As the new Industry Marketing Manager for Financial Services at Akamai, I am thrilled to be attending my very first Edge Customer Conference! The Edge conference will provide a great opportunity to network with like-minded professionals, nurture existing relationships, and build new ones.
From October 21-23, the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami will be filled with attendees from leading financial institutions from around the globe, including; American Express, Bank of America, Charles Schwab, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, National Australia Bank, PayPal, TD Bank, USAA and many more. Last year, we had over 120 Financial Services attendees from nearly 50 companies globally. This year, with the addition of the Banking and Financial Services Forum and our guest speaker, Forrester Analyst, Ellen Carney, we are expecting an even greater turnout!
I am especially looking forward to the Banking and Financial Services Forum, where we will have a mix of individual presentations, roundtables, and panels. We are showcasing a number of presentations, inspired by the "TED Talk" format, bringing Ideas Worth Spreading to Edge. I hope to see you there!
