After a difficult year for many firms in the fintech sector, the focus has shifted from a growth at all costs mindset towards more sustainable, profitable growth.
With the C-suite significantly more budget-conscious than in years gone by, comms and marketing professionals must ensure they are prioritising the right channels and do more with less.
Events often represent a big chunk of marketing budgets and given there are now hundreds, if not thousands of fintech events each year, it’s getting all the more challenging to pick out the best ones to attend.
The Chatsworth team has done the hard yards for you and compiled a list of the top fintech events taking place in 2024.
These are the big ones, but don’t forget the numerous events split by segment, sector, region and asset class – it’s important to find your focus niche and audience.
