Benefits of attending

Over the course of this programme, you will hear from some of the world’s most experienced practitioners and academics, meet and network online with colleagues from across the industry, and develop your own thinking. Most importantly, the conference is a chance for you to test, shape and share your ideas, away from the day-to-day challenges of meetings, emails, and ‘to do’ lists.

You will have the opportunity participate in:

  • Plenary sessions: hear from keynote speakers and have the opportunity to ask questions.
  • Presentations: hear speakers from credit scoring consultancies, banks and other financial institutions, and universities, with the opportunity to comment and ask questions.
  • Networking: informal and formal opportunities to get to know fellow participants and expand your professional network.

Conference fee

In addition to the presentation programme, the conference fee will include three keynote speeches, workshops, delegate networking opportunities, and the opportunity to meet with exhibitors.
