“We set out to create a digital experience that could bring the fintech community together and connect organizations to the bold ideas and emerging technologies that will move the world forward.”
LONDON (PRWEB) June 30, 2020
FTT Virtual North America, a global virtual fintech event that brings together thought leaders from emerging technology brands and financial institutions, today announced it will host its first North American digital conference, FTT Virtual North America in the fall of 2020.
This is the first large scale North American venture for VC Innovations, the team behind the very successful FinTECHTalents series.
The virtual festival comes on the heels of the success of the European focused FTT Virtual Spring – in as much as a virtual event has borders – which ran on June 10, 2020. The theme of “making distance irrelevant” clearly resonated across the fintech community as over 3000 attendees joined live.
Slated to debut September 9, this is the first virtual conference of its kind geared towards North American financial institutions, fintech brands, and providers that will showcase speakers’ sessions around digital innovation and transformation.
At a time where in-person conferences and events have been canceled due to the pandemic crisis, the majority of businesses have sought new ways to network and engage with other industry professionals in the financial sector. Organized by VC Innovations, who run the annual FinTECHTalents Festival, FTT Virtual North America bridges that gap with a virtual experience that blends the traditional benefits of a physical conference with the speed and innovation of a nimble start-up.
“The COVID-19 crisis has created new challenges for businesses, but it hasn’t eliminated business goals. For the financial services sector, this pandemic has only accelerated digital transformation,” said Victor Cruz, CEO of VC Innovations. “We set out to create a digital experience that could bring the fintech community together and connect organizations to the bold ideas and emerging technologies that will move the world forward.”
The fintech festival will showcase a number of live sessions by industry thought leaders, a virtual expo hall to connect and engage with fintech providers and features an online “speed networking” and happy hour event for all attendees.
Additional benefits of FTT Virtual North America include:
- Main stage and live interactive sessions with more than 50 industry speakers
- Curated networking channels to connect and meet with other industry professionals
- Virtual drinks reception with access to video chatrooms
- Access to conference exhibitors and ability to schedule private discussions with prospects
- On-demand replays of conference sessions for all attendees
- Live discussions and Q&A with session speakers
“We didn’t want to deliver ‘just another webinar.’ This is a one-of-a-kind virtual experience that will set the standard for other industry conferences in the future,” said Lisa Moyle, Director of Strategy. “The financial sector is ready to move forward and we are creating a path for organizations to do so.”
