By Robert Cardworthy, Editor-in-Chief,

Conferences, exhibitions, workshops, hackathons, meetups and of course . . parties will dominate Fintech Week in London in mid-July.

The main conference/exhibition takes place at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, but other events take place across the City of London, Canary Wharf and “Tech City.”

The organizers of the fourth annual Fintech Week expect 600-1,000 conference delegates per day from over 50 countries and 3,000 – 5,000 participants in events throughout the week.

There are several tickets options such as tickets for specific events or you can purchase a full event pass and come and go as you please.

There will also be a huge, the largest ever, hackathon July 7th to July 9th. The Blockchain challenge is to come up with a unique ICO (initial coin offering). It's a bold challenge, but potentially highly rewarding. The Fintech Challenge will be announced soon.
