Leasing Life’s conference provides the ideal setting for the industry to come together to discuss its progress in this ever growing digital world; to consider the macroeconomic trends driving its strategic role across Europe and to prepare for future challenges affecting its particular place in the financial world. For its 14th edition Leasing Life Conference and Awards 2018 moved to Tallinn, Estonia to bring together asset finance professionals and industry disruptors in an active discussion of the key issues facing the leasing industry.


The leading asset finance event of the year, Leasing Life Conference and Awards moves to Tallinn, Estonia in 2018 for its 14th edition.

As banks across Europe wrestle with the challenge of deep digitisation of their businesses, two additional forces are gradually re-shaping leasing and asset finance across the region. The growing importance of responsibility for asset lifecycles, combined with the asset-light, service-led model pioneered by the sharing economy, have the potential to re-define the conventional role and perceptions of leasing. With far-reaching implications for the distribution, pricing and operations of asset finance businesses.

Based on three pillars taking in insights from adjacent markets, the external factors driving transformation, and opportunities for internal optimisation, this year’s Leasing Life Conference explores how Europe’s leasing industry is responding to the value chain opportunity – the operational, and strategic, implications of the paradigm shift, and the role that technology must play in transforming the industry so that it thrives in the digital age.

Our conference agenda leverages expertise from across Leasing Life’s research and publishing portfolios. Developed to polarise the vision of a smarter, safer, more efficient future for the leasing industry from new perspectives.

The event is an opportunity to share ideas, discover trends and network with peers, while accessing insight to exclusive research and case studies delivered by the industry’s thought leaders.
