TAG’s Fintech South Returns to the Virtual Stage
Thursday, March 4th, 2021
Fintech South, the southeast’s largest event dedicated to financial innovation, returns to the virtual stage June 22–24. In its fourth year, the conference will feature more than 40 hours of interactive content from 250 speakers across its main keynote stages and deep dive tracks. New elements for 2021 include dedicated time each day for AI-powered networking, interactive roundtable discussions with on-camera audience participation, highly-produced main stage content, special music and cultural features, and information on over 50 exhibitors in a full-featured virtual expo.
Produced by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), Fintech South is a global exchange of insights, innovations and trends fueling tomorrow's financial tech industry. The 2021 event will bring together senior fintech leaders from across the global fintech ecosystem, most with C-Suite roles in their organizations, including stakeholders from the payments industry, banking, wealth management, insurance, retail and commerce, government and regulatory, venture capital, startup founders, technology service providers, non-profits, and local, national and international media.
“Fintech South is one of the nation’s leading financial conferences,” says Larry Williams, CEO of TAG. “The virtual format allows us to expand beyond the southeast to bring together the world’s biggest names in fintech to address issues, trends and predictions fueling the industry.”
