Transforming ideas into turnover
How can bankers innovate without knowing what others are doing best on the market?

The summit brings together bankers who are interested in leveraging technology and innovation for growth. Heads of business lines, heads of segments, COOs and heads of innovation, marketing managers, among other business managers in banks, will interact with the ecosystem of innovation in banking: fintechs, bigtechs and innovation leaders. Winners of the 2018 Efma - Accenture Distribution & Marketing Innovation in Banking Awards and the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners from 2019 will also feature. So it will be a wonderful opportunity to network and learn.

We have asked the winners of the world’s best innovations in banking awards to come on stage and deep dive. They will present not only the actual innovation, but will also explain how they have implemented it and integrated it into their business lines and platforms, what difficulties they have encountered and how they track performance, including the real impact on the bank’s business.

Key questions that will be answered include:
What are the latest innovation trends and which technologies are the most used by banks and for what purpose? 
 What are banks’ strategies for using innovation to grow business and what are their key achievements in this area? 
 How can artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, machine learning, big data and blockchain contribute to profit?

The summit will focus on a range of hot topics, with real-world examples of innovation successes. The Gold winners of the Efma - Accenture Distribution & Marketing Innovation in Banking Awards 2018 will discuss how their projects have evolved since they won, and share insights on their plans for the future.
