Creating a safe, frictionless future 

20th Financial Services Event   |  25 - 27 November 2019, The Netherlands

On 25 – 27 November 2019, a host of senior financial services decision-makers and business leaders from across Europe will gather at the lovely Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin, Noordwijk in The Netherlands for our European NG Financial Services Technology Summit, to discuss the most pressing challenges – and opportunities – in Europe’s fast-moving financial services sector.

What is it?

Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.

How does it work?

Our summits are designed for executives looking to take their business to the next level – from market-leading brands to disruptive new entrants. As such, we’ve worked with some of the world’s best-loved and most forward-thinking businesses.
