We expect over 300 thought leaders from around the globe to meet in London to exchange ideas and experiences aimed at advancing Digital Currency and AI use in payments.

What is it?

1 Week of Cutting Edge Payments Research, Policy, and Technology Education & Networking

Come for one and stay for both! Whether you are a Digital Currency or AI expert or novice, don’t miss this opportunity to learn and network about both industry changing topics in one week!

The Digital Currency Conference is a premier event that focuses on the technology and design aspects of both central bank and private digital currencies. The conference brings together policymakers, regulators, and technology & innovation experts to network and discuss all aspects of digital currencies. The 2024 conference theme is Views on Use: Exploring Actionable and Real-life Use Cases and the Importance of the User Experience.

The Central Bank AI Conference focuses on a central banker’s perspective on future applications of artificial intelligence, be it at the central bank or institutions under the central bank’s regulatory purview. The conference brings together central banks, regulators, financial services, and FinTechs to explore how AI affects central bank operations, regulations, research, and policy. The 2024 focus of the event is AI Considerations & Conversations: Exploring the landscape of how central banks and financial services are using and studying AI for regulation, research, workforce, and policy.

Being new and rapidly evolving areas of study, in addition to industry-leading educational sessions, we are also curating in-depth tabletop discussions and networking opportunities to ensure all delegates leave London with meaningful takeaways and connections.
