Conference: Next Bank Asia 2012
May 3, 2012 by SGE
Think of the last banking conference you went to. It probably was just like the last one, and the one before that. Too often, too many banking or financial services conferences are either too corporate, too close-minded or just plain boring.
They don’t include certain fringe players in the industry who can bring new innovative ideas to the table. They don’t include entrepreneurs with new business models for fear of the threat they pose. They don’t connect thought leaders together, or enable the serendipidous coming together of different industries.
Most importantly, these conferences often don’t talk about the reality of the change in front of the industry. The changing consumer, fast evolving technology, increasing uncertainty and volatility at the same time as increasing opportunity are all key environmental factors in any financial services firms roadmap.
Next Bank Asia aims to confront all these issues. Taking place over May 9-10th 2012, Next Bank Asia will create an open dialogue about all these things, using innovative new formats and agenda items.
When: Wed-Thurs 9-10th May 2012
Where: Red Dot Design Museum, 28 Maxwell Rd, Singapore 069120 [map]
