Global STAC Live, Spring 2020

STAC is going global, on-line, and live! To maintain social distancing, we have combined our spring New York, Chicago, and London events into a massive virtual event for the worldwide STAC community.

Join us for live panels, presentations, Q&A, and exhibits on the latest financial technology--with a particular focus on solving problems made more acute by the current economic crisis.

With built-in video, audio, and text chat, you can interact directly with speakers, see product demos, visit with leading vendors in their exhibit booths, and network with your peers--all without leaving your home or office.
