„Zürich meets Basel“ June 15th 2017, 4pm – 6pm, Hotel Radisson Blu, Basel

After last year’s successful meeting between the two Swiss cities Zurich and Basel, which was held in Zurich, the two Cantonal Departments of the Economy of Basel-Stadt and Zurich announced another joint-event – this time being held in Basel on June 15th. Digital transformation in the finance industry will be the topic of this year’s „Zurich meets Basel“.

Finance experts see big potential in the blockchain technology. It will not only transform products and processes in the future, but also change the role and business models of financial institutions. Do you want to learn more about the basics of one of the major new technologies like blockchain? Which applications are best suited for the finance industry? How do payment systems of the future look like and what implications will they have on central banks? Can risks associated with this new technology and with virtual currencies like Bitcoin & Co be adequately assessed?

Learn more about what opportunities and challenges these new technologies hold for the finance industry and what they mean for banks, regulatory authorities and central banks. Listen to the talks and panel discussions where business, academic and regulatory experts share their insights.

A networking reception will follow after the official program, where attendees can make new connections.

Mark your calendar. The event is free of charge.
