At LendIt we are always looking to improve our conferences from year to year and part of that is adding to new offerings for the community. For 2017, the LendIt team decided that creating an industry awards event was the next project we would tackle. We are doing this because there are many companies who are doing great things in online lending and it’s important to recognize their accomplishments. The first annual LendIt Industry Awards ceremony and dinner will take place on March 7, 2017, following the wrap of Day 2 of LendIt USA 2017.
One of the important parts of running an awards event is the nomination process. We invite you to complete a nomination application for your company in one or more of the below 18 categories. Nominations have just opened and the deadline is December 21st, 2016. You can find the nominations for each award and learn more about the event on the LendIt awards website. Judging will be done by over 30 industry experts.
