The BIIA 2017 Biennial Conference is much more than a traditional gathering of credit and business information industry professionals.   This is a critical event for our members, customers, policy makers and regulators who are seeking information and insight on current and future challenges in a fast moving information environment.   

The overarching theme of the event is Embracing Digitization and dealing with the challenges of convergence in the Credit Ecosystem:  It is all about technology, digitization of data, financial inclusion of consumers, Micro businesses, SMEs and corporate trade credit providers.  Last, but not least, the requirements by policymakers to protect the privacy of individuals, protecting their identity, warranting cyber security, complying with Anti-money laundering (AML) and KYC, causes a conundrum for users of information services and our industry because of the lack of access to information.

Who will be attending?  BIIA has invited professionals from the lending community, the fast growing Fintech sector, credit registries, credit bureaus, e-commerce sector, the trade credit and rating businesses as well as regulators to learn how others are tackling the challenges of disruptive technologies.
