I’m super excited to announce that for the first year ever, we’ll have simultaneous translation into Japanese at The Future of Fintech (June 11-13, NYC).
We’ve already got 42 countries represented at this year’s event, and we didn’t want language to be a hurdle for the main stage (1100 people in the amazing Rose Theater).
If you’d like to take advantage of simultaneous translation into Japanese at the event, be sure to check the box when you register. If you already purchased your ticket and would like the service, let me know.
We’re contemplating adding Spanish and Chinese, so if you’re attending or would attend if we added those, let me know.
If you want to meet execs from global financial services institutions, there isn’t a better place than The Future of Fintech.
