Many industries undergo significant changes due to changing consumer habits, advancing technology etc. – digitalization demands for new business patterns. This applies also to The Financial Services Industry which is no longer the restricted domain of incumbent banks and payment providers.
Payment happens everywhere and at any time. And technology has advanced so much that payment becomes more and more invisible. South by Southwest® (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, provides an opportunity for global professionals from various industries to participate, learn and network.
The SXSW conference features a variety of tracks that allow attendees to explore what’s next in the world of technology, data as well as developing eco systems and proves that the most unexpected discoveries happen when diverse topics and people come together.
How will the cashless city of the future be designed? When will all cars drive autonomously, and how will this impact the cities? What can local stores offer that online shops can’t match? What opportunities and challenges can blockchain unlock in logistics, supply chain, and shared mobility? How will data science, machine learning, and neural nets change the way people make decisions?
“It’s time to take a peek over the edge of the plate and get insights and inspiration from other countries and other industries. We will create connections with experts from across the globe in order to transfer these ideas and opportunities to our current and future projects.”
Jens Hegeler, Managing Director
