At World Banking Forum 2023 Winter Edition we explored how banks in different parts of the world are coping with the uncertain geo-political situation, evolving technology landscape, and what present-day strategies they implement to transform into digitally resilient future enterprises.

Top experts joined the Forum in Amsterdam on 26 & 27 January to get a head start of the year at this exclusive international gathering of progressive bankers.

Thanks to the dynamic Interactive Programme, delegates came away with a clear plan and guidance to successfully address today's uncertainties and stay ahead of the competition.

Join us in Summer 2023 in Greece!
