The vision for BAI Beacon is to provide meaningful answers to the key questions that you are facing as a financial services leader.

BAI Beacon is an event where ideas come in and blueprints come out.

Can you explain the “BAI Beacon open campus” concept?

The BAI Beacon Campus helps you move easily move from panel debates to case study presentations, from peer discussions to fintech demos. The layout is also designed to inspire informal huddles with thought leaders and more networking opportunities, helping you make the most of your experience.
