FinTech Media is a brand new event created exclusively for public relations and communications professionals in the financial community interested in meeting journalists covering FinTech. Based on our BAM events held since 1998 for universities, FinTech Media allows financial professionals to personally network with business and financial journalists in one place, at one time. The reporters and editors speak on three panels throughout the day. During the panels, the journalists will discuss their coverage areas in banking, finance, and FinTech and answer questions from the audience. We limit the audience to less than 100 so that after each panel, every attendee can meet each journalist. FinTech Media is produced by Wynne Events and KikiNetwork.
Past panels have included journalists from BusinessWeek, The Economist, Financial Times, Fortune, Reuters, CNN, Bloomberg, CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Associated press and many others. The conference will also include a luncheon, a best practices panel and an evening cocktail and networking reception. FinTech Media will be held in New York September 12, 2018 at the American Management Association, 1601 Broadway at 48th Street, in the heart of Times Square. The cost is $995.
