Introducing Credit Week: Why you can’t miss it

How do you make the Credit Summit, the UK’s largest credit conference, even bigger? By extending it to a week of international events. Head of conference production Mike Jeapes introduces Credit Week - our major new project for 2017

In 2016 we witnessed the Credit Summit break new ground. We played host to 600 attendees, curated five conferences streams, held industry masterclasses, unveiled the 2016 Credit 100 and put together the UK’s biggest credit exhibition.


We received delegates from the biggest retail banks, traditional and non-traditional lenders, non-financial creditors and innovative emerging fintech lenders.


Our attendees travelled from Europe, South Africa and the US and our speakers ranged from TV personalities through to chief executives, chief risk officers (CROs) and those who implement policy. All in one day.


So how do you beat that?


It’s simple: By creating a week of conferences, meetings, networking events and industry parties, the like of which our audience has never seen.


We’re building a week-long series of events where the European credit industry will descend on Westminster for conferences, meetings, networking events and industry parties.


There’ll be two days of conferences and an entire day of programming focussed on European credit issues for our European colleagues.


We’ll be engaging the industry powerbrokers such as c-level execs at major lenders, the regulators and ultimately, government.


And of course, the Credit Summit will remain the focal point of the week.


We’re proud to announce we’ll be expanding the Credit Summit to re-introduce the Trade Credit stream alongside our partners at CICM.


Further new features for the 2017 Credit Summit include the Credit Strategy Boardroom, which will bring together C-level representatives from the major lending firms.


Rounding off the week, we’ll be hosting our black tie Credit 100 Gala Dinner. We’ll be hosting the 2016 members of the Credit 100 as guests of Credit Strategy and also be unveiling the Credit 100 for 2017.
