On 30 - 31 May 2019, the Microfinance Centre (MFC) held its 22nd Annual Conference to explore the implications of the digital revolution on financial and social inclusion. The event welcomed 409 delegates to Istanbul, Turkey representing EU bodies, microfinance institutions, non-government organizations, investors and fintechs from 46 countries across Eastern and Western Europe, Central Asia, the Caucasus and beyond.

Through 18 plenary and break-out sessions, the agenda allowed delegates the opportunity to learn about the practical side of digitalization in the financial inclusion sector through case studies, trend analysis and discussions of emerging best practice. Institutions offering digital solutions gave delegates hands-on experience with their services, and created a space to discuss what effective future partnerships might look like.
