Conference 2024

May 22nd, 8am
Cloth Hall Court

We are delighted to announce the return of our eighth annual Leeds Conference, hosted in partnership with Leeds Building Society, Lenvi and Mastercard, this May, in the city where it all started!

With thanks to our pre-conference dinner sponsors, Intercash.

Home to more than 100 FinTech firms, generating over £700m GVA every year, Leeds is the centre of a thriving West Yorkshire FinTech ecosystem. The Bank of England, the FCA and the UK Infrastructure Bank have all landed in the city recently, so it’s certainly an exciting time for FinTech in Leeds!

The timing is therefore perfect for us to invite you to join us at the iconic Cloth Hall Court at the University of Leeds, a hub of Leeds’ rich textile trade history, which now plays as host to the annual celebration of FinTech excellence in Yorkshire. We are delighted to return to the spiritual home of the Leeds Conferences, and excited to continue to build on years of success here.

We can’t wait to bring together our community for a day filled with captivating talks from industry leaders, updates on the sector, networking with FinTech professionals and a celebration of the Leeds FinTech ecosystem.

Some themes you can expect to see across the day include:

– Skills

– Accessibility

– Lending

– Vulnerability

– RegTech

– Banking

– And more to be revealed…
