Singapore FinTech Festival 2023 draws record 66,000 participants

Participants came from over 150 countries and regions, from just 115 in 2022.

The eighth edition of the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) drew a record 66,000 participants across four days, up from the 62,000 attendees in 2022.

Participants hailed from 150 countries and regions, an increase from the 115 countries represented in 2022, and featured a line-up of over 970 speakers.

Over 2,400 government and regulator attendees across 530 central banks, regulatory  institutions and other government organisations also participated in the Regulation Zone. 

A new Founder’s Zone provided a platform to match over 200 investors with 270 startup founders.

Over 240 mentorship sessions were also held at the Talent Zone, complemented by collaborations with  four Institutions of Higher Learning for certification programmes.  

The ESG Zone, meanwhile, hosted the launch of MAS’ Gprnt digital platform – a culmination of Project Greenprint – which will serve as a baseline for all businesses to seamlessly report their ESG information moving forward.  

The invite-only Elevandi Insights, taking place in 14 November, attracted 1,500 participants and hosted 28 deep-dive roundtables focussed on charting a course for technology adoption in financial  services in the year ahead. Key outcomes for each roundtable will be published by the first quarter of 2024.  

In a press release, the SFF organising team said that preparations are already underway for SFF 2024, which will be held from 6 to 8 November in 2024. Elevandi Insights, the curtain raiser to SFF 2024, will be held from 4 to 5 November.
