If you’re like most financial institution marketers, the first quarter of your year is consumed by the drive to build momentum, implement new initiatives and ensure existing programs are rolling along — all while continuing to prove your team’s effectiveness to C-suite decision-makers. Even if it’s being held in a warm location when you’re buried under snow and cold, a conference has to be really amazing to draw you away from all that busyness.
Deluxe Exchange 2017 has all the makings of a can’t-miss conference: a warm location in Phoenix, Arizona, industry-leading speakers, great food and entertainment, and abundant networking opportunities. Make sure you read to the end of this blog to get your cyber week discount code, it’s our best offer of the year!
Here are just a few highlights of what’s in store for you Feb. 6–8, 2017 in the Arizona Biltmore:
For the first year ever, the Deluxe Exchange event will be highlighted by two keynote speakers from outside the industry. Political journalists Fareed Zakaria of CNN and Sam Stein of the Huffington Post will both deliver keynote speeches on Feb. 8. Zakaria hosts CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS airing on Sundays. Stein covers politics for the Huffington Post, and has worked at Newsweek and appeared on MSNBC.
From an event venue that’s been an Arizona landmark for 85 years, to an off-site dinner at one of the Phoenix area’s premier dining destinations, there will be plenty of time for fun and great food at DX17. Nestled in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, the Biltmore offers on-site golfing, swimming, tennis, indoor and outdoor fitness facilities, and guided tours around the local area. While our guests come for the networking and great learning, they leave talking about how much fun they had.
Deluxe Exchange attracts many of the best professionals in the industry. Rub shoulders and share ideas with around 500 of your peers. Gain the benefit of their experiences. Brainstorm solutions and innovations informally or in a public forum. You’ll even have the chance to interact with most of the event speakers in a way you just don’t get at most other events!
Additionally, our session speakers enjoy celebrity status within the financial services industry. For example, Mintel’s Lily Harder will discuss the rise of the digital consumer and how the industry should respond, and Alyson Clarke, a renowned and respected analyst with Forrester Research, will talk about the future of the branch driving cross-sell through customer advocacy. We’ll also hear from Shirley Inscoe, senior analyst for Aite Group; Jim Marous, owner and publisher of Digital Banking Report, and Dave Robertson, Managing Director, Commercial Banking Solutions for Novantus. We’ll also have Sean Rodriguez of the Federal Reserve to offer insights on what the Fed is doing to improve the U.S. payments system.
Each year, attendees give the Design Lab high marks for usefulness, informational value and for being just plain cool! In the lab, we share with you all the great things Deluxe is currently doing and give you a preview of new things that are in the pipeline.
