We are pleased to announce that the 7th BarCampBankLondon Tomorrow's Transactions “Unconference” will be taking place on Monday 10th February 2014 at the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA) at 1 Plough Place, London, EC41 1DE, with support from Consult Hyperion. (Please note that this is the day before Finovate London 2014.)

The aim of BarCampBank is to foster cross-sector communication and innovation around new business models in the world of banking and finance. It is organised on a participant-driven agenda around the future for financial services in the now-traditional unconference format.

We don't know what issues the delegate will choose to cover, but hot topics right now include Bitcoin and alternative currencies, mobile money, financial inclusions and identity and anonymity in the new economy.

if you have never been to unconference before, but have even the slightest interest in the future of money, banking or financial services in general then now is the time to take the plunge and join the conversation in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone learns from everyone else. Here are a few of the comments from attendees about the 5th BarCampbank:

"Really interesting, thought-provoking day. Will definitely attend future events."

"Great opportunity to meet some really talented innovators. Well-led discussions about a variety of topics; I'd love to attend the next one!"

"Stimulating in parts, illuminating in many areas, very pleasant atmosphere - above all quite encouraging. Having arrived with no particular expectations, I sat back to watch things unfold and was pleasantly surprised."

"Excellent discussion. I felt the organiser brought more structure to the sessions than other unconferences I have been to."

"Excellent opportunity to discuss some key topics in identity, payments & banking."
There will be a £10 charge for this event (payable via Paypal on registration or by card or Paypal on the day), which will go directly to one of the charities supported by Consult Hyperion.

    Excellent set up, participatory rather than being lectured at. I learnt a lot, it would be useful if they recorded the event and shared it online, similar to the NewFinance events.

      Oh , THANK YOU, Robin. Given that's a 'barcamp', I definitely thought it was going on over the weekend. Pity. Shouldn't have booked in that case...

      They do this every year. I agree, it's very confusing. Note to organizers, maybe next years event should be Barcamp Bank VIII ...

    Regional Banks have recently been given the go ahead by the government. Looking forward to next few months and finding out who is going to rise to the opportunity.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
