Whether you're new to the Fintech world or a seasoned pro, attending annual events with your team is a great way to stay in the know. These events are significant for learning the hottest trends in WealthTech and networking with Fintechs on every level, from startups to large corporations. There are varying levels of participation, whether you are representing your company, hosting an informational booth, or demoing your latest Fintech solutions. There is something for everyone at these events. Traveling is always a perk, too, as many events are shifting from a virtual to an in-person/hybrid platform.

5. fintech meetup
When: march 19 - 22, 2023 | Where: aria, las vegas
Fintech Meetup takes place during the first quarter of every fiscal year. I had the pleasure of attending this year and am looking forward to attending next year! This year’s virtual event allowed you to create a profile about your role in Fintech, what you can offer other attendees, and what you would like to learn from others during the event. From there, you can browse through 120+ target profiles (CEOs, COOs, SVPs, etc.) and set up 15-minute meetings with Fintech innovators of your choice. I’m looking forward to the 22 collaborative meetups added to my calendar with my WealthTech peers! Next year’s in-person event will be a wonderful time to reconnect with old and new connections while learning about the latest WealthTech trends from engaging panel discussions and content sessions.
Learning from peers in your industry is an invaluable opportunity. My team within Yoh's Fintech Practice has found these events to be excellent opportunities to network and continue to move the bar forward in Fintech and WealthTech's growth, as well as provide our clients with today's top-notch talent. As new technologies are always debuting, we take it upon ourselves to constantly learn and develop our skills. Hope to see you at one of these upcoming events!
