BI16_Fav_144wBank Innovation Israel 2016 registration has officially opened today. The only Western fintech event in Startup Nation, the 2016 Bank Innovation Israel will take place 1-3 November at the Dan Tel Aviv. The event is presented by Bank Innovation, one of the world's leading fintech blogs. Hundreds of fintech professionals attended the first Bank Innovation Israel last year, not just from the Middle East, but from around the world. In all, 45 different financial institutions participated last year, with 55% of attendees being C-level executives. Among participants, 96% rated their overall experience "good," "very good," or "excellent," while 90% of surveyed attendees said they would recommend the event to a colleague or friend. And still, we will improve on the event in 2016. Notably, we've instituted several changes for the 2016 edition. The agenda has been reconstructed for a more productive and invigorating experience. BI Israel will take place over three days, with the first day dedicated to one-on-one meetings between startups and fintech investors and banking professionals as part of an expanded relationship with the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute. The IEICI was established in 1958 as a non-profit organization by the government of Israel and the private sector to promote Israeli goods and services exports, and trade relations, cooperation and strategic alliances with overseas companies. The second day of the conference will be dedicated to high-level discussions and demos from startups in Bank Innovation INV, the sister accelerator to Bank Innovation Israel. Finally, a third day will feature demos of hot fintech startups Israel and around the world, as well as a tour of the fintech startup ecosystem in Israel, with stops at cool accelerators and VC firms around Startup Nation.
