Fraud Conference Calendar 2018

2018 Fraud Conference Calendar

There are dozens of conferences held across the globe every year dedicated to sharing fraud prevention knowledge and solutions. To assist fraud prevention professionals and organizations looking for opportunities to learn, network and find solutions to their fraud problems, about-fraud.com has created a calendar of all the relevant events we could find in 2018. The events stretch far and wide from the Americas, to Europe, India and Southeast Asia. We will update this post year-round as we hear about more events, so check back every now and then to get the latest conference listings.

Each calendar listing contains information on what, when, where and why fraud professionals should attend a given event. You can click on the event name to follow links to the event page for more information and to register. For sales and marketing people working at fraud solution vendors we have also created a downloadable Excel file here to provide you with an exportable list of all the events. We also recommend that fraud professionals at merchants and financial institutions check our fraud solution providers page before attending trade shows to prioritize who to speak with and learn what to ask about.

To make sure that each and every event warrants the consideration of our community of readers and fraud prevention professionals, we have only included events that are focused largely on fraud. There are other fintech and payments events during the year where some fraud solution vendors exhibit and some fraud panel discussions take place that aren’t included here.
