P2P Lending at the Money2020 Conference

by Peter Renton on September 20, 2012

Next month in Las Vegas is the inaugural Money2020 conference. You may not have heard of it but they are billing themselves as a “groundbreaking event for emerging payments and financial services”.

The list of speakers is pretty impressive, even more so now that my name has been added to the list… Yes, I will be participating in a panel on p2p lending along with Renaud Laplanche of Lending Club, Kirk Inglis of Prosper and Steve Rabago of ZimpleMoney. I am curious to see how many of these cutting edge financial types are interested in p2p lending. I will report back after the conference.

Here is the official speil from the conference organizers about Money2020:

Money2020 Expo is a groundbreaking event for emerging payments and financial services, bringing together innovators in money to create the definitive industry community. Whether you’re established or startup, if you’re working hard to disrupt the status quo, Money2020 is for you.

Money2020 spans the entire long tail of the evolution of money — from novel saving solutions, to new spending value propositions, to evolving forms of lending.

If you are interested in going they have given me a special 20% off coupon to share with my readers. The coupon code is PRENT2020. And if you decide to go be sure to let me know, I would love to catch up.

So you’re not paying the fee for some of us to go & cheer for you. Or to lob some softball questions that you can then hit out of the park? :)

I am afraid not. I will rely on softball questions from the paying audience. I imagine in a general conference like this there will be plenty of them.

I haven’t been to a conference/convention in Vegas in many years. Are these $1400-$2000 prices average for attending financial conferences.conventions?


Bryce M. September 21, 2012 at 5:31 pm

Yeah, $2k is out of my budget. We’ll count on you to recap the important stuff!


Dan B September 21, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Yeah, I’ll be washing my hair during the days of the conference. :)

I really don’t know the going rate for these kinds of conferences although I can tell you that the Financial Bloggers Conference that I attended in Denver a couple of weeks ago was less than 10% of the cost of this conference.

Peter, I can’t wait to read your post after the conference. I always learn a lot and benefit financially from following your blog. I am in the process of getting my prosper account funded at 25k (+ 1k bonus–thanks to you)! With a p2p account like that, I am beginning to feel like a big-boy investor (although I realize it is chump change compared to your account(s).

Always beneficial information. I thank you very much!

Thanks Tim, I appreciate your kind words. And congrats on your new account at Prosper. Let us know how it goes.


Dan B September 22, 2012 at 9:54 pm

I’m not surprised.


Dan B September 22, 2012 at 9:55 pm

I’m not surprised that the financial bloggers conference was so much cheaper, I was trying to say before I got cut off.
