Last year, the World Economic Forum called Africa the “world leader” in digital and mobile banking. There’s no doubt that banking in Africa has undergone significant changes in the last few years and that it will continue to change and grow in the coming years.

How can business leaders prepare for this? How has the landscape shifted? And, most importantly, what opportunities does this create?

The Banking on the Future with EFT Corporation Conference, taking place from 13 to 15 May 2024 in Victoria Falls, will bring together C-suite executives from more than 70 of Africa’s premier banks to address these pivotal conversations. Attendees can anticipate indispensable insights from keynote speakers as well as valuable networking opportunities.

As a leader in the digital payment ecosystem, EFT Corporation (EFTCorp) aims to provide a comprehensive exploration of the digital banking landscape in Africa and the transformative potential it holds for businesses and communities alike at this event.
