xCEEd 2018 was a 2 day event with a mix of panels, workshops and speakers from all over the world with just the right mix of networking to make it one of the most effective and collaborative events of CEE.
xCEEd 2018 delivered bigger and brighter than last year with new concepts from xCEEDium, the conference cryptocurrency, through the xCEEd Gift Shop, to the Augmented Reality “Branch of the Future”.
xCEEd 2018 was the year for interconnectivity with the xCEEd app, an interactive communications portal for the conference which we have kept open allowing the connections made at the conference to continue to grow and prosper.
Anna Maj (European Women Payments Network):
“Rich in thought-provoking content, great practical insight of both local and regional fintech players, perfectly balanced speakers’ line up, outstanding workshops delivered by the industry thought leaders and practitioners. Pioneering mindset!
Great networking and fantastic social vibes. Building the unique xCEEd fintech community. One of the best fintech/payments events I have ever attended!”
Laura K. Inamedinova (LKI Consulting):
“xCEEd conference is a wonderful mix of informative discussions and quality networking. I would personally recommend anyone in the FinTech industry to attend this event!”
John Berghout (Barclays):
“xCEED 2018 is an exceptionally informative, engaging and thought-provoking conference – one of the best I have attended in the last few years. In addition to the speakers, the engagement of the attendees was also excellent – especially the opportunity to earn xCEED’s own cryptocurrency that delegates could use at a gift shop on site. xCEEd is undoubtedly the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) leading Fintech event – and it was a privilege to be invited to such a fabulous experience.”
Faisal Khan (SENDER):
“It was my first time attending the xCEEd Conference, 2018 that was held in beautiful Belgrade, Serbia. From the moment you step off the aircraft, Pavle & Team had ‘everything’ arranged for you (emphasis supplied). The conference radiates professionalism and this was clearly evident by the people present. There were some great discussions during the day, and even more casual conversations during the informal outings (one of the many that Pavle had arranged for). Certainly made friends, shared knowledge and learned a lot for sure. Looking forward for next year’s event.”
David Hensley (Cash Services):
“As a relative novice in fin tech I spend four days with this growing community and it was a fantastic event. The panel sessions were engaging and informative and I understand a little bit more about the challenges and benefits of collaboration within this emerging market and its impact on financial services. I’m looking forward to future events.”
Konstantin Peric (Bill and Melinda Gates foundation):
“A high-content conference, notably with a great update from knowledgeable speakers on PSD2, with a bonus crypto-conference-currency that is fun to use and understand.”
Duena Blomstrom (Emotional Banking):
“There was no way to distinguish that the team behind xCEED wasn’t organising events professionally by looking around the event which was packed, well structured, entertaining and dotted with original touches and boasted some amazing content. Hats off, pulling an event of this magnitude off in a way that’s memorable and useful for dialogue and business is a rare treat.”
“xCEEd 2018 was a refreshing FinTech conference with an interesting experiential approach. What I liked the most about it was the balance between the rich panel sessions, the presentations in between and the enlightening stands, which managed to bring the talk about FinTech innovation closer. Great start, great potential, great opportunity to learn and network for anyone within the space.”
