The Swiss Pavilion at the Singapore Fintech Festival 2019 will include 20 fintech, finance, and technology firms from Switzerland and Liechtenstein. A great opportunity to network.

From 11th to 15th November, the Singapore Fintech Festival 2019 will again attract a global audience of Fintech pioneers, startups, global corporations, and investors. There will be a Swiss Pavilion, co-hosted by the Swiss Embassy, Switzerland Global Enterprise, and Swiss Business Hub ASEAN to provide a platform for Swiss enterprises to showcase their innovative products.

Last year, 45,000 participants from 130 countries attended the event, including key executives and decision-makers from global financial institutions and corporates, innovators, and technologists from FinTech start-ups to unicorns, investors, and academia. Thus, the Fintech Festival is an excellent opportunity to network and gain in-depth industry insights. 

The location couldn’t be any better, as Singapore has developed into a hotspot for Fintech and blockchain technology. The country is home to a vibrant banking scene, numerous startups and the government is facilitating innovation by taking a progressive stance on legislation and by driving its own initiatives.
