About The Banking Scene

Connecting organisations and people,
helping to shape the bank of tomorrow

The banking landscape continues to shift severely. Low interest rates, new market entrants, fast fintech developments and new rules force the industry to reinvent itself. Our quest for the future of banking is locally oriented and spiced by international ideas and inspiration.

A community tale:
The story behind The Banking Scene

The Banking Scene

The Banking Scene is an active banking community and network organisation for the Benelux financial industry and beyond. It inspires bankers during their journey to transforming the sector into a more innovative and agile version of its current self.

Passionate about banking and related technologies, our mission is to accelerate networking. We do this by offering this essential platform that connects banking professionals and that sparks up thought-provoking dialogues.

"The Banking Scene absorbs you into the turmoil of the financial landscape and gives you a clear view on the themes that keep us awake" Peter De Wit, Strategic Development Manager, Beobank

We continue on the positive vibes of the previous years and we extend our scope to Amsterdam to get you inspired and to discuss the current and future state of banking.

The Conference in Amsterdam

This year's theme will be "TRUST". We will discuss the value of trust in the banking and payments industry with the objective to answer a few essential questions:

  • Why would organisations and people continue to do business with banks?
  • How can the industry make sure to remain trustworthy in digital times?
  • What are the key challenges?
  • Are regulations such as Mifid II, PSD2 and AML providing the right framework?

The energy and vibrant discussions during the sessions and breaks are exactly why we organise this kind of events. So we stay loyal to the concept of the first edition: an afternoon full of inspiration, followed by a few drinks and food.

We meet in Circl, built around sustainability, and right in the center of Amsterdam. We believe there is not better place to link 2019's theme (Banking for Humanity) with the one of 2020!
