A year ago, it was unlikely that anyone seriously thought that the future of the banking industry was in doubt. Today, however, it's a serious question that is challenging many financial services professionals, especially those with responsibility for maximizing investments in IT. What is the future of banking in a post-subprime, post-bailout world? Which institutions will survive? Who will emerge as the industry leaders, and what will differentiate them?

At Bank Systems & Technology's 4th Annual Executive Summit, senior-level bank executives will gather to network, learn and share the best practices and strategies that are helping them lead their organizations out of the downturn and into the future of banking. Participants have access to the innovative and successful leaders who are redefining the ways banks interact with their customers, finding more transparent and effective ways to manage risk, and achieving much more efficient, productive and profitable operational and transactional processes.

This exclusive, invitation-only networking event will provide focused networking and educational opportunities to bank CIOs/CTOs/line-of-business heads and other senior-level IT decision-makers, in an unmatched resort environment. The Executive Summit agenda combines conference/seminar presentations, face-to-face business meetings, scheduled recreation and social events.

If your organization intends to be a player in the emerging financial services competitive landscape, you can't afford not to be part of BS&T's 2009 Executive Summit.
