Digital Banking Forum 2021

“The next steps for the financial sector”

The next steps of the financial sector are among the main topics of the Digital Banking Forum 2021, the forum on banking organized by ethosEVENTS with the objective to highlight – for one more year – the trends developing in this specific area of the market in Greece and abroad.

The Digital Banking Forum is an event that has transformed the way the use of digital technologies in the banking sector is presented. This year it aims at offering participants a unique experience, as it differs from other events on banking and finance in terms of presentations and interaction between audience and speakers.

The forum is organized by ethosEVENTS in collaboration with the economic and business portal banks.com.gr and the economic and investment magazine HRIMA and will take place on Thursday 1 April 2021.

Β2Β Μeetings 

The attendants of the Health Innovation Conference 2021 may participate in pre-scheduled digital B2B meetings with Sponsors’ corporate representatives. These meetings will be organized in parallel with the main works of the Conference. They will be programmed based on the availability of the Sponsors and their duration will be of 30’ maximum.

The Digital Banking Forum 2021 will focus on the following areas of interest:

• The banks’ new omnichannel approach and the role of physical bank branches

The change in banks’ operating models has become evident in Greece in the last years. However, due to the new circumstances brought on by Covid-19, Greek banks engaged in a major re-organization of their physical branches networks while further boosting their digital channels. The omnichannel approach is currently the prevailing trend in the financial sector and has transformed the banks’ internal organization and their approach towards their clients (businesses and consumers). Physical branches will not disappear but their role in the market will undergo radical changes.

• The cloud, AI & the financial sector

The acceleration of the digital transformation of the private and public sectors has brought to the fore technologies such as the cloud, big data and artificial intelligence (AI). For the financial sector, these technological tools are the key to the next day as they enable banks to introduce their new services and offer an improved and more personalized experience to their clients.

Top providers of digital technology services will present their solutions and interesting case studies, helping the participants of the Digital Banking Forum 2021 to better comprehend the possibilities offered by the new technological trends and see how their proper utilization may improve productivity, competitiveness and flexibility with respect to banks’ operation.

• E-payments & digital currencies

Another market sector which gained considerable traction in the last months is that of e-payments. The increased use of cards and mobile payment methods in Greece is impressive, while new solutions become available every day. This sector offers a series of innovative options and is constantly evolving, given the intense interest in digital currencies on a global scale.
This will be one of the basic focal points of this year’s forum, which will aim at highlighting the trends on this sector through presentations and discussions with top executives involved in the financial and technological sector.

• 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. But which are the sectors that could enable such partnerships? 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 Digital Banking Forum 2021.

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.
