Backbase expects 1,000 attendees from 70 countries over the three days of the event. The agenda will have some great speakers, including some surprise names.

A broad mix of attendees will join Backbase Connect 2018, including CIO’s, Enterprise Architects, and Heads of Business, Innovation or Digital Channels. An impressive 70% will be VP and C level executives. The three days event offers a series of sessions from innovators at some of the world’s leading financial institutions.
