What's It About?

Financial services are being redefined by automation, AI, and the human touch.
Emotions still determine customer experience, especially when it comes to money. How do we manage the intersection of emotion and technology in retail banking? How do we ensure the digital elements of customer experience reinforce the physical in a satisfying and delightful manner? How can customer-focused financial institutions use digital technology to differentiate themselves from others? How do we handle legacy systems? And how do we stay compliant?
The IDC Financial Forum aims to provide the answers. It brings together the banking and financial services community with hand-picked IT providers to analyze solutions and offer a digital vision for the future. The agenda features thought leaders, cutting-edge debates, robust case studies, and the essential trends and insights you need to ensure you stay ahead of the CX curve.

Key Topics

The Banking Experience: The way to get to a client’s heart. And money.

Mobile and Digital Banking: What’s next?

We also want to reach heads of innovation, transformation and other digital initiatives, CX, retail banking, and risk management.

IDC Financial Forum 2018

Art can speak things that can’t always be said with words. On November 15th we succeeded to bring together 3 apparently different worlds: ART, Financial Industry & Technology. Despite the differences, we believe that this concept evoked emotions and pushed us and our participants to think more openly and try to see things from a new perspective.

Hope to see you at the 2019 edition!
