Best Financial Services Marketing Conferences | 2022 Guide

August 15, 2022

Who doesn’t love a good marketing conference? You get to network with cool people, pick up a few shiny tips and tricks, maybe even see the sites or enjoy a meal in a new city. (#boondoggle)

Problem is, most marketing conferences are not designed for financial services marketers. I can’t count the number of times I’ve picked up a new idea at a conference only to have it shot down by my friendly neighborhood compliance team less than a week after I get back. (#nofun)

Fortunately, there are a lot of events aimed at the financial marketer audience, from FinServ-specific summits to FinTech/wealth management/insurance tracks within bigger marketing conferences.

Check out our list of the best financial services marketing conferences of 2022 to map out your best conference year ever – and let us know if we missed any!

  1. You’re missing one of the biggest conferences for credit unions in the country, CUNA’s Marketing and Business Development Conference. Happening in March 2019 in Las Vegas. Would love to get it featured. We see 500+ attendees plus FI specific vendors and offer tons of great sessions, breakouts, and networking opportunities. I sit on the Executive Committee for the Council and have attended this conference numerous times both as an organizer and as just a regular marketer. It’s a great way to connect with other marketers and hear what’s going on at credit union’s big and small in the way of tech, automation, design, and innovation.
