The Middle East is set to host two major financial services-focused conferences next month, with the Digital Banking & Payments Summit and the NextGen Banking & Technology Summit taking place in Dubai and Oman.
Organized by Cedar Management Consulting and IBS Intelligence, the summits will provide executives and leaders from across the broader banking and financial services ecosystem with the latest insights on digital transformation and payments.
The events will see an impressive roster of speakers sharing trends and developments on topics including next-gen banking, B2B payments, customer experience, cloud, technology innovation and more, along with other perspectives drawn from industry experts across banks and technology players during the panel. talks and workshops.
The summits are taking place against a rapidly changing – and digital – backdrop for banks. “Digitalisation in banks has become more of a necessity than a preference,” explained Chetan Parekh, partner in the Dubai office of Cedar Management Consulting and leader of the firm’s fintech practice.
“The reasons for embracing digitalization are multiple: to improve banking efficiency, attract and retain new customers, improve analytics, launch innovative services and improve product personalization.”
But as banks pursue their digital banking agenda, they encounter all sorts of pitfalls, with digital transformation in banking notorious for its challenges. That’s where the two summits come in: “We’ll help leaders explore the latest developments in digital banking, so they can return to their business with valuable learnings and insights.”
