xCEEd 2018: Just another Fintech Conference?
Well no. Not quite. xCEEd is a fintech conference but it is quite a different experience. XCEEd is designed to support the changing face of fintech in Central and Eastern Europe. It also is focussed on bringing the right people from across the sector and providing the right environment for collaboration and innovation.
Sound like the same blurb from any fintech event? Maybe, but xCEEd does actually deliver it. From making sure we invite the right people as delegates – C-level executives that are the relevant decision makers to selecting the right topics that are at the leading edge of technology. We provide a variety of speakers, panellist and industry experts that offer real experience to help make effective change. Most importantly we keep it exclusive. Exclusive makes us great in that people can get together and have a good conversation and make meaningful partnerships. The mix of activities is carefully calculated to provide just the right amount of stimulating debate and the time to network and explore the topics at the right pace.
Since the launch of the SCT Inst rulebook in November 2017, many more banks are live and offering real-time payments to their customers, with most of the rest committed to 2018. The buzzword at the recent ECB #TIPSapp Event in Frankfurt was ‘Interoperability,’ or as my friend José Beltrán from STET would say, ‘Reachability.’ No-one expressed this more clearly on February 6th than Javier Santamaria, President of the European Payments Council, when he reiterated his message from Il Salone Dei Pagamenti, the day after the SEPA launch; “We have launched the Pan-EU scheme, now it is up to you in the audience and beyond to take advantage of it and make it work.”
With the European Central Bank’s new challenger service, Target Instant Payments Scheme (TIPS), going live in November 2018, it is looking like the drive for interoperability is fast becoming a reality rather than an expectation. However, the industry is keen to understand more about how TIPS can help alleviate the risk of fragmentation within the Pan-EU Instant Payment region.
