CL@B 2017: How emerging technologies and innovation are disrupting the banking industry


MIAMI, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Organized jointly by the Florida International Bankers Association (FIBA) and the Federación Latinoamericana de Bancos (FELABAN), CL@B is the biggest and most prestigious financial technology and innovation conference in regards to Latin America.

The impact of innovative start-ups on the banking and financial institutions is undisputable. Competitive threats are coming from everywhere at a time in which customer behavior is changing fast. If traditional institutions are to survive the digital era, they must embrace innovation and find ways to partner with change agents. This discussion needs to involve all the industry's major players: big and small financial institutions, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, regulators and government. CL@B 2017 will bring them all together at the Intercontinental Hotel, from Aug 30th to September 1st .

A diverse and dynamic group of about 1,000 senior leaders from multiple countries and fields of expertise will address some of the industry's most pressing themes and trends including: Cybersecurity, the future of payment, Blockchain, the Fintech effect, regulatory challenges and Big Data analytics.

The conference, coming into its 17th year, presents a platform for networking with the industry's top professionals and attend expert panel discussions that will help generate ideas to address current and future challenges.

The speakers lineup include: keynote Chris Skinner, author and advisor to the White House; Robleh Ali, Research Scientist of the MIT Media Lab's Digital Currency Initiative; Miguel Caldentey, Financial Services Advisory at Ernst & Young, in addition to senior leaders from Bank of America, World Bank, Facebook, PayPal, Delloite, Microsoft, Wells Fargo, IBM Watson, Citibank, Visa, SAP, IDC, Mastercard, BBVA, Ocean Bank, and several Fintech innovators and entrepreneurs.

"In a time of great anxiety for the industry, incumbent institutions realize that complacency is not an option," said David Schwartz, President and CEO of FIBA. "Emerging technologies and innovative business models must be part of the solution. But the answer will probably not come from within: collaboration with external entrepreneurs and startups will invigorate existing paradigms, generate faster solutions and improve customer experiences that are so vital for traditional players to thrive. And this is what we will cover during this year's CL@B," he added.

CL@B 2017 is supported by strategic partners including Ernst & Young, Procolombia, Microsoft, Bisagi, Infocorp, NEC, UDT and more than 100 supporting organizations.
