A virtual meeting of the Non-Performing Loans market
It is now estimated we will see a doubling or even trebling of the volume of NPLs seen during the 2008 financial crisis, resulting in the creation of significant new opportunities and challenges for the Non-Performing Loans industry.
This year's GLOBAL NPL conference took place as a virtual-only event, using a premium-level Conference App to facilitate high-quality global networking via instant video calls - this proved to be a very good way of demonstrating business continuity and on-going market presence.

Conference App

This event is not a simple Zoom-type webinar. It is much, much more!

As a registered delegate, you will have access to an App which will allow you to securely and efficiently view all sessions and network via video conferencing with business partners all around the globe.

Having tested the effectiveness of many Virtual Event Apps now available on the market, we have chosen a premium service that in our opinion, represents a major enhancement to the traditional conference experience.

Video Networking: A new way to do business
App Features & Benefits
Video Calls

Arrange secure, personal meetings with other delegates and communicate instantly via Video Conferencing. From the safety of your own office or home, you will be able to instantly communicate via video with key market players all over the world. This is a highly efficient and economical way of meeting new business partners!

AI Matchmaking

The App is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze attendee's profile and usage history to suggest people to meet. The more active you are, the more accurate the suggestions will be!

Meetings Scheduler

Use a personal calendar to list your meetings, the sessions you wish to view and the times you are available to meet, all in one place! This is a highly efficient way of organizing your time before, during and immediately after the two days of the conference!


Since access to the Conference App will be made available a few days before and after the event, both Content Viewing and Video Networking will be available for longer than the duration of the conference itself!


As a Sponsor, the App will give you the freedom to add whatever marketing materials you wish to the online pages at your disposal to engage with potential new business partners.  Add videos, offers, reports – it’s up to you!


The App will allow all delegates to join specific, targeted Discussion Groups with leading Investors, Servicers and Originators. As the Organizer, we will set up themed discussions for you to join. We will also set up Discussion Groups related to each session of the conference to maximize your involvement!

Polls and Q&a

Other benefits of the App include the possibility to use a WhatsApp-type system to chat with other delegates, the possibility to participate in online discussions and Q&A sessions and also, to participate in polls. All of this adds to the experience of attending this event!
