At the start of the last decade, the term RegTech didn’t even exist. Now, according to Grand View Research, the RegTech industry is growing at 52.8 percent per year and will have a market size of $55.28 billion by 2025. With all that growth, there’s a significant need for education, networking, vendor assessment, and other ways for the industry to get together, compare notes, and drive the next wave of innovation.
Regulations continue to increase in their scope of coverage, reporting requirements, and the amount of security and proper data handling procedures that are necessary to operate a modern organization. Fortunately, developments on the technology side also continue to deliver more scalable and automated solutions, improve analysis, streamline processes, and help improve compliance oversight and control. The intersection between regulation and technology promises many interesting conferences this year — great places to learn, interact and develop relationships that will serve you well going into the ‘20s.
