About the FinTech Forum

Following the success of the 2018 edition, the MEA FinTech forum returns on the 21st February 2019.

Bringing to you an unparalleled line up of speakers, leaders, CEOs, innovators and entrepreneurs, the Third MEA Fintech Forum promises to be the most inclusive and innovative yet.

Under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain and hosted by ABC Bank and AFS, the forum will present invited guests with a series of unparalleled, world-class experts and pioneers, governors and CEOs, leading discussions around future trends, empowerment and financial inclusion – the future of banking itself.

The Forum is truly the first of its kind. It is the first regional conference that seeks to understand and explore the power of not only technology, but the people using it. The Forum will bring together the world’s principal experts in FinTech and the leadership of some of the most influential financial organisations in the MENA region.

With FinTech currently opening doors across the whole of the MEA region the forum will explore how integrating innovative technology into the existing banking sector will revolutionize commerce in Bahrain and the wider MEA region, empowering individuals and communities like never before.

Hosted at the Ritz Carlton Hotel and exclusive to business leaders, FinTech experts, policy-makers, CEOs, regulators, representatives of the investor community and those in the Finance and Technology fields, the MEA Fintech Forum is the premier conference to discuss how next generation technology is shaping the region around us.
