After a phenomenal launch event in 2017, Central Eastern Europe’s premier FinTech conference xCEEd has decided to expand its dynamic and experienced team. Mike Seaman will take on the newly created role of Conference Director to support xCEEd Founder, Pavle Ljujic, in the continued development of this vital regional FinTech showcase.
Mike has been organising events around the world for over 15 years and more recently ran the FinTech portfolio for one of the world’s largest events’ organisers – Clarion Events. Referring to the appointment, xCEEd Founder Pavle Ljujic said:
We decided to appoint Mike to help us take xCEEd to the next level. The potential in the CEE region is vast. It is a nascent market with an ambitious and engaged banking sector that is looking to leapfrog developmental steps in the evolution of financial technologies. We are investing heavily in xCEEd to provide a regional catalyst for FinTech and deploying Mike’s expertise and industry knowledge is an important part of that strategy.
Mike Seaman said:
I’ve been organising conferences and exhibitions for 15 years and xCEEd is genuinely the most exciting event concept that I’ve ever seen. I was impressed by the success of 2017 and I’m keen to see how we can take the next step and push the envelope even further for 2018. The vision is to create an experience that is truly unique, where interaction is managed, not accidental and where technology is seamlessly integrated into the delegate experience. We are serious about that innovation and we’ve created our own cryptocurrency which will be banked in a wallet inside the event app and can be spent at our on-site retail outlet. We will also be demonstrating a Bank of the Future via an Augmented Reality portal live on the exhibition floor. In addition, we are running an innovation showcase that gives our delegates the opportunity to meet the innovators behind the very latest disruptive technologies before anyone else. This kind of innovation just doesn’t happen at other events so I am genuinely excited to be a part of the event for 2018.
xCEEd is a FinTech conference that takes place on 21-24 May 2018 in Belgrade. In 2018, xCEEd will attract over 250 senior delegates from 14 CEE countries to meet, network and do business that will help shape the future of this exciting region.
