Event Overview

Banking and Payments Federation Ireland is set to deliver a most engaging programme under the theme of Transforming Banking for Customers at its National Banking Conference 2017, on Friday 20th October at The Marker Hotel, Dublin.

Through a series of keynote speeches, panel discussions and a banking roundtable, the drivers of transformation and the challenges and opportunities presented will be comprehensively addressed.  Leading bankers, policy makers, regulators and analysts from home and abroad will speak to two principal topics: how banking is actually being transformed; and how regulation is being harnessed in support of that process.

Moderated discussions throughout will ensure that attendees will get the most out of this flagship event in the banking calendar.

Among the key speakers confirmed are Alex Weber, Head of International Markets, N26 and the EU Commission’s  John Berrigan, Deputy Director General, Financial Stability, Financial Services and CMU.
