Organised by leading regional deal facilitation company Naseba, the conference will bring together over 200 leading Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) decision makers (CEOs, COOs, CIOs, CTOs and CDOs) to discuss the latest trends and disruptive tech such as RegTech, blockchain, robotics, AI and digital only banking.

The event will be hosted on board the Queen Elizabeth 2 at Port Rashid in Dubai.

The summit will look at the growing adoption of blockchain and its potential to reshape processes in finance and general business processes that intersect with finance. The event will include blockchain workshops for sectors including BFSI, logistics, government authority, food productions, luxury goods and healthcare.

Key speakers at the Fintech Summit include Nasir Zubairi, CEO, Luxemburg House Of Financial Technology; Peter Smith, Managing Director, Policy and Strategy, Dubai Financial Services Authority; Nick Lee, Authorisation Director, BFSI, Abu Dhabi Global Markets; Abdul Malik Al Sheikh, Senior Advisor, Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority; Max Liu, Co-Founder & CEO, EMQ.

Christopher Fernandez, CEO and Co-Founder of Block Gemini said, "Blockchain is going to play a key role in the success of financial companies in the near future. The world banking sector will save up to $20 billion by 2022 through implementing blockchain. The GCC banks have already started using blockchain in remittance, trade finance, Islamic banking, and soon we are going to see a lot of applications and services on blockchain. We are very excited that the agenda issues facing BFSI decision makers are fast reaching a decision crunch point, and the Fintech Summit is a proven catalyst in supporting action and facilitating effective partnerships and deals."
