Money20/20 USA Rocks Las Vegas with Four Days of Revolutionary Conversations

AI, Regulation, and the New Era of Fintech Take Center Stage at the World’s Leading Fintech Show

New York NY - October 31, 2023 - Money20/20 USA, the world’s leading fintech show and the place where money does business, concluded its four-day show, October 22-25. Money20/20 USA included over 500 speakers and 250 sessions, held on seven stages featuring more than 60 hours of content covering everything from the latest advancements in fintech across a wide range of sectors, including payments, open banking, regulatory framework, insurtech, lending, and more.

AI and machine learning also cemented as a key topic for fintech, exploring how technology can be used for fraud detection, customer service, and loan processing. And traditional banks and neobanks alike are increasingly embracing embedded finance, recognizing the convenience and efficiency it offers to customers.

Highlights also included Ben Horowitz, Co-Founder & General Partner at a16z, kicking things off with Ariel Cohen, Co-Founder & CEO of Navan for a conversation about responsible leadership and the current VC landscape. SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce and Acting Comptroller of the Currency at the OCC Michael J. Hsu gave insight into how regulators are assessing fintech. Former PayPal CEO Dan Shulman once again took the stage to discuss what comes next for him and the industry.

“Money20/20 USA was an amazing four-day show packed with inspirational industry experts and fintech insights. The content was non-stop, the conversations have been fascinating and enlightening, and I would like to thank everyone who joined us and contributed to making the show a success. This level of engagement from industry leaders, regulators, and startups alike, once again demonstrates that Money20/20 is the number one show for the fintech and financial service industry," said Tracey Davies, Global President at Money20/20.
