The 13 Biggest Fintech Awards Shows in 2024

The 13 Biggest Fintech Awards Shows in 2024

The fintech industry has seen a number of award programs crop up in the past few years. We estimate there are 40 to 50 different programs. Many are virtual affairs that cost $200 to $400 to enter, and the winners are announced with a press release and blog post. Far fewer include a competition and an event at the end to announce the winners. Our calendar is focused on the latter.

Why are award programs popular?

  • They recognize and celebrate outstanding achievements, creating good content for media companies and trade organizations
  • They help raise industry standards by highlighting novel new products, innovations and best practices
  • They offer valuable exposure for businesses and individuals elevating careers while improving business and fundraising results
  • Competitions provide intrigue, drama and fun

See our list of the 13 key Fintech awards programs below.
