    The Financial Innovation and Payments Summit was a cozy and relaxing environment where you able to gain insight through concepts relayed in short panel discussions but could also engage with speakers that caught your attention later; over cocktails or dinner. It allowed for conceptual and thought-provoking panels with detailed conversations. A nice show! Speaker
