This year’s Money20/20 Europe conference kicked off today, and it’s already shaping up to be one of the biggest industry events of the year.
One indication of this is the number of speakers lined up to take the stage: More than 350 industry leaders will deliver talks throughout Money20/20 Europe’s keynotes, seminars, and sessions. And these will include some particularly high-profile individuals, including Santander Chief Digital and Innovation Officer Lindsey Argalas, Stripe CEO Patrick Collison, Amazon Pay VP Patrick Gauthier, and ING Group CEO Ralph Hamers.
It’s also becoming clear that biometrics specialists are also playing a prominent role at this year’s Money20/20 Europe, with major companies like IDEMIA, Precise Biometrics, BioCatch, IDEX, Onfido, and Jumio in attendance to showcase their technologies and solutions. It’s part of a larger wave of excitement over biometric authentication in the financial services industry, with technologies like face scanning and fingerprint recognition continuing to help service providers adapt to the ongoing disruption and excitement of digitization.
“Transformation across the financial services sector is happening more rapidly than ever before with many saying the next five years will bring even bigger changes than the last five,” commented Money20/20 President Tracey Davies in a statement. “Our packed agenda in Amsterdam will dive into trends and topics that will drive that change, inspiring discussion about where the industry is going next and what we need to do to get there.”
Money20/20 Europe is slated to run from June 3rd to 5th in Amsterdam, and FindBiometrics is reporting live from the RAI venue throughout.
