FAQ

Q. Who should attend FinovateFall?

A. Anyone with an interest or stake in the future of banking and financial technology should come to FinovateFall. This includes anyone who is responsible for developing or marketing new products, anyone who needs to keep up to date on the latest innovations in the industry, and anyone who can benefit from the opportunity to view in-depth demos from cutting-edge startups and leading established companies.

Q. What topics do Finovate demos traditionally cover?

A. Presenters at Finovate events run the gamut of financial technology. Some areas that have been covered at past Finovate events are: debit rewards, alternative payments, person-to-person (P2P) lending, new marketing tools, security solutions, big data, mobile apps, social investing, personal financial management, youth banking, credit, and next-generation online banking platforms.

Q. What should I wear to FinovateFall?

A. There is no dress code for Finovate events, but you can expect the majority of the audience to be wearing suits and ties or similar business attire. If you are not sure what to wear, we’d recommend erring on the side of formality.

Q. Is there an official hotel for FinovateFall, or have you negotiated a special rate at a nearby hotel?

A. There is no official hotel for FinovateFall, and we have not negotiated any special rates at local hotels (although obviously the New York Hilton Midtown is where the event is being held). In the past, we’ve found that online travel websites are consistently able to undercut our “special” rates, so we recommend using Expedia, Hotwire, Priceline, Travelocity, etc. to find a hotel that looks good to you. There are numerous hotels in the immediate vicinity of the venue at a variety of price points.

Q. What is the refund policy for attendee tickets?

A. Assuming that there is no one at your company that you’d like to transfer your ticket to, the refund policy for FinovateFall is as follows:

  • For cancellations requested on or prior to July 31, 2016 we will refund 100% of the fee.
  • For cancellations between August 1, 2016 and August 24, 2016 we will refund 50% of the fee.
  • For cancellations on or after August 25, 2016 we will not be able to refund any of the fee, but we will still be able to transfer your ticket to another member of your team.

Please note: We will always honor cancellation requests made within 48 hours of purchase.

Q. What is the application and selection process for Finovate events?

A. Good question! Finovate events are open to startups, established companies, and financial institutions with new fintech innovations, so the bar to get on stage is very high. Each company interested in demoing their new fintech at one of our events must submit a written application. Based on that application, we’ll select the companies we’d like to invite to participate.

When selecting companies, we look at several criteria: novelty (newness of the fintech), innovativeness (originality of the approach), potential (degree of impact in the fintech industry), wow/X/cool factor, and diversity (comparison to the number of companies in the same “space” competing for a spot).

For each event, we receive far more applications than we have demo spots to fill. Given this competitiveness, one of the major keys to getting a spot is to have something new, innovative, and substantial to debut live on stage.

If you’re interested in demoing at one of our events, please send an email to the appropriate email address: europe@finovate.com, spring@finovate.com, fall@finovate.com, or asia@finovate.com.
