Digitalisation is the be-all and end-all of our time. Yet sometimes things just have to be analog, like at our traditional Contovista Community Meeting – a casual “Friends & Family” event that we simply love. In 2021, we discussed the topic of “Open Banking Quo Vadis” online. The last time we were in person was so long ago!
The 2022 meeting, however, was held in person in Zurich. On the 16th May, an exclusive group of around 60 guests met for an exchange of ideas, three presentations, a panel of experts and, of course, an aperitif. The topic was “How Swiss banks can stay relevant and top-of-mind today!”
The venue was the Folium im Sihlcity – a truly perfect location. On the site of the former paper factory, industrial and media history (paper production!) encountered a spirit of optimism and creativity. After being used for industrial purposes, creative artists tried out new ideas there at the beginning of the 2000s. And now, in Sihlcity, experts presented us with ideas on the burning question of why and how banks should increase their relevance for customers – as well as dealing with the pressing megatopic of sustainability. Here’s a brief review for all those who were unable to attend.
