Content, community & experiences

The Fintech Talents Festival is not an event – but a community. C-Level executives mingle with startup founders to debate and discuss the conventional wisdom of each event day across all our stages. Whether engaging on stage or off, carrying on the conversation on the Festival floor or at the craft beer bar, both our audience and speakers are essential to the dynamic.

Networking drinks receptions

What better way to wind down from a day of inspiring content and smart networking than an evening of fine wines, beers and canapés.

Continue to connect, discuss and debate or simply kickback and relax. 

 

Music stage

Fintech Talents will present music throughout the Festival, showcasing the best in new music but never overlooking past favourites. Expect guest DJs and good times.

Craft beer bar

Our craft beer sessions allow you to sample some of the greatest beers from across the UK whilst networking with strategic partners.  

VIP Hosted Meetings Programme

Taking place in our brand new and exclusive hosted meetings lounge.

Fast-track access to the industry leaders and technology providers you want to meet with efficiency and ease. Look no further to strengthen existing partnerships and build new connections.
