Conferences to feel impact

Financial services’ conferences are less likely to be attended in-person as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, a poll of the industry has revealed. Some 53% of those questioned by financial technology and data specialist LendingMetrics in an online survey said that Covid had made them ‘less likely to attend an in-person conference’, as compared to 43% who disagreed with that view and 4% who were undecided. The survey was conducted by the leading FinTech company in the run-up to the busy Spring conference season, when businesses traditionally decide on the resources to allocate to participation. David Wylie, Director of LendingMetrics,

said: ‘The pandemic has had a far reach- ing impact on our habits - for example with hybrid working - but this poll shows that it has also changed the perspective on making the effort to attend a confer- ence in-person. We’re going to have to wait and see whether this adaptation, like remote working, is going to be for the short or long term.’ Despite the poll results leaning in one direction, they still show that a large proportion of people see their views on conferences as unaffected. Whether the changing views on confer- ences are here to stay or not; now, more than ever, it is essential that the credit and financial services communities come together to discuss the pressing challenges, share opinions and identi- fy strategies to work towards a more stable future.
