High-Lights: Our Tech PR POV

The State of Fintech Conferences in 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our global health and economy, the fintech community is finding ways to adjust and marshall its resources and technology to help aid governments and consumers

It’s inevitable that fintech conferences this year have canceled or pushed out their events. Though some have resorted to a virtual option, and sticking to their original dates. While virtual events will certainly have a different look and feel, with the right set tactics, you’ll be able to achieve your goals, whether that includes sales prospecting, recruitment, fostering customer engagement, gathering competitive intelligence, or visibility. Keep in mind that digital advertising, content optimized for specific channels, and interactive forums for dialogue and engagement, among other strategies, can ensure you make the most of both virtual and physical events. 

Looking for insight on the state of fintech conferences? We’ve compiled a list of the major 2020 fintech conferences and noted their status. We hope to see you there (either virtually or possibly later this year in person). If you are hosting your own virtual event, learn more about how Highwire can support you here or get in touch with us at hi@highwirepr.com.
