FinovateEurope 2020 Demo Brochure
Demo your latest financial services technology live, in front of 1,300+ C-level banking and enterprise execs, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, media and analysts.
Startups, established firms, and financial institutions with new innovations are encouraged to apply.
ONLY AT FINOVATE
Demoing companies are at the center of Finovate conferences, with two days dedicated to 60+ product demos on the biggest stage.
We don’t put demos on a side stage, in a track room, or in an exhibition booth – Finovate demos run as a single track on the mainstage in the general session with 1,300+ attendees watching the future of financial services.
As financial services expand, so does the technology featured at the show. Demo lineups are curated for diversity, to offer something for everyone. Past demos have included technology focused on customer experience, regtech, insurtech, wealthtech, security, identity, biometrics, blockchain, crypto, investment, onboarding, open banking, digital banking, lending, payments, and more.
We select demoers based on new innovations, whether they're from established leaders in the space or brand-new startups. If you're working on something new, apply now.
Who is in the audience?
Finovate's record of successful events spans 10+ years. Four core tenets have guided its growth:
Focus – demoers are the focus of the audience’s attention, on stage and at their stands in the exhibition area. This area is kept intimate to route interest to, and ensure quality networking for, demoers.
Format -- only demos; no shorthand pitches, slides, or videos allowed. It's critical for potential buyers, partners and investors to understand how to apply your tech and how it benefits them. A live demo is the best way to convey your value propositions and strike the interest of the people you need to meet.
Selectivity – Finovate curates the demo lineup from hundreds of inquiries to represent the breadth of new financial services technology. This ensures something for everyone in attendance and creates a diverse and influential audience to move the needle for those selected.
Exposure -- demoing is a powerful platform to find customers, network with peers, raise funding and discover partners. This includes exposure to Finovate’s robust website traffic, newsletter readers, and social media network, plus lifetime analyst coverage of company news, awards and wins.
EUROPE HALL OF FAME
While you’ve probably heard of these companies, you may not know they demoed at FinovateEurope over the past 7 years. In fact, it was their first Finovate conference!
They went on to become famous for unicorn status, acquisitions, funding, key partnerships with major financial institutions, and more. FinovateEurope was one step on their ladder to success – will you be next?

APPLICATION & SELECTION PROCESS
Finovate conferences are open to startup, established and public companies with new financial services technology. This results in a highly competitive selection process. Hundreds of inquiries and applications are reviewed when selecting the demo lineup.
While you may be contacted for more information, most companies are chosen solely based on their application. Please ensure the application is filled out completely with these criteria in mind.
Novelty: Is the technology new or with material developments? Do you have a substantial announcement about expanding your technology's reach?
Innovativeness: Is the approach original? How big of a technological/logical leap does it make?
Potential: What is the potential to make an impact? Disrupt the market?
Wow Factor: Does it make us sit up and take notice?
Diversity: What other applications are in the same space? Being different is good.
Entry Date: Selections for the demo lineup are made on a rolling basis -- the earlier you apply, the more likely you are to be selected. Also if we're seeing clusters of similar solutions, date of application may be the tiebreaker.
If your company is selected to demo at FinovateEurope 2020, the demo fee depends on the stage of your company and when you apply. Payment plans are available.
