LendIt China 2019 is Canceled
LendIt Fintech has officially announced that there will be no conference in China this year after 3 long years in the country. A blog post written by LendIt Fintech co-founder Peter Renton explained that calamitous events engulfing the peer-to-peer lending industry there, namely the abundance of fraud, and the government’s waning tolerance, has led them to believe that no lending companies will be interested in speaking, sponsoring or even attending this year.
“We will regroup in 2020 and hopefully will be able to bring our unique event back to China,” Renton wrote.
The decision only applies to their Lang Di Fintech China event. Their US event is scheduled to take place in New York this year on May 13-14 at the Javits Center. That event will be immediately followed by deBanked’s Broker Fair 2020 at the brand new Convene at Brookfield Place on 225 Liberty Street in New York on May 17-18.Last modified: December 12, 2020
