learning & networking
October 12th and 14th
Over 10,000 dignitaries and staffers will be in town during the IMF annual meetings. Two days prior to the meetings, the CBDC Think Tank will host its annual CBDC Summit.
Because the CBDC space moves rapidly, the need for information exchange continues grows and the CBDC Summit is the premiere conference for central bankers, regulators, financiers, entrepreneurs and heads of state to convene, discuss, learn and drive the conversation forward.
The CBDC Summit was first announced in January of 2020, to be held October of that ill-fated year. We return in 2022 for fully in-person sessions.
