As we announced this morning, LendIt, organizers of the largest conference series dedicated to connecting the global online lending community, has chosen us as its agency of record.

LendIt hosts three annual conferences that examine the fast-growing online lending marketplace. Around 4,000 decision-makers from more than 30 countries will attend the company’s next event, LendIt USA. This event will feature a keynote by entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel as well as keynotes by Renaud Laplanche, founder and CEO of Lending Club; Ron Suber, president of Prosper Marketplace; John C. Williams, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco; and presentations by many other industry leaders.

LendIt USA will also feature PitchIt@LendIt, the largest competition for startups in online lending. Eight finalists will present their companies to an experienced panel of judges in one fast-paced session on the first afternoon of LendIt USA.

We immediately recognized the importance of what LendIt is doing in convening the key players in the online lending marketplace. LendIt 2016 is going to be the gold standard not just in lending but across the whole FinTech space. We are thrilled to be working with LendIt, to raise the show’s profile and help it build even deeper relationships with the media.

Peter Renton, CEO and Co-Founder of LendIt, had this to say: “Online lending is a massive disruptor of the conventional lending process. Any disruptive force merits discussion and examination, and providing a forum for the industry to do this is our mandate.

“The people at Vested share this perspective and have the extensive knowledge and network needed to help us execute a historically successful event for this fast-growing industry.”
