The RegTech industry is booming. The Grand View Research has forecasted a 52.8% compound annual growth rate and a whooping $55.28 billion market size by 2025. To keep up with the developments, we find it vital to join the ongoing conversations within the space.

Planning and prepping for the year ahead, we have compiled a list of the top 10 RegTech conferences to keep on your radar in 2020. These events are great opportunities to get together with inspiring professionals, thought leaders and fresh thinkers from around the globe to drive the next wave of innovation.

Below we have listed the RegTech conferences to make plans around in 2020.

From the 28th to the 29th of January, the Paris FinTech Forum kicks off the season—for the fifth year in a row. Focusing on big topics such as payment, wealth management, blockchain and digital assets, the event is supported by the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, as well as top managers of major financial organisations.

Based our experience of last year’s edition this is a great event to soak up knowledge and inspiration from some of the most trusted voices in the industry. With over 2600 attendees, more than 250 CEO speakers and 160+ FinTechs, we expect nothing short of awesome!

Finovate Europe
This spring, Finovate will launch its first European edition, taking place in Berlin between the 11th and 13th of February. We look forward to a real pan-European FinTech event covering topics such as open banking, payment services, user experience and AI in the legal industry.

Along with the new location comes the updated three-day format. Day one will be devoted to a series of individual events, allowing visitors to focus on a specific area of financial technology. The next two days will be held in the form of a general report session consisting of seven-minute presentations of the latest FinTech innovations.

Money LIVE Spring

The COMPLY Conference has for the past five years united the industry and served as a catalyst for the advancements of the Compliance, Risk and RegTech ecosystem. It brings together the most comprehensive gathering of regulators, compliance and risk professionals, sales and marketing leaders, innovators, investors, and legal experts from across the globe.

In addition to providing a lot of content and groundbreaking learnings throughout the event, we find it to be a vibrant and refreshing convention.
