LendIt, the largest and most recognized conference for the P2P and online lending industry, is pleased to announce that registration is now open for its first European conference on November 17, 2014 in London. LendIt Europe will be held at 155 Bishopsgate, a state of the art new conference venue in the heart of London’s financial district.
LendIt Europe will bring together the leaders and pioneers at the forefront of the p2p and online lending industry in Europe. In addition to the leading lending platforms, LendIt Europe is expected to draw institutional investors, financial analysts, private wealth managers, family offices, individual investors, and media representatives from across the globe. Agenda, speakers, and sponsors will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Europe is the birthplace of p2p lending and in many ways, it leads the world,” said Peter Renton, Co-Founder of LendIt and Founder of Lend Academy. “For this reason, we decided to create a European version of our popular LendIt Conference to bring the European leaders in our industry together so we can learn from each other.”
The one-day conference will feature keynotes from the CEOs of the leading UK platforms, as well as interactive panel sessions with leaders from across Europe. The Exhibit Hall will feature both new and established platforms as well as service providers, allowing attendees to get a complete snapshot of the industry. There will also be a pre-conference cocktail party held the night before at the Andaz Hotel on Liverpool Street.
The European p2p lending platforms have grown dramatically in recent months. In the UK alone, the major platforms are on track to issue £1 billion this year, more than doubling the size of the industry there. In continental Europe, there any many established platforms with multi-year track records still growing fast and several new companies have launched in the last 12 months.
