Paris Fintech Forum 2020

Join Us At Paris Fintech Forum 2020 As The Digital Age Continues To Create Endless Possibilities For The Financial Sector

Since its inception as a telegraphic services provider in 1851, Western Union has been a leader in cross-border, cross-currency money movement and payment services. Today, with our world class network and expansive footprint across the world, our company remains at the heart of the finance industry, playing a key role in enabling money movement for better around the globe.

We’re therefore very excited to be headed to the Paris Fintech Forum on the 28th and 29th of January. Held under the high patronage of M. Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic, this fair is considered one the most exclusive digital finance & Fintech events in Europe and the world. Led by our CEO, Hikmet Ersek, our team will engage with industry influencers and the press to discuss the issues and topics that define the sector today and will shape its future.

Hikmet will take part in a panel session titled: “Cooperation in Finance industry at digital age” on Tuesday, January 28th alongside Wim Mijs, CEO for the European Banking Federation and Ann Cairns, executive Vice chair at Mastercard. The panel will be moderated by Laurent Nizri, founder and CEO of Paris Fintech Forum.  

We’ll also be present at booth S34 in Exhibition Hall 1 to meet our customers and partners in the financial sector and inform visitors about our capabilities and the services that we offer to financial institutions around the world.
