With nearly twice as many leading fintech companies expected to be present, Money20/20 USA promises to be bigger and better.
Across five stages, 250 speakers, 53% percent of whom were fintech business founders or CEOs, engaged in 3 days of conversations that will shape the future of fintech. The headline speakers included:

There were 100+ international media and industry analysts at the event to report on the many significant industry announcements, including TrueLayer’s $130 million funding raise that values the London-based startup at over $1 billion and Italian payments giant Nexi telling the Money20/20 audience that they were in talks with the European Central Bank about the design of the Digital Euro.
“Today we celebrate the successful return of Money20/20 Europe, the industry’s leading fintech event and the first large international business conference to be held at the RAI, Amsterdam this year. With over 7,000 meetings held between attendees, Money20/20 Europe has proved once again to be the place where new partnerships are forged and fintech business deals are made. We now head to Las Vegas for Money20/20 USA, knowing that we can safely and successfully run a large-scale in-person business event”, said Money20/20 President Tracey Davies.
