The Bank Administration Institute is to export its successful retail banking conference and exhibition to European shores.
Scheduled June 18 - 20, 2001 at the Hilton London Metropole, Retail Finance Expo - Europe 2001 will seek to emulate the format of the BAI Retail Delivery conference, held annually in the US.
Retail Delivery was last staged in Miami and attracted some 3000 financial services professionals and had a total conference attendance of 9000 people.
The European event is to be staged in association with Irish media group Lafferty. With the overall theme "Re-engineering the Legacy Bank", the programme will aim to address issues such as mobile networks, e-banking, aggregation, ATMs, cards and payments, as well as customer relationship management and branch and sales management.
The detailed conference agenda is now in development.
