About the event:
SFF x SWITCH was a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) and the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH), consisting of a week of events and featuring various sideline activities centred around innovation in FinTech and deep technology.
SFF x SWITCH featured various innovative technologies across five key sectors – FinTech, Urban Solutions and Sustainability, Health and Biomedical Sciences, Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering, and Digital Services – to prime business transformation.

The inaugural event attracted more than 60,000 participants from 140 countries. The event also saw a record 569 speakers, close to 1,000 exhibitors and 41 international pavilions.
