9th Digital Banking Forum

"The Next Challenges in Digital Banking"

Digital banking presently is the focal point of the financial sector, as the challenges it faces but also the opportunities it has to offer are numerous. The new ecosystem created by the numerous challenges and opportunities emerging in the banking sector will be the focus of the 9th Digital Banking Forum, the forum on banking organized with the objective to highlight – once more – the trends developing in this specific market area, in Greece and abroad.

The 9th Digital Banking Forum #dbfo22, is organized by ethosEVENTS in collaboration with the economic and business portal banks.com.gr and the economic and investment magazine HRIMA The participation in the Forum, will be either physical at the Divani Caravel Hotel, either digital through LiveOn, the integrated platform for Digital Communication and Events, and its innovative 3D exposition and conference center LiveOn Expo Complex.

Mr. Dimitris Mallas, will be the Program Manager.

The 9th Digital Banking Forum will focus on the following areas of interest:

  • Banks’ new phygital approach

    The COVID-19 pandemic seems to have given Greek banks the final push they needed to create a new diverse operating model, combining physical and digital sales channels. The phygital model is a global dynamic trend which has recently started gaining momentum in the Greek market.
    During the 9th Digital Banking Forum, speakers from Greece’s top banking institutions will discuss the way in which domestic banks approach this model, while foreign experts will analyze this trend.

  • New digital services launched by traditional and new market players

    As consumers and businesses adapt to the new landscape of the digital era, the financial system is undergoing constant changes. One of the main developments is the promotion of novel digital services by traditional as well as new players, with the latter having started to establish their own communities and ecosystems.

    These innovative services lead to different balances and new customer acquisition and retention strategies. Among the new players are foreign and Greek companies, while fintech startups play a key role in the market. During the 9th Digital Banking Forum, the most innovative digital services and projects will be examined, with the objective to identify the ones that will make a real difference in the existing status quo.

  • Changes in the market of payment systems

    Following one of the most critical trends of the last two years, Greek banks opted to sell their activities related to payment cards. This led to financial agreements worth several hundreds of millions, while the biggest global corporations either reinforced their presence in the Greek market or took an interest in it for the first time.

    In this session of the 9th Digital Banking Forum, participants will explore the new trends and opportunities that have started emerging in the new landscape of the payments sector.

  • Infrastructure required for the operation of banks

    IT infrastructures and communications networks have evolved into the most valuable assets of companies of the financial sector. The same is true for the data they have accumulated, which they are now called to utilize in order to improve their operation and services offered to their customers and survive in a highly competitive market area.
    Companies involved in the financial sector have already started taking an interest in technologies such as the cloud, big data and AI, especially since the latter are largely considered as the key to the next day.

    Taking all the above into consideration, top digital technology suppliers will present the solutions they have to offer as well as related case studies, offering to the participants of the 9th Digital Banking Forum the opportunity to better comprehend the new technological trends and how their utilization may bring better results in terms of productivity, competitiveness and flexibility in the operation of banks.

  • Fintech startups

    In the startup and innovation ecosystem, ideas and practices related to the fintech sector are high in the list of investment funds’ priorities. In Greece as in other countries, traditional banks now opt for cooperation with fintech startups, as both sides stand to gain a lot from this partnership. Which are the sectors that could enable such synergies? Which startups could take the next step in the business arena and spread their activities beyond Greek borders? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered during the 9th Digital Banking Forum.

Who Should Attend

  • High-ranking bank executives who understand the importance of the sector’s digital transformation and seek to broaden their know-how
  • Insurance executives who follow the developments regarding the establishment and implementation of new business models
  • Digital technology companies executives seeking to network with professionals involved in the financial sector interested in utilizing digital technology tools
  • Young entrepreneurs involved in the fast-growing fintech sector
  • Executives from various market areas who wish to get information on the new trends in the financial sector and the new digital products and services that will help them improve their services and operation.
