The Fintech Festival 2023, held on September 27-28 at the Royal Paragon Hall in Bangkok, was a showcase of the latest and greatest in financial technology from Thailand and around the world. The event featured over 200 exhibitors, including payment solutions providers, exchanges, and other fintech companies.
B2B Payments and Exchanges in the Spotlight
One of the most notable trends at the festival was the focus on B2B payments and exchanges. Many of the exhibitors were offering solutions that can help businesses to streamline their payment processes and to access new markets through cryptocurrency trading.
This trend is not surprising, given that the B2B payments market is expected to grow to over $200 trillion by 2025. Businesses are increasingly looking for ways to make their payment processes more efficient and cost-effective. Fintech companies are offering innovative solutions that can help businesses to achieve these goals.
For example, one exhibitor at the festival was offering a solution that allows businesses to make cross-border payments in real time and at low cost. This solution could be a game-changer for businesses that need to send or receive payments from overseas.
Another exhibitor was offering a platform that allows businesses to trade cryptocurrencies securely and easily. This platform could be a valuable tool for businesses that want to invest in cryptocurrencies or to accept them as payment.
Conferences and Workshops
In addition to the exhibition hall, the Fintech Festival 2023 also featured a number of conferences and workshops. These sessions covered a wide range of topics, including:
- The future of payments
- Cryptocurrency regulation
- Fintech for B2B businesses
- Blockchain in the financial industry
