Program highlights

On the main stage you will experience inspiring and exciting presentations on new technology and the future of finance and procurement. The English-only stream will cover topics e.g. on the financial process, competence profile changes and data analytics. Your hosts will be our very own Paul Taylor and Lars Madsen, the VP's for global sales and marketing at Basware. The main stage presentations that are not in English will be simultaneously interpreted to your ear phones.

The 2018 Connect master of ceremonies is sympathetic Mikko Kuustonen, known as a singer-songwriter, tv-personality and a UN Goodwill Ambassador, who has also been voted as the most positive Finn. At Connect he guides us in superfinance - we will also get to enjoy his music, that has earned him a stack of gold and platinum records.

Basware Connect evening will pamper us with the world class a cappella group FORK. Their show consists of music, dance, stand-up, theater and lightshow. You will be amazed!
