World SME Banking 2020 - In 2013, a study from Accenture said that SME Banking will change more in the coming 10 years than it did in the last 100 years. We are more than a halfway there and it is definitely exciting to see all the advancements that have already taken place.

However, key questions remain:
• Is the change sufficient to stay relevant and keep growing in the five years to come?
• What areas and priorities are inevitable to catch-up for all SME banks by 2023 and what will be trends and focus areas after the 5 years period?

The World SME Banking 2020 is the annual must-attend meeting for heads of SME banking worldwide to share challenges and best practices. SME Summit 2020 in Milan aims to helps banks to grow their SME business and profit by investigating new and disruptive ways to acquire SME customers while optimizing their operations, decreasing their overall cost to serve, and minimizing their risk exposure.

Key topics covered at this year’s event:
• SME banking transformation sprint
• Deep dive into building SME Ecosystems
• SME customers acquisition
• Lending 2020
• Sustainable and responsible SME Banking
• Inevitable ingredients for successful SME strategy
