Banker Middle East Summit 2019


The global banking and finance industry realizes innovation, dynamism and agility are critical characteristics for remaining competitive and to thrive in today’s digital era. The industry is preparing to face challenges from fintechs, blockchain and now Big Techs, all of whom are increasingly occupying traditional banking and finance spaces, giving established banks existential competition.


A successful digital transformation strategy demands a combination of optimum leadership focus, talent, insightful investment and a culture of innovation.

With interactive discussions and thought provoking, informative and lively debates, the BME Banking Technology Summit 2020 will focus on the innovations and change making technologies like Open APIs, IOT, Quantum Computing, Blockchain and AI among others, which are transforming the banking business.


The Summit will be followed by our inaugural Banking Technology Awards to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the banks and technology businesses at the forefront of digital transformation who have worked together to build smarter, more effective and efficient systems for their clients and customers.
