Established financial services and FinTech organisations to congregate and support at FinTech North’s Manchester Conference next month



With our fifth annual Manchester flagship conference on the horizon, we’re counting down the clock to welcome a cohort of expert speakers from established financial services and FinTech brands operating in the North of England to the North West for a celebration of its illustrious FinTech ecosystem.

The event will take place at The University of Manchester’s iconic Whitworth Hall; an auspicious location adjacent to where the world’s first programmable computer was invented. Evidently synonymous with innovation, the location shares parallels to the rise of FinTech – so what better place to host an event addressing the cutting edge of innovation in the financial services landscape?

We can’t wait to hear keynotes and insight from our event partners; The University of Manchester, DARE Technology, Weavr, Mastercard, GFT and Amazon Web Services. Not only that, but the hybrid event promises to provide a platform to bring together a mixing pot of passionate stakeholders in the realm of Northern FinTech. FinTech leaders, entrepreneurs and opinion leaders in financial services will converge to Central Manchester for what is projected to be one of the biggest FinTech events in the North this year.

We’re expecting the event to cover pertinent themes in FinTech such as payments, eCommerce, trust, embedded finance, talent, and investment. With some brilliant speakers on show, and access to endless networking opportunities with stakeholders in a rapidly developing and exciting FinTech ecosystem – you wouldn’t want to miss this.
