Rakesh Nugam, Managing Director for Barclays Capital was an attendee at last year’s event, and found real return on investment. In his own words: “I think it’s phenomenal – I really enjoyed it. The summit’s been informative and useful and I’ve met a lot of great contacts.” In agreement, James Lee, Managing Director for UBS, says: “The quality of the delegates has been fantastic. I haven’t been to a summit like this before.”
The summit is set to provide the perfect environment for key decision makers to liaise and collaborate with their peers, discuss organisational strategies for the future and establish meaningful working relationships with a dynamic selection of delegates, vendors and sponsors. Offering an alternative to the traditional conference format, the summits provide true innovation and value for money.
Nick Atrey, FST US Summit Director for GDS International – the global events company behind the event – says: "The November 2012 program will be our 14th summit for the North American financial services community and we wouldn't have come this far had it not been for the support of our analyst partners, IDC Financial Insights, our ever growing group of senior IT executives from the financial services institutions and the equally important group of leading technology and services companies that have sponsored our summits for the last ten years.”
He continues: “A special mention must be given to the CIOs and CTOs that form our Advisory Board, and have helped us shape the content and agenda for the event to ensure that it is truly independent and end-user led. Our goal is to become the premier gathering for the financial services industry and if the November summit is anything to go by, we are well on our way!"
