Many financial services conferences refuse to think far enough forward or fast enoughMany financial services conferences refuse to confront the change they’ll experienceMany financial services conferences refuse to create interesting spaces for innovation
Many financial services conferences are just plain And treat their guests like corporate lemmings

What’s it all about? Think of the last banking conference you went to. It probably was just like the last one & the one before that.Next Bank Asia is a conference discussing the REAL future Too often, too many banking or financial servicesof banks, financial services & money. Designers, conferences are either too corporate, too close-minded ortechnologists, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, marketers, just plain boring.bankers and innovators will come together to discuss the They don’t include certain fringe players in the industrybest ideas in Asia. who can bring new innovative ideas to the table. They don’t include entrepreneurs with new business models for fear ofTo be held in Singapore on May 9-10, 2012, this is a unique the threat they pose. They don’t connect thought leadersopportunity to be part of something brave and new for the together, or enable the serendipitous coming together ofbanking industry! different industries. Most importantly, these conferences often don’t talk about the reality of the change in front of the industry. The changing consumer, fast evolving technology, increasing uncertainty and volatility at the same time as increasing opportunity are all key environmental factors in any financial services firms roadmap. Next Bank Asia aims to confront all these issues. Next Bank Asia will create an open dialogue about all these things, using innovative new formats and agenda items. We’re looking for designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, innovators, governments, policy makers, corporates and banks to come together to discuss new ideas, real futures and how we can collaborate to make banking better for our customers and our businesses.
What’s it all about? We’re not conference organizers. We’re like you. We work in the financial services industry like you do. We’re not an events company. So whilst we’re learning about conferences, we know about the issues you confront as well as anyone. Our motivation here is genuine – we want constructive, challenging, and enjoyable dialogue, not boring speeches formulated by an events company. We’re going to challenge the conventional conference format. An agenda will contain a special VIP event accessing 2 of the brightest brains in global innovation, presentations from thought leaders, demos from entrepreneurs and small businesses, and a huge socially responsible banking section on how the industry is helping (not compromising) the unbanked and developed markets. We’re looking for any interested parties to send us a proposal for their presentation. There’ll also be a cool venue, great food, perfect coffee, cool merchandise and proper conference bags – you know, all that stuff that normally sucks at most conferences.
