Hot Topics at Next Week's FinovateSpring

image We have a diverse bunch on stage at the fifth annual FinovateSpring next week. With 64 demos, many touching on multiple themes, it's hard to boil down the topics to a few soundbites.

But that didn't stop us from trying. We fed each presenter's keywords into a nifty little software app and created our first ever "demo word cloud."

I don't think anyone will be surprised there's a bit of attention being devoted to "mobile payments." But who would have guessed (prior to last year), that "rewards" and "coupons" would get so much attention. Welcome to the new world of ad-supported banking.

Here's the geographic distribution of the 64 demoing companies (click to enlarge). It's no surprise that we have 24 from California. But there's almost twice as many from elsewhere around the country and world.

Finally, here's a graphical representation of the job titles from our registration records:

And if you will be in the record-breaking crowd next week (thanks everyone!), here's the demo schedule which lists each company. See you in San Francisco.
