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.
The 7th PSE Acquiring Conference focussed on the acquiring and on-risk elements of the transaction acquisition market, and is designed to complement the gateway focused event held in Brussels.
We explored a wide range of topics this year from the impact of new PISPS services on the card acquiring market, to the evolution of acquiring ISOs and the experiences of European merchants in Latin America.
We had a high level of engagement from the senior (c-level and heads of) audience from across the payments landscape including acquirers, merchants, gateways, card schemes, private equity, and industry suppliers. See the list below for this year’s attendees.
We had some great feedback on the event from the attendees, here is just a flavour:
– “Great selection of topics and content, very relevant”
– “Great range of topics and perspectives from different players in value chain.”
– “A good range of relevant content and very little selling”
– “Very comprehensive coverage and an excellent broad based conference that attacks both local (UK) and global issues.”
– “Interesting agenda with a clear focus”

This event focussed on the continuously evolving cards and alternative payment gateway market and was well attended by experts from across Europe’s diverse payments landscape. We received a 100% promoter score from participants, reflecting the high quality of the event.
We had speakers from: Adyen, AltaPay, Bambora, Bird & Bird LLP, Compliancy Services, Corestar Partners, Mastercard, PayPlug, Pay360, SafeCharge, and Walker Morris. See the 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.
Presentations and videos from the event are available below.
