About The Roundtables
IFN are pleased to announce a series of online Roundtables bringing you engaging, thought-provoking analysis of the most topical and stimulating themes currently within Islamic and sustainable finance, and FinTech. Each 75-minute session will take place during March 2021 and will feature a moderator joined by three industry speakers for an informative, lively and interactive dialogue. The Roundtables will be streamed to our live audience via our platform and social media channels, and full-length videos will be posted to our website. As part of an extensive pre- and post-event marketing and promotion campaign each Roundtable will be followed up by an exclusive report and a podcast, both accessible via www.islamicfinancenews.com.
Each IFN Roundtable will feature an independent moderator who will be responsible, with REDmoney’s guidance, for preparing, managing and facilitating the session. The moderator will be joined by a maximum of three other speakers.
The IFN Roundtable Series will be marketed extensively to our extensive international database. Each Roundtable will be broadcast on our platform as well as live streamed on IFN social media channels, with full-length available for viewing on our website post event. Sessions will be scheduled to attract the widest possible international audience.
Each event will be complemented by an exclusive follow-up Report, published in conjunction with all supporting Partners and distributed to the entire IFN global database, ensuring event Partners reach not just those in attendance, but tens of thousands around the world. This is truly unique. As the only Islamic finance event organizer with a truly global publishing arm, nobody else can offer such an opportunity. All panellists will feature in the cover story.
An Introduction to 2021
At REDmoney, 2020 taught us much about the state of the events business. What works, what doesn’t and how to continue delivering unparalleled programs to our global audience.
It’s a fundamental element of our business going forward, and we will continue to adapt to ensure we remain relevant and our events remain the industry’s best.
The global appetite and requirements for converging has shifted and now more than ever, we are strategically planning our events to adapt to these changes in the face of disruption without compromising on the quality of knowledge transfer and outreach.
Technological advancements have given rise to exciting opportunities in developing new formats that allows unlimited real time interaction remotely.
Moving forward, we will deliver a blend of physical and online events, ensuring the best of both worlds. Physical interaction is important to many, whilst travel and time away from the office isn’t always necessary to reach new markets.
For 2021, through careful research and planning, we have curated bespoke events online and offline with your interest in mind.
