FinTech Conferences: The Best FinTech Events Guide

Ready to attend a fintech conference in 2022? These are the biggest and best events this year in the financial technology industry.

Did you know that the fintech industry has been around for more than 100 years? It’s true! In 1918, the US Federal Reserve Banks developed the Fedwire Funds Service, a real-time, gross settlements system. A couple of decades later, credit cards were created, then NASDAQ invented electronic trading another few decades later.

These days, the fintech industry is growing and changing faster than ever before. Fortunately, there are plenty of top-quality fintech and related SaaS events to educate attendees on the future of financial technology. Below, in no particular order, we list the biggest and best fintech events for 2022, along with reasons why you should attend each one.
