About the Conference
The FITSPA Fintech Conference that will be held on 8th September 2021 will converge leading players in
business, government, technology and world-class financial services solution providers in order to better
navigate shifting landscapes, help businesses embrace and drive the transition to a digital future and
unmask the power of technology.
The theme of this year’s FITSPA Annual Fintech Conference 2021 is “Building a Safe and Regulated Eco-
system”. To-date the Association has registered over 163 members who are hungry to explore and
utilize all the existing opportunities. The conference is a great opportunity to network and consolidate
the knowledge pool in partnership with the best Fintech solution providers.
The Conference will provide for the further entrenchment of the industry in the region by leveraging
the opportunities that are continually presenting themselves in the form of challenges and gaps in
delivery of services to the market. The strategies and knowledge shared amongst like-minded peers will
build confidence and equip techprenuers onto greater achievements.
The FITSPA Fintech Conference will be a virtual experience delivered via platforms that will allow for
participants to engage and network with each other during the conference.
