Navigating the new normal - the changing face of financial crime

14th-15th October 2021, The Kimpton Clocktower - Manchester

2020 has been an especially challenging year for us all as the
Covid-19 pandemic launched us into different working practices, with criminals taking the opportunity to take advantage of new financial crime typologies. As economies are rebuilt a new normal is being established requiring improved understanding of this environment.

In 2021 IMLPO celebrates it’s 20th Anniversary, recognising the significant contribution that’s been made since the Institute’s inception in 2001, to keep its members informed in the ongoing fight against financial crime.

The 2021 IMLPO conference draws professionals from all parts of the regulated sector to keep up to date with the next generation of financial crime. It is an excellent opportunity to network with delegates from financial services firms, lawyers, accountants, gambling / gaming organisations, money service businesses, high value goods dealers and more.

IMLPO continues to work with both the public and private sector representatives including regulators, supervisors, legislators and law enforcement agencies to keep members up to date with the evolving trends and issues. The 2021 IMLPO Conference provides another superb opportunity to hear first-hand from relevant speakers on current themes, whilst networking with a diverse range of colleagues from the financial crime prevention community.

2020 has been a challenging year for us all, having to adapt to new ways of working and new financial crime methods and trends. 

Join us at the 2021 Annual Conference to hear from a diverse range of subject matter experts to keep you and your firm up to date.

The Kimpton Clocktower: Manchester

With its Victorian architecture and fresh approach to hospitality, Kimpton Clocktower Hotel is the perfect expression of its setting: Manchester, a city where tradition and modernity meet and where artisanship reigns supreme. Housed in a magnificent terracotta Grade II–listed building, Kimpton Clocktower has a history that dates back to 1890, when the building first opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters. Today, it’s a destination where glamour and luxury meets one-of-a-kind craftsmanship—and where there are new things to discover at every turn.

The Kimpton clocktower has a commitment to rigorous cleaning under the IHG Way of Clean programme. This includes deep cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants to keep guests safe throughout their stay. IMLPO will be working with the hotel and will be monitoring and following Government guidelines to deliver a safe, secure and successful conference.

Opposite Oxford Road Station and just a 10-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly, The Principal Manchester is a superb conference venue, easily accessible from London, the Midlands and the North East, either by train or the motorway network.
