WHAT'S NEW FOR 2018

Money20/20 is going beyond the expected and delivering a roster of exciting new features in 2018. Each year, we strive to improve and better serve our attendees who help make us the world’s most important payments, commerce and financial services event. 

New Tracks

As our industry continues to grow and develop, so do the imperative topics of discussion. This year, we’ve included four new areas where we’ll provide insightful speakers ready to share world-renowned thought leadership: Breaking News & Fintech Views, Cybersecurity & Fraud, Digital Identity & Biometrics, Digital Marketing & CX and Fintech for Social Good.

More Networking Than Ever Before

Each year we push away from the networking norm, using our scale to connect you to the right individuals for the most productive conversations. In addition to Industry Night and our Poolside Reception, we’ve expanded on and upgraded our networking initiatives. This year, we'll introduce AI-Powered Meetings, Daily Meet-Ups and Dedicated Networking Receptions each day - ensuring no connection gets missed.
