The Seamless global series is set to launch its third international fintech and e-commerce event, ‘Seamless Europe’, in Berlin from 18 to 19 October 2023.
Organised by global events company Terrapinn, the Berlin-based Seamless event will become the last of 2023; with at least five more to come across the globe in 2024.
Europe has been at the heart of the fintech and digital commerce revolution over the past two decades. Technological innovation, evolving consumer expectations, and a regulatory environment that favours competition have facilitated the creation of a plethora of digital-native entrants to the European market.
The exhibition will be free-to-attend and visitors will be able to view all of the content on the show floor, including E-Commerce University, Start-Up Stories Stage, Fintech Seminar, Digital Marketing Seminar, and Home Delivery Seminar.
Seamless Europe’s Start-up Zone will also feature over 200 start-ups in the European payments and e-commerce sector. Attendees can familiarise themselves with the industry’s newest technology and network with those changing the future of the European market
Ralph Burgess, project director at Terrapinn Middle East, explained why the event series is kicking off in Europe: “European banks and retailers want to create better digital experiences, both in-store and online including; wanting to design new digital products, wanting to build better partnerships with fintechs and e-commerce platforms and discovering and integrating new technologies into their products and services.
“Globally Seamless has always brought the market together in this way which has proved to be a hugely beneficial platform for the industry to meet and flourish.”
Currently, Seamless also has plans to hold events for Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, Africa and Saudi Arabia throughout 2024.
