  • qoute_ico01 IMTC USA in San Francisco was the best IMTC so far and everyone else thought so too. I think being in SF really brought balance to the attendees and a fresh look at fintech/blockchain/virtuals/emerging companies .
    In the compliance segment., Connie did a great job recruiting the right people and the topics and caliber of speakers were excellent.

    Laura Goldzung
  • qoute_ico01 Thank you for your tireless work to put on a truly unique and valuable conference. We appreciated each detail from the panelists to subject matters to the opportunities to network. I’ve taken part in many conferences, but this was one of the most productive three conference days I’ve taken part in. We look forward to participating in future IMTC conferences. qoute_ico02

  • qoute_ico01 This conference [IMTC USA] was a well-run, professional-grade conference in all respects and attended by high quality professionals. In my book, being referred to as a professional-grade operation is about the highest praise I can offer or receive. I look forward to continuing our relationship.qoute_ico02
