Fix the digital! How leaders are reimagining customer experience, data, sales processes and collaboration to succeed in their transformation journey!

Customers, governments, regulators and stakeholders are pushing for change in the region. The rapidly changing economy, digital landscape, customer preferences and the technology are demanding the financial industry in the region to transform itself; in order to become more relevant, inclusive and transparent. However legacy issues and old habits are still a drag while nimble technology giants are increasingly creeping into the turf of banks without having to comply with existing or new regulations.

In this brave new world of major change where big data; analytics; digital wallet propositions by non-traditional players; new distributive reach of non-banks; and the push towards collaborative effort pose both big opportunities and huge challenges to the banks.

Efma is bringing the fourth edition of its Retail Banking Summit in Middle East, where you can gather all the industry knowledge and find out ways to overcome the challenges and learn to forge the way forward towards success.

This year’s conference will deal with these issues and look at the successful models within and outside the region to chart the way forward towards sustainable and profitable transformation in the banks and the banking industry. The key themes and the successful models which will be discussed during this year’s summit will revolve around following areas:
