Why the FSF Conference?

The aim of our next conference is to put innovation front and centre. We want delegates to leave feeling more curious about what's possible for the sector and a better understanding of the types of innovation that can help us get there.

  • 100% of 2020 attendees surveyed said they would be back and would recommend an FSF conference to a colleague
  • Earn CPD points and stay ahead of the game by gaining meaningful knowledge targeted especially to your sector.
  • You won't break the bank: We encourage you to bring members of your team so have set registration at $400 + GST (half the cost of other financial services sector conferences).
  • Hear valuable insight from industry leaders and regulators, and have the opportunity to contribute to thought-challenging discussions about the innovative tools that will allow us to succeed as a sector.
  • Enjoy plenty of opportunities to reconnect with your sector peers, build new relationships, and engage with our speakers.
