The committee has worked hard to put together an awesome event for the Equipment FInance industry this year. With the rapid pace of technological change we have stepped up our game and are bringing in new speakers, new topics, new interactive sessions.  We believe in creating an environment for an industry level conversation about technology and our industry, what is on the horizon, and how future trends impact how we must respond today.

Some of the highlights for this year's event:

  • Learn about the latest technology being applied to fraud prevention and how artificial intelligence (AI) has moved out of the realm of sci-fi to play a significant role in business today.
  • Understand the latest developments and innovations leveraging exponentially accelerating technologies such as the "Internet of Things" (IOT), Blockchain, Big Data, Machine Learning, and more and what it means for our industry.
  • Hear from the IBM Watson team on the latest applications for Artificial Intelligence in finance and participate in a Q&A with our exponential technology speakers.
  • Round table discussions on topics chosen by the audience.
  • Interactive discussion on how to successfully implement technology in an equipment finance company.
  • Overview of the impacts of the big accounting changes, how these changes impact more than just accounting, and what you can do about it.
  • Participate in a fast-paced interactive facilitated workshop where we take what we have learned and imagine and share stories of what we envision for equipment finance in the future.
