DMEXCO 2018— Our Experiences

Two Fintechies Exploring the Digital Marketing Expo and Conference

Finance — it’s tempting to think it’s all about numbers. Or about data, now that learning machines piece together profiles from customers’ digital footprints.

But that’s only one side of the coin. In equal measure, it’s about communicating with and relating to the customer. Financial service providers have to accurately address their target groups. How can numbers and data sets close ranks with words, images, and emotions?

At the Digital Marketing Expo and Conference 2018, such questions took the limelight. The conference, often abbreviated as DMEXCO, drew more than 40 000 visitors to the halls of koelnmesse, Cologne. Among them: Two software professionals from the fintech sector.

Our Experiences at Money20/20 Europe 2018

Going to the circus — hard to imagine a more vintage pastime these days.

The digital infotainment industry compels our attention easily, where daring trapezists or wisecracking Augustes would struggle.

The organizers of Money20/20 Europe 2018 didn’t shy away from the contrast. Proclaiming the Greatest Fintech Show on Earth, they paired digital finance with fin-de-ciècle circus arts.

From 4th to 6th June, international fintech and banking companies rolled up in Amsterdam, the new partner city of Money20/20 EU. Among them: A small delegation of invaders from planet trimplement

The stage of Money20/20 Asia 2018

Singapore, Fintech City: Our Experiences at Money20/20 Asia 2018

Global finance is not measured in Dollars and Euros only. The Asian Nations are driven to take the lead in technology. They invest in artificial intelligence and robotics, in fintech and mobile payment. Backed by vast economies like China, India, and Japan, Asia will play a major role in the financial area. A clear sign of this growth is the existence of financial conferences popping up all over the Pacific Area. Money20/20 Asia 2018 is the most recent addition to this well-filled list. 

We have already spoken about two of them here: Hong Kong Fintech Week and the Singapore Fintech Festival showed us what’s on the horizon for Asian finance.

But we wanted to make it three — only fitting to our company name of trimplement.

In March 2018 we attended the very first Money20/20 Asia conference at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. And it was quite different than our two other trips to this part of the world.

Paris Fintech Forum 2018 — Our Experiences

Paris goes by many names. It has been called the City of Love.

It has been called the City of Lights.

Next Generation Payments 2018 — Our Review

What will the next generation of payment look like?

Tough question. But one that needs to be answered by the banking industry. Ever-accelerating technological advancements call for more flexibility on behalf of banks and financial institutions. For the 6th time, the German banking community Bankingclub GmbH has explored this topic at their annual Next Generation Payments conference. The conference took place from January 24th to 25th in Cologne.

As developers of emoney and virtual account management software such as CoreWallet and balancr we didn’t let the chance slip to attend. What we got: Two days of interesting presentations and networking well-worth a detailed conference review.

One of the stages of the Singapore Fintech Festival 2017.

All Eyes on Asia — The Singapore Fintech Festival 2017

The rise of Asia — that is one of the more cited prospects when it comes to finance and technology. It is well justified. In less than a decade many Eastern nations established themselves as counterpoints to Silicon Valley. Undoubtedly, they will play a major role in the future of fintech. And to display a prospect of said future, fintech conferences spring up all around the continent.

Aside from China, where conferences like the Hong Kong Fintech Week and next year’s Money 20/20 China take place, Singapore stands out as one of Asia’s biggest fintech hotspots. The city-state did not only issue a new innovation hub in the heart of its business district. It holds the Singapore Fintech Festival as well. Luckily, we had the chance to experience the event — and we returned highly impressed.

Money20/20 US 2017 – 3 Days of Fintech

It’s been four months since we had attended the Money20/20 Europe convention in Copenhagen. It was the first time we brought balancr to the attention of an international audience. Looking back at positive experiences there, we felt ready to take a leap forward. It was a leap across the Atlantic Ocean. From October 21st to 24th, we were present at the Money20/20 US. At our own booth, we had the opportunity to introduce our product balancr to a new base of clients. In short, it has been a unique experience for us, but we won’t spare you the details, of course.
