As we round out 2018 LendIt Fintech is completely focused on our 2019 events. Coming up first is LendIt Fintech USA 2019, our flagship event which will be held on April 8-9 in San Francisco at Moscone West. We expect 5,000+ attendees and will have some exciting names to announce as speakers in the coming weeks. If you or someone you know is interested in speaking at our event we recommend submitting a speaker application in the next few weeks.
The LendIt Fintech team has always taken pride in our content, but we also have invested heavily in facilitating networking opportunities both during the event and after hours. For 2019 we have added two new networking opportunities, the inaugural LendIt Fintech charity golf tournament and also a Sonoma wine tour and lunch. Both can be booked when you signup for LendIt Fintech USA. We will, of course, have numerous networking opportunities at the event itself including a return of Brella, the popular 1-to-1 networking app.

One of the highlights of the event is our LendIt Fintech Industry Awards Dinner which will take place on the evening of April 9th.
