The content has been carefully curated to address my daily challenges. The sessions were spot on, heard from innovative banking professionals and I have acquired several strategies and ideas that I can’t wait to use with my team! Angela Rose, ATM Channel Manager, TCF Bank

I am so excited to find a community of banking and credit union leaders to interact and learn from! I really enjoyed the dialogue during the break out sessions and small group discussions! The interactivity was terrific and it was so nice to talk through obstacles we’re all facing with peers in this collaborative environment.

This was my first time attending Future Branches and it exceeded my expectations.  I was blown away by the amount of real-life examples and detailed benchmarks.  The senior speakers were inspirational and made me rethink the way that we conduct our business.

I hate going to events where I’m lost in the crowd and pitched to all day.  Future Branches is the opposite – I’ve been surrounded by my peers all day.  With tons of interactive and networking opportunities, I actually get to meet them!

Everything was beautifully managed, and we created at least three times more leads than at any other conference we’ve exhibited at in recent memory. ”

“I’m a first time attendee. I really found this conference to be unique from others because [Future Branches] has blended subject matter industry experts with leaders from Banks and Credit Unions who have ‘been there, done that’.

You can also just attend and listen if you prefer. I’m really glad I came!”
