Fintech O2O Global Summit 2018 sees players converge on Hong Kong on May 9

The Fintech O2O Global Summit will take place in Hong Kong on May 9, 2018. Find out more about this major fintech event at www.fintechO2O.com

PMQ, in the heart of Hong Kong's hip SOHO district, will host a multivariate event that will explore the convergence of different fintech verticals. Major financial services institutions, regulators and venture capitalists are looking carefully at the next wave of innovative startups, many of whom are beyond concept and now in-market with their solutions. The event will take place the day after, and connect to the Block O2O Blockchain Summit 2018.

"Advances in blockchain and cybersecurity are going to need to implement AI solutions. Payment gateways will have to integrate with leading open banking solutions to deliver real utility to users.
