Extended conference program
The RegTech Convention 2017 features a range of innovations to meet best the requirements of the attendees. The initiation of RegTech in the 2017 convention title signifies that 2017 goes beyond our usual coverage of topics related to the full spectrum of Abacus products to now include special tax reporting themes to serve the interests of our FiTAX and EasyTax users. This year’s extended conference program features eight specialist conferences and user groups for banks, insurance companies, and regulators.
New event format „Meet the Experts“
For the first time, the RegTech Convention will be offering extended coffee breaks to provide the opportunity to meet our regulatory and technology specialists in our new “Meet the Experts” event format. The selected topics have been drawn from the results of a user survey. Additional topics can still be suggested until autumn by responding to an online questionnaire. Anyone interested can register for the „Meet the Experts“ format on the event website.
Announcement: Abacus360 Hackathon on November 28, 2017
„Collaboration for Innovation“ is not only a motto, but reality; for example in the development of our new software generation Abacus360, where we work closely together with our customers and Alliance Partners. Abacus360 provides many additional components enriching the functional scope by an intelligent toolset allowing banks for tailor-made optimization of regulatory reporting processes, regulatory analytics and regulatory management.
