Why attend?
The event will provide an opportunity to meet and learn from colleagues involved in innovation and regulation from across the globe, with an emerging and African market emphasis.

There’s a wealth of learning on this subject locked up in silos. This event will start to dismantle some of these silos, and begin to better connect high-level practitioners, policy-makers and technical assistance specialists to drive new, positive market developments.

In particular, the event will present an opportunity for emerging market regulators to join the global conversation. Uniquely, the event will include a bootcamp element and site visits, which will help to deepen the learning process.

Who should attend?
Central Banks, Capital Market Regulators, Communications Regulators, Technical Specialists, International Development Partners, Financial Service Providers, Financial Technology Firms, Legal Advisors.


Both days will be held in the City of London, United Kingdom. Day 1 (22 March 2018) will be held at the historic Mansion House. Day 2 (23 March 2018) will be held at Herbert Smith Freehills – a leading London-headquartered Law firm.
