The Inlaks Digital Summit is slated for October 18, 2019, on the theme: "Unlocking the opportunities in the Digital Banking Age."

It will explore the diverse opportunities technology offers to the financial and banking sectors and how African business leaders can harness it. 

The summit will include panel discussions, keynote addresses, networking sessions, product exhibitions/demo and an award recognition ceremony.

Speaking ahead of the event at its Corporate Headquarters in Lagos, Femi Adeoti, MD, Africa Operations, Inlaks noted that “For over three decades, Inlaks has thrived successfully in bringing authentic and innovative solutions to its customers.

In today's world of an unprecedented shift in digital tendencies across industries, every economic sector must be well-prepared for the imminent change to stay relevant.
