Overview

Catalyst Corporate's Economic Forum has a new name, a new format and a new home.

Future Forums, a four-day conference comprising two adjoining Forums, will continue to offer hard-hitting strategy-informing economic outlooks and balance sheet management tips. But, beginning this year, it will also include a full lineup of the latest payments and technology trends.

Attendees will hear experts speak on timely topics such as crypto-currency and artificial intelligence, including panel discussions tackling payments, credit union management and other hot-button issues.

Future Forums offer two forums in one. The Economic Forum will begin Monday morning, October 1 and continue through lunch on Wednesday, October 3. The Payments Forum will begin with a welcome reception Tuesday evening, October 2 and continue through Thursday afternoon, October 4.

Catalyst Corporate is also introducing this event at a new venue, located in Frisco, Texas. In addition to hundreds of dining, shopping and entertainment options in the area, the brand new Omni Frisco Hotel is adjacent to Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters.

Yes, you'll get an opportunity to see those headquarters, as well as attend a Wednesday session led by the NFL's all-time leading rusher, Emmitt Smith.
