Thank you!

Thanks to the 500+ particpants from 60 countries who joined us for over 50 sessions at our first virtual European Microfinance Week.

EMW is a member-driven event which takes the pulse of the industry - a unique meeting point for knowledge sharing and an excellent forum for networking. In other years, as an in-person conference, in Luxembourg, EMW welcomes 500 professionals from all over the world - leading global experts, opinion-leaders, policy-makers and investors from the financial inclusion sector. And while the decision to take EMW 2020 online was a result of current circumstances, it also meant abundant opportunities – to bring the work, initiatives, ideas and discussions to a much broader international audience, while at the same time adapting the format of sessions to maximise interactivity and engagement.
