Qatar Fintech Summit is the definitive meeting place facilitating multi-stakeholder dialogue with power packed networking opportunities among C-Level executives, leading industry experts, decision makers, policy makers and government officials from across the value chain to foster collaboration, discuss current challenges, business opportunities, develop market strategies, share knowledge and identify solutions aimed at shaping the future of Fintech.

The financial industry with its banking activities, is one of the key sectors of Qatar's Economy. Fintech holds considerable opportunities for economic diversification and is one of the four pillars of Qatar’s National Vision 2030. The Islamic Fintech sector in Qatar is on track to grow at a CAGR of 19.6% and is expected to be worth billions by 2025.
