What is FIMA?

The FIMA Community

After 14 years of FIMA events, data management leaders know these are the three days annually to learn strategies for the coming year and beyond. From the biggest financial institutions, Department of Treasury, insurance agencies, to disruptors like Twitter and Pandora, this is where the data community meets to set strategy with confidence, with exclusive insights from seasoned leaders.

An Interactive Experience

No back-to-back presentations here. Our format is specifically designed to help you learn more, faster. A variety of session types (like roundtables, fireside chats, creative boardrooms, panel revolutions, ‘bank tanks’ and more) means you'll takeaway more, new, well-rounded perspectives.

Ideal Networking

Meeting over 400 of your peers from across the industry sounds kind of overwhelming, but you’ll never be lost in a sea of name tags. There are over 12 hours of different formal and informal networking sessions to make sure you meet with the people you want to, from CDOs to risk and audit executives.
