For the past seven years PSE Consulting has run a series of conferences for payments professionals which focus on the transaction acquiring, gateway and point of interaction markets. The conferences are designed to highlight key activities and trends in the European payments market, and allow groups of like-minded people the opportunity to exchange their views.
This event focusses on the continuously evolving cards and alternative payment gateway market and is well attended by experts from across Europe’s diverse payments landscape. We have continually received a 100% promoter score from participants, reflecting the high quality of the event.
We already have confirmed speakers from: Adyen, AltaPay, Bambora, Bird & Bird LLP, Compliancy Services, Corestar Partners, Mastercard, PayPlug, Pay360, SafeCharge, and Walker Morris. See the draft agenda below for the topics covered in the conference.
Unlike most European payments conferences we do not ask our speakers to pay for the privilege of speaking at our event. This ensures that attendees hear more than generic sales pitches. Instead, we ask our speakers to provide their perspectives on the future of the market, war stories on their experiences in launching new services, their views on best practice etc.
The event will be held, as last year, at the Pullman Hotel in the Gare Du Midi in Brussels.
