The Best Future Finance Events Trends
Our London event venues have seen an increasing number of changes since the pandemic. As the world becomes increasingly digitalized and faces challenges such as the ongoing climate crisis and the possibility of recession due to the war in Ukraine, the financial services industry has had to adapt and change. With these changes come trends in finance events that we believe are important to note.
Clear dedication to sustainable events
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects will continue to be a high priority for financial services companies in 2023.
Sustainability will be the main area of focus. Sustainability was identified as a top priority for investors in PwC’s Global Investor Survey 2022. Consumers are also looking for financial services companies to become more sustainable.
When it comes to events, integrating sustainability into event design from the beginning will be essential.
Attendees, sponsors, and speakers may well enquire about the tracking of carbon emissions and other sustainable practices in the conference venue. If your organisation is just starting on the path to sustainable events, there are many options, such as using venues that have proven sustainable practices and prioritising sustainable food and drinks options. Cavendish Venues tick these boxes and more.
Digital features of In-person events
Digital transformation continues to unsettle the banking and finance industry, and events are no exception.
The last three years have seen events evolve into a growingly digital channel; a change driven by the sudden shift to virtual-only events during the pandemic. Even with the return of in-person events, digital features are likely to stay.
Finance event planners must embrace digital features within their events. User-friendly mobile event apps can offer personalised planners and a smooth way to network between attendees, making the integration of digital events less stressful.
Data privacy and security are crucial
Digital events and features may have many good factors, but can come with the risk of data privacy and security issues.
Using an event technology platform can help ensure that your attendees’ data are secure. It is important to choose a trustworthy platform that complies with accredited industry security standards.
