Money20/20, the world’s leading fintech show, and the place where money does business, unveils its agenda for the upcoming US show in Las Vegas, Oct 22-25. Over 300 industry leading speakers are expected to join Money20/20 USA this year. The agenda, which includes over 60 hours of incredible content, presents speakers from the entire financial ecosystem including the largest banks in the world, VCs, payment providers, lending & credit companies, startups and disruptors and the largest tech companies on the planet.

Some key themes of the sessions and content include current trust challenges in finance and the need for regulatory clarity. Disruptive tech, such as blockchain and AI and the return to fundamentals emphasizing business profitability over unchecked growth. We are also highlighting infrastructure and the need to focus on building utility reflecting a new phase for the industry.

Some of our already confirmed keynote speakers include Stephanie Ferris, CEO and President of FIS, who will be talking about leadership in a constantly shifting financial world. Anand Selvaesari, Chief Operating Officer of Citi and Zach Perret, CEO of Plaid, will be joining forces to show how different companies can work together to accelerate growth innovation in digital finance.

When it comes to regulation, we are covering this topic from just about every angle. Hester Peirce, Commissioner of SEC, will be interviewed on the topic of cryptocurrency regulation and market structure. Michael J.Hsu, Acting Comptroller of the Currency at OCC, will be interviewed on the topics of banking, fintech, financial inclusion, and new technologies.

Our keynote speakers Jelena McWilliams, Former FDIC Chairman and Managing Partner, Cravath, Swaine & More LLP and Randal Quarles, Former Vice Chairman, the Federal Reserve System and Chairman of the Cynosure Group, will share their experiences as ex-regulators and more behind their roles as current operators.

Earned Wage Access will also be highlighted in a panel with Marie-Elise Droga, Head of Fintech Partnerships at Visa and Gil Akos, Founder and CEO of Astra, along with Hali Mo, Product Manager of CT Cash & Flex at Cloudtrucks, and Alex Johnsson, Founder of Fintech Takes.

“I am truly looking forward to discussing the critical topic of ‘Time to Money: Instant Access to Earned Wages isn’t Optional,’” said Marie-Elise Droga, SVP and Head of Global Fintech Partnerships at Visa. “By reducing barriers to worker-initiated payment solutions and enabling immediate wage accessibility, we can revolutionize the financial landscape and create a more financially inclusive future. Sharing these insights during a distinguished forum like Money20/20 underscores the urgency and significance of the digital economy and this economic approach.”

“We are excited to unveil an agenda that brings the entire ecosystem of money together, helping the industry build bridges from the challenges of right now to the opportunities of what is next. The agenda reflects the constantly changing industry where trust and uncertainty, creative disruption, the return to fundamentals, and the momentum of building utility are at the forefront. We can’t wait to open the doors to Money20/20 in Las Vegas in just a couple of months,” said Zach Anderson Pettet, US Content Director at Money20/20.
