11 - 12 October 2022

Tuesday 11th Oct, 12.30pm - Wednesday 12th Oct, 1pm
The Grand Hotel, Birmingham

2022 has seen geopolitical events take centre stage, but for MLROs and Financial Crime Professionals a few things have remained abundantly clear for a while: the scale of the problem is not getting any smaller. Innovation and technology are not only the hallmarks of increasingly sophisticated criminals, making it more difficult to contain and minimise the threat, but they are also some of our most important tools in fighting organised crime.

Besides providing timely updates from law enforcement, government and private sector bodies, our 2022 conference will be taking a close look at the innovation and technology themes which are shaping the landscape we operate in, ensuring that you’re equipped with the most up-to-date industry knowledge.

Join us in Birmingham for this fantastic 2-day event to learn from leading experts and network with other professionals from across all regulated sectors including financial services, law, accountancy, gambling and gaming and more!

Birmingham's original Grand Hotel re-opened in May 2021
