability Insurance

Demoing companies must complete this declaration form, confirming they have public liability insurance for no less than $1,000,000 property damage loss or theft and personal injury, available upon request. *If your company does not have public liability insurance, please email Oliver at oliver@finovate.com with the following statement releasing us from liability: [Company Name] holds harmless Informa Connect and their associated vendors for the FinovateSpring 2020 event on November 23-24, 2020, should anything happen to their booth, booth equipment or staff personal belongings.
