LendIt USA 2017 – An Agenda Overview – Pushing the Boundaries of Financial Innovation

LendIt has rapidly grown over the past 4 years and we are now one of only a few large events companies in the financial services sector. We started way back in 2013 when we held our first event in NYC that burst at the seams with 375+ attendees in a small conference room in Times Square.

LendIt USA 2017 is returning to New York City in March, and it is going to be our largest event yet with over 5,000 attendees expected.

LendIt is delving deeper into lending, with new tracks dedicated to:

  • Insurtech
  • Blockchain
  • Digital Banking
  • Financial Inclusion
  • Investor Insights
  • Digital Mortgages
  • Structured Products
  • Digital Wealth Management
  • Fund Manager Presentations
  • Student Lending
  • ABS Financing for Equipment & Autos
  • Consumer Lending
  • Small Business Lending
  • Commercial and Residential Real Estate Investing

What Makes LendIt Unique? 

We care about our attendees and want you to be successful. As industry insiders, we’re here to help. Our strength is in our content and community.

What’s New At LendIt This Year?

LendIt is always jam packed with content.  There are just so many interesting companies and themes to cover, we feel like a kid in a candy shop when we build our agenda!

To ensure that people don’t feel overwhelmed, the LendIt USA experience will improve by:

  1. Having 8 tracks of content (down from 16 last year)
  2. Hosting longer sessions to go deeper on the most important topics
  3. Designating time for more networking with a new concierge 1-to-1 meeting program
  4. Expanding the expo floor allowing more companies to join the show
  5. Recording every track and making them available for post-conference viewing. There will also be simultaneous translation in Chinese in 6/8 tracks.
