Some 140 senior executives will share their experience and approach to shaping the future of the equipment and financial services industries. Participants will include Fortune 500 companies, tech startups, OEMs, capital providers, publishers, fintech’s and more.

The CEMC was launched in 2016 and co-founded by Currency Capital and The Alta Group to foster a community of leaders focused at the intersection of the equipment finance industry and financial technology.

Charles Anderson, CEMC executive director and CEO of founding sponsor Currency Capital, said, “We are excited to pair up, at this year’s summit, industry leaders representing companies of all sizes and from a range of industries. Everything from adoption, invention and investment will be discussed and the broadest array of perspectives will be shared. Nothing’s a better catalyst for change than having leading, like-minded industry leaders together to drive disruption across asset finance and purchase.”

Sandhills Publishing is the CEMC 2018 official sponsor.

“Since joining the event last year, it has been exciting to forge relationships with other members of the community and work hand-in-hand to affect meaningful change in the asset purchase and finance industry,” said Shawn Peed, COO at Sandhills Publishing.

As in previous events, discussions will be kept private to encourage the free exchange of ideas among participants.
