iiBIG’s 9th Annual Education Finance & Loan Symposium, will take place in Washington, DC on May 24-25, 2017. This event has become known as the only conference of its kind to attract a 360-degree cross-section of all the key players in the education finance/student loan industry. Over 150 attended last year’s event – and early indications are that this year’s conference – like the industry itself - will continue this upward trend.
CO-LOCATED EVENT - Bank-Fintech Partnerships - WILL SHARE VENUE
The Cloud Computing Association (iiBIG’s sister organization) will be presenting its inaugural Bank-Fintech Partnerships event on the same dates and in the same venue as this year’s Education Finance & Loan Symposium. Cloud-based financial technologies – FinTech – are playing a growing role in the education finance and student loan space. Attendees of both events will share a common exhibit hall, networking refreshment breaks, luncheon and evening reception. Session times, breaks, and luncheon for both events will be synchronized so attendees of either event may attend sessions in the other at no additional cost. See: Bank-Fintech Partnerships for more information about this new co-located event.
The 9th Annual Education Finance & Loan Symposium will feature over 40 expert speakers and presenters – from both the private and the public sector – along with other key industry participants in the education finance and student loan markets. Interactive, roundtable presentations and discussion will focus on topics such as:
