CONFERENCE VENUE: InterContinental Phoenicia Hotel, Beirut, Po Box 11, Minet El Hosn, Beirut,Lebanon
We will be back in Beirut in June 2018 for our fourth year of the Euromoney Lebanon Conference.
This year we will turn our focus towards some of the most important tech trends in finance. We will be delving deep into cryptocurrencies, AI, cloud tech, blockchain, regulatory sandboxes and much more. We’ll explore if and how fintech can really change the Lebanese financial landscape – or whether the hype surrounding these new technologies is no more than a passing phase.
In so many cases fintech is considered as a stand-alone phenomenon. But we believe that the use or abuse of fintech is greatly influenced by the country in which it is deployed. Local market, infrastructure and regulatory conditions all determine what’s needed, what’s viable and what comes first. Lebanon is a unique country – with huge opportunities and strengths – but also with significant and unique challenges. We’ll be considering if Lebanon can leverage the energy and quality of its people to overcome some of these challenges by applying unique technological solutions in its vibrant financial sector.
We will, of course, be covering core Euromoney themes such as the macro-background, the wholesale financial markets and the role of key institutional players. We’re pleased that once again we’re working in partnership with the BdL and that H.E. Governor Riad Salamé will once again take part in a live on-stage interview and discussion.

Critics of bitcoin focus too much time on bitcoin and not enough time on the transformative power of the technology that underlies it – and its crypto-cousins. It’s like vehemently pressing home the design and safety shortcomings of the first ever motorcar, and ignoring the potential of the internal combustion engine that powered it.
Richard Banks explains how cryptocurrencies actually work, and why the distributed ledger technology that underlies them will change the world in ways we do not yet understand, in his two part blog.
Part 1: Genesis. "At a series of evening talks last week I explored the world of blockchain in the company of experts and hundreds of businesspeople from the Middle East. What surprised me were the widely varying levels of understanding, excitement and scepticism..." Read more here.
Part 2: Metamorphosis. "One of the frequent misunderstandings about cryptocurrencies revolves around the nature of anonymity in the system. If all transactions are recorded in the distributed, tamper proof, blockchain ledger how can the markets be fraudulent? This question goes to the heart of both the challenges and opportunities presented by blockchain technology..." Read more here.
