Sessions You May Have Missed at LendIt USA 2016

Over 3,600 finance professionals joined us on April 11th and 12th for the 4th Annual LendIt USA in San Francisco. We were expecting a huge crowd (and we were right!) — therefore we prepared an agenda with diverse topics and close to 600 speakers.

We are committed to ensuring that LendIt’s attendees have access to as much content as possible. Knowing that you can’t be in two places at once, we videotaped all main stage sessions and collected 40+ speaker presentations.  Enjoy!

  1. […] We recorded all the sessions on the main stages as well as the China Pavilion and the company demos. These videos are all available on the LendIt site now. Most presentations are also available here. […]

  2. To Whom It may concern,
    I was an attendee at 2016 LendIt conference.

    Can someone email me the presentation or the recording of
    “Direct Mail In the Modern Era”. I wasn’t able to attend this session and would like to know the trend.
    Any help from your side will be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Anand, unfortunately this was not a session that was recorded. All presentation decks that we have are within this post.

  3. Nick Elders says:

    Wondering if the keynote slides will be made available. Some of the slides from the Lending Club keynote were very informative and insightful. Half the room was taking pictures with their phones, so if there are “confidentiality” concerns, I’d say those went out the window the moment the deck hit the screen.
