“Atlanta continues to grow as a global leader in the fintech space and we are excited to return to this fintech hub as the second stop on our 2019 Roadshow,” said Monique Ruff-Bell, Event Director, Money20/20 USA. “We had an incredibly successful event last year, connecting with the local fintech community and immersing ourselves in the ecosystem at FinTech South. We look forward to kicking off the 2019 conference and supporting industry innovation in the South and across the country.”
The Money20/20 Roadshow event series has become synonymous with the Money20/20 brand, setting this year-round thought leadership platform apart from other conferences. While the headline event draws attendees from around the world, the roadshows tap into local fintech hubs and spot where the innovators and most influential players are doing business. They provide a stage for communities that are enthusiastic about financial technology to showcase their insights to local peers and provide a platform to foster new connections and build partnerships in the lead up to Money20/20. Money20/20 USA will be held in Las Vegas from October 27-30, 2019.
“The industry’s participation in our inaugural event last year far exceeded our expectations, and we are thrilled to kick off FinTech South 2019 once again in partnership with Money20/20,” says Larry Williams, president and CEO of TAG, and host of FinTech South. “Atlanta has put its stake in the ground as a fintech hub. We are thrilled to bring together the companies and organizations that helped us put our city on the map as the epicenter of financial technology and innovation in the Southeast.”
