IMTC ASIA is our second conference in the fastest growing region in the world!

After our first conference in ASIA in New Delhi in 2016, Manila will host the 2nd conference in the region in 2018. We are expecting all International Money Transfer & Cross-Border Payments institutions, Banks and other financial services providers, technology-based firms, fintech, all catering to the Filipino diaspora and people & companies needing x-border money transfers & services. Industry participants will converge to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the industry in Philippines and in the region as a whole. The financial system in the region is changing and everybody needs to be informed, partner, transform and innovate. Join us!

Help us plan the best industry event in the region!!

Financial markets are evolving at a faster pace than ever in history. Technology is driving the change shaped by globalization and the need to make x-border payments easier, faster and cheaper. Traditional institution face an enourmous challenge to re-invent themselves while start-ups need to convince end-users and drive them from established brands with more convenient services & product. We expect all institutions in the Philippines and representatives from regional hubs in China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, New Zeland as well as the countries whose corridors are propelled by the South East Asia Diasporas.

  • 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
