ICSA - Digital Banking Summit 2020 About The Event

About The Event

Africa has always remained at the forefront in welcoming innovation and attracting growing interest from a range of Investors, Trade opportunities, emergence of industries, technology service providers and sustainable development interests, in line with Africa's sustained growth. Nigeria’s economy may be in a difficult period, but with digitization at the core of the national banking strategy, financial inclusion has been given room to grow. There is a readiness to embrace new technologies which will help a large proportion of the African population skip whole stages of traditional digital development altogether.

Digital Banking Summit - Innovation & Excellence Awards 2020 is coming to Nigeria for a two-day summit bringing together experts, industry leaders, blockchain pioneers, technology gurus, payments and innovation solution providers from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Togo, Ethiopia, Uganda, and 13 other countries from across the globe, to explore how this new era of disruption will permeate and reshape the BFSI Space across East Africa and in turn have its impact across the globe.

Strong economies stimulate asset growth and the BFSI sector in this region is now witnessing the dawn of promises and possibly no better time than now to jump on the bandwagon for digital transformation. Economic foundations are strong, the regulatory frameworks in these countries are working towards being favorable, and transformative technologies are more readily accessible, powerful, and economical than ever before.

The need for strategic transformation in four important areas that banks should prioritize: technological advancements, security and risk management, payments & financial inclusion.

Digital transformation has already started to disrupt the traditional banking models, but what role will the emerging technologies play in the future of finance? Meet us on the 20th & 21st of April, 2020, to hear experts shed light on these topics, align banking strategies and network with peers and colleagues in exciting networking receptions, round tables, panel discussions and more.
