BAI Beacon 16 Conference is centered in an integrated open campus environment where attendees can easily move from panel debates to case study presentations to peer discussions to solutions provider demos to informal huddles with thought leaders, making the most of their conference experience. This unique format will enable attendees from all types of organizations to interact differently than traditional conferences that have a separate exhibit hall layout where technology is removed from content.
Content topics will include new perspectives and 360-degree views on Integrated Sales, Marketing & Product Development, Optimizing Channel Distribution Networks, Payments Strategy & Fraud, Compliance Strategies Beyond the Regulations, and Small Business Banking Sales & Strategy.
BAI Beacon will also feature the U.S. premiere of FinTechStage. Led by co-founders and industry innovators Lazaro Campos and Matteo Rizzi, FinTechStage connects financial services leaders and a diverse array of technology companies to foster innovation and collaboration.
