Virtual Financial Industry Event Guide

William Mills Agency has been producing our annual Trade Show Guide for over 15 years. Unfortunately, this year, many events have been cancelled. However, we are excited to see the fintech community respond with an outpouring of virtual conferences and webinars. To help everyone keep track of these events, we are organizing an online directory.

If you are hosting an upcoming virtual financial services event between May 1 and Labor Day and would like to be considered for inclusion in the guide, please send event details to kt@williammills.com

Maximizing Market Share with Value-Added Digital Payment Services
17 -Jun and 20-Aug | Allied Payment Network
Financial institutions profit most when they earn the primary banking relationship of the customer. To gain and retain this relationship, it’s important to understand what today’s consumers demand from their chosen digital banking relationship. The harsh reality is community banks and credit unions are losing their grip on these valuable relationships. Consumers are utilizing digital payment services now more than ever, but increasingly they are doing so away from their financial institution's digital banking resources. Despite the fact that 53% of consumers say bill pay is the most important mobile banking feature, only 27% of them make online payments through their financial institutions (down from 40% in 2010). Every financial institution interested in its reputation for leading the digital experience through providing the money movement services consumers demand needs to take notice.
