Held under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain and hosted by Bank ABC, the MEA Fintech Forum is one of the Middle East and Africa’s biggest and most significant fintech events. It has been organised annually since 2017.
This year, more than 2,000 participants including regulators, financial services and fintech leaders are expected to attend. The event will explore financial services beyond digital and ways to navigate the current economic crisis, possible paths to recovery, and uncover new and exciting opportunities to drive positive change in the financial services sector.
One of the focal topics of the conference will be the emergence of the ‘bank of the future’, exploring the seismic shift in the global economy in the wake of the Covid pandemic.
The MEA Fintech Forum underlines Bank ABC’s commitment to the region and supports Bahrain’s vision to become a leading fintech hub. Simon is delighted to be a keynote speaker at such a prestigious and influential event.
