Credit Strategy is delighted to announce the return of Europe’s largest gathering of credit and financial services professionals
Credit Week 2020 will see the return of some familiar and much-loved events including the Parliamentary Reception and the Credit Summit, sponsored by Experian, along with a range of new and exciting additions.
The week attracts more than 100 speakers including MPs and celebrities and will take place between March 16 and March 20, 2020 in London.
On Thursday March 19, the 12th Credit Summit will once again act as the week’s flagship event, with nine distinct conferences covering the full depth and breadth of the credit profession.
These include three new conferences within the Credit Summit: Cards & Payments, Credit Tech Expo, Leadership & Culture.
Alternative Lending, sponsored by Lantern, Credit Risk & Collections, Future of Credit, Open Banking, Trade Credit hosted by CICM and Utilities & Telecoms all return to the Credit Summit in 2020.
The Women in Credit Forum represents an exciting expansion of the Women in Credit brand, which has championed recognition of the work women do across the credit sphere through the Women in Credit Awards for two years. The Women in Credit Awards will, of course be returning for a third year at the Credit Awards Gala Dinner and the unveiling for the new Credit 500 to mark the end of Credit Week on Thursday, March 19.
The agendas for each of the Credit Summit conferences will be launched weekly until the end of November, while, for the first time, Credit Strategy will produce a Credit Week Roundup on Friday, March 20.
Away from the summit, Credit Strategy will once again be returning to the corridors of power with the Parliamentary Reception.
The Parliamentary Reception is an ideal opportunity for credit industry professionals to meet face-to-face with the government and build up a picture of the challenges facing the industry.
Held in the Houses of Parliament, liaising with government and regulatory powerbrokers, around 200 attendees will meet to discuss the industry’s regulatory requirements for the coming years and deliberate on challenges and observations with those setting the regulatory tone.
The fourth Credit Awareness Week will also return to shine a light on how consumers can gain more control over their finances and examine what work is being done to improve the picture, particularly in relation to those with thin files. At the last count, around 5.8 million ‘credit invisibles’ were identified.
As in previous years, Credit Strategy has partnered with Brella across Credit Week for attendees to arrange meetings.
Alongside all this, look out for new events in Credit Week, including:
Credit Strategy is proud to continue its partnership with CICM throughout Credit Week’s events.
CICM chief executive Philip King said: "Credit Week 2020 will bring credit professionals together and raise the profile of the profession across industry and government. Credit Week is a key event in the calendar, CICM sits at the heart of the credit community, and we are pleased to be working together with a common purpose.”
Credit Strategy chief executive Luke Broadhurst said: “In just three years, Credit Week, has gone from concept to central pillar of the credit community. As we approach the 4th Credit Week, we continue to influence government, regulators, industry and the individuals within those separate spaces. Many suspect there might be volatility ahead and credit and risk professionals will play the key role in ensuring all businesses navigate any difficulty fully informed and with the necessary balanced approach.”
