LendIt Fintech USA has rescheduled one of the most anticipated financial services industry events to September 30 – October 1, 2020.
LendIt was originally scheduled for a Spring date in New York City. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LendIt recently announced the event had to be postponed due to the obvious health concerns. This weekend, LendIt circulated that its annual conference has now been rescheduled for this fall – once again taking place in the Javits Center in Manhattan.

While most prognosticators expect the impact of the Coronavirus to have receded by the fall, the economic impact will be long felt. Fintech firms have been touted as being a sector of finance that is best positioned to support businesses struggling to survive the profound ramifications of such a financial shock. Once the COVID-19 dust settles a bit, it will be widely discussed how the financial services industry reacted to the pandemic. LendIt USA 2020 should be a good opportunity to compare notes.
