The most exclusive European event
on digital finance at Fintech time
By Laurent Nizri, Alteir Consulting CEO, founder & CEO of Paris Fintech Forum.
Following the huge success of 2018 edition, Paris Fintech Forum 2019 had overcome all our expectations: organized by Altéir last January 29th & 30th, we gathered 2,700+ attendees from 75 countries over 2 days in the heart of Paris, to listen to 280+ CEO’s from banks, insurance, regulators and of course Fintechs from all continents.
Over 180 Fintechs CEOs from all over the world were both in panels & interviews and on our stage dedicated to pitches & showcases. Most of those Fintech were also present in our exhibition hall in one of our 100+ Fintech pods.
During those two days we addressed all key issues at the heart of the news of digital finance in general and Fintech in particular in 80+ panels & interviews. To host this international event we have booked a mythical place in our industry: the former French stock market exchange in the heart of Paris, fully privatized for this great occasion.
We'll be back next January 28 & 29, 2020 to host the 5th edition of the Paris Fintech Forum under the high patronage of M. Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic. Our ambition is unchanged: be and stay the most exclusive digital finance & Fintech event in Europe, and why not worldwide. So as this year you may expect an outstanding speaker line up with a CEO only stage as never seen elsewhere, an amazing international crowd of attendees being mostly decision makers (c-level and directors), not to mention more than100 amazing partners.
Stay tuned on our newsflow on twitter and follow us on @ParisFinForum. And of course, don't miss our emails with more info on the event, speakers application campaign and our early birds rates for attendees in September!
