Money20/20 Asia Prepares for March 13 Launch

Money20/20 Asia will bring together top global FinTech leaders in Singapore – from Ant Financial, GO-JEK, Ping An Group, ICICI Bank, Tencent and DBS Bank to Adyen, Google, Stripe, PayPal, Samsung Pay and many more – to create the future of money.

The world’s leading FinTech and Payments event is nearing the March 13 launch of its APAC edition, taking place in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre.

The event will recognise the defining influence of the pan-Asian Payments, FinTech and Financial Services ecosystem with an agenda carefully curated to bring to the forefront the unique opportunities the region offers as the world’s fastest growing FinTech marketplace.

The host city of Singapore has been chosen based on its international reputation as a gateway to Asia with its connectivity with regional economic powerhouses as well as the emergent FinTech markets in Southeast Asia. With a thriving FinTech ecosystem and the business infrastructure needed to deliver a world-class event, Singapore is the ideal location for Money20/20 Asia.
