When and where is it on?
REGTECH 2019 – The Regulatory Climate is taking place on Tuesday March 12th at The Citywest Hotel Dublin. The event will run from 11am – 2pm.
How many years has it been going?
This is the first year of the event but with the agenda looking so interesting and registration going well we will be looking at making it an annual event.
What was the inspiration to start it?
Regtech provider ViClarity have recently formed a strategic partner with The Mizen Group and together the formalised the idea for the conference.
Ireland has become home to some of the leading Financial Services and RegTech organisations in the world. Irish companies operating in the RegTech space are among the best in the world with seven Irish RegTech companies having been included in the latest RegTech top 100 list.
The inspiration for the event is to highlight the solutions and innovations available on the doorstep for Irish Financial Services organisations along with providing an update on the latest in the regulatory climate in Ireland and beyond.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
We have lined up some excellent keynote speakers ranging from regulatory experts to technology experts. The exciting part of the event is it is going to be a very interactive session. There are a number of panel discussions incorporated in the agenda to allow for an interactive session with the audience.
There will also be exciting live demos of some of the innovative RegTech features being used for Risk & Compliance by Financial organisations.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
This free event provides fantastic opportunities to meet and speak with some of the leading experts in both the regulatory and tech sectors. The event has a limited number of spaces so the attendees will have plenty of time to network with industry professionals.
There is also a great opportunity to see what innovative technologies your colleagues in the Financial Sector are using on a day to day basis. The event will bring together like minded professionals who all have a shared passion for RegTech and Risk & Compliance.
Who will be speaking?
Some excellent guest speakers have been announced so far. Peter Oakes from FinTech Ireland and formally of The Central Bank of Ireland will be delivering a keynote speech on the day. We also got a great mix of regulatory experts such as Tom Butler from UCC & GR3C, Deepa Keswani from The Mizen Group & former member of the compliance team at Commerzbank NYC.
On the technology side we have got speakers such as John Ogie Sheehy, CEO of ViClarity, Ed Doyle from Kyckr and Patrick Kelly, CEO of The Mizen Group. These are just some of the speakers announced to date, there are some more exciting announcements to come in the next few days.
