The FITFH edition of Banking 4.0 – The International Conference dedicated to Emerging Technologies and new business models in the financial services industry. The event attracts close to 500 attendees at an expert level from more than 15 countries. Banking 4.0 continues to be one of the most relevant events in the CEE, providing a regional platform for Banks and Fintech communities to connect, collaborate, and co-create. In order to have a better future you have to connect minds.

After the relentless Covid assault on our lives and business models, we placed this year’s event under the punchline „Pivot or Perish”. It is as harsh of a line as it is true. At the heart of the two-days get-together are the trailblazers – visionaries who thrived in the last two years, managing to build billion dollar enterprises reaching millions of people every day. Banking 4.0 will be graced by international and local dignitaries, with keynote speakers from international and local banking community, fintech experts. Last but not least, the conference is honored by some of the most important regulatory bodies representatives from banking and fintech.

Banking 4.0 includes an exhibition where you can experience first hand emerging technologies. We’ll be focusing on open banking, AI, blockchain, biometrics, RPA (robotic process automation) and machine learning – among other things. FinTech companies and banks are introducing new products to increase their market access and to have a frictionless customer experience across different financial services.

It is our hope that these thought-provoking ideas will inspire you to connect with your own successful future.
