    We speak frequently of disrupting the financial industry but yet, we rarely talk about how outdated and dull our events are. It's filled with canned corporate speak and rehashed ideas repeated over and over again on stage. In that spirit, Fintech Barcamp @ Langkawi would like to throw everything you know about events out the window. Join us for waves of knowledge and splashes of fun and networking by the beach at Fintech Barcamp @ Langkawi More details here: https://fintechnews.my/fintech-barcamp-langkawi/ Tickets may be purchased here : https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fintech-barcamp-langkawi-tickets-46707854450
