MFC-EMN Annual Conference
About the event
The MFC-EMN Annual Conference has been postponed for October 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The exact dates will be announced later on.
The MFC-EMN Annual Conference, supported by Software Group, will take place in October in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The event will be a meeting of minds and ideas and will be the perfect opportunity for members and other industry experts to network, exchange experiences, learn from an impressive line-up of guests and even lay the groundwork for successful partnerships going forward.
About 600 participants are expected to attend the conference this year from East and West Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus and even further afield. MFC and EMN’s respective annual conferences have always been the highest profile events on financial inclusion and microfinance in the region and this joint venture will be no exception.
By joining together an expertise and a knowledge, the event will be able to offer an even more tailored and top-notch experience in 2020! Come and learn more about this year’s event topic “Working together in a time of digital disruption”.
Over the last decades, technology has gradually changed the way we engage with the world. In the last few years alone, the rise of cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and fintech has transformed entire business processes and systems.
The microfinance sector is of course not immune to this digitalisation process which, while providing numerous benefits to customers and providers, also introduces a completely new way of doing business that is often removed from MFIs’ core expertise and comfort zone.
Most European and Central Asian microfinance institutions have made significant steps towards using new technologies in their operations, but this work has not yet resulted in new business models.
The 2020 MFC-EMN Annual Conference in Sofia will help us take stock of the work that has been done so far on the technology front. Join us!
