FinTech North Leeds Conference 2019 23/05/2019 8:00


The Leeds FinTech North Conference is back and bigger and better than ever. To cover the huge range of topics  demanded by the rapidly expanding community in the Leeds region, we’re going multi-stream.

The day will start with a look at the healthy state of the regional and national Fintech economy with speeches from Vocalink/MasterCard, Tech UK, The Northern Powerhouse Partnership and FinTech Scotland. We’ll look at major developments for FinTech in Leeds itself, the skills challenge and driving innovation through the development of hubs and accelerators such as Nexus.

Then in the afternoon, delegates will split into a variety of streams. With content covering mortgages, InsurTech, innovation, and RegTech. These focused sessions will allow delegates to hear and participate in deep discussions most relevant to them.

Finally, in the late afternoon, the delegation will gather again to hear form our final speakers and enjoy a well earned champagne keynote speech.

More information will be announced imminently but in the meantime watch this space and follow the developments on Twitter and Linkedin.
