We are ready for Fintech Meetup 2024 in Las Vegas… Are you? 

Fintech Meetup will take place at The Venetian in Las Vegas on March 3-6, 2024. This is the fintech networking conference’s fourth year. However, 2024 marks only its second year as an in-person event and its first year at The Venetian. 

Why should you attend? As they put it: “Fintech Meetup is where 5,000+ leaders from fintech, banking, payments and lending come together to shape and create the future of fintech.” We couldn’t agree more.

Since its inception as a virtual event in 2021, Caliber has sponsored and attended Fintech Meetup. We are here to tell you what you can expect from the event and where you should prioritize your time for maximum return on investment.

Pro tip: use the mobile app to navigate easily to the company booths you want to visit. There should be lots of hands to shake and plenty of swag during Exhibit Hall hours (Monday and Tuesday only). 

Caliber will be present in a private meeting room on the lower level at Marco Polo 802. Let us know if you’d like to come by and have a chat!

Fintech Meetup has its own unique and useful spots: BankTech Ventures Pavilion, Women in Fintech Lounge, the Nook Pods area for sneaking a quiet moment, and the space and technology to facilitate 45,000+ 1:1 meetings and connections.
