I stayed for two reasons.
As I began to take in the exhibits and meet people, I began to feel that I was witnessing a watershed moment in financial history. Learning about the achievements that were showcased, I sensed that the digital revolution has now advanced into an area that was considered to be an impenetrable fortress: the interaction between government regulators, financial institutions and SMEs. The fewer difficult and time-consuming transactions SMEs have, the better their chances are for survival. SMEs are what makes the world go round! This event was for everyone, actually, not zillion dollar companies.
The second reason I stayed was that, simply, everyone I met seemed to be genuinely trying to help others. There was a good feeling at the event.
I learned many things about how the delays and complications associated with starting and/or operating an SME are being reduced. My small way of thanking these unsung heroes is to list them below. These people and companies should be celebrated for their perseverance, attention to detail and their accomplishments.

Plus, as a writer, I found Phrazor extremely interesting!
All of this awesomeness was showcased and supported by a company whose name says it all: SUPERCHARGER.
PS My "writer sensibilities" started flashing when I learned this phrase: the right to be forgotten. To the contrary, this event was unforgettable.
