Credit Scoring and Credit Control Conference XVII

Wednesday 25th – Friday 27th August 2021

This is Europe’s premier conference for credit scoring and related topics. For the past 30 years, it has welcomed hundreds of delegates biennially with 2019 being the most successful ever with over 400 attendees from over 40 countries. The conference bridges the academic-practitioner divide.

It is the agenda-setting forum for credit scoring, with talks covering everything from current industry issues to the latest statistical research findings; and we are designing a digital version to achieve the same learning and networking objectives.

Credit Scoring and Credit Control Conference XVII (Online) will be accessible remotely and will use EventsAIR, a virtual event technology to provide a comprehensively curated programme.

Delegates and speakers will receive detailed joining instructions the week before the conference.

I very much hope you will join us for this year’s innovative online conference!
