Europe’s premier conference for credit scoring and related topics was held from 30 August to 1 September 2017.

The Credit Research Centre was proud to host the 15th Credit Scoring and Credit Control Conference which took place over 3 days (30 August to 1 September). The Conference was held at the John McIntyre Conference Centre, part of the University’s Pollock Halls campus.

Over the three days delegates heard plenary presentations by Charlotte Gerken (Bank of England); Mark Somers (4Most Europe); Tony van Gestel (Dexia Group) and Stefan Hunt (FCA). In addition, the full and varied programme featured talks ranging from current industry issues to the latest statistical research findings.

Delegates also had the chance to experience the social side of Edinburgh with an organised whisky tasting session or tours of the Real Mary King’s Close or the Palace of Holyroodhouse. And for the energetic, there was the chance to join two members of the organising committee on an early morning 5k run round Arthur’s Seat!

This was all topped off by the Thursday evening Conference Gala Dinner which was held in the impressive setting of the National Museum of Scotland, where delegates were wines, dined and entertained. A huge thank you to the UEBS Events Team for the great organisation ensuring everything ran smoothly.
