Payment Gateway Conference 2018

16th May 2018, Pullman Hotel, Brussels

In its third year, this event is focused on the rapidly developing European cards and alternative payment gateway market and was well attended by experts from across Europe’s diverse payments landscape. This year we are going to pay particular attention to:

  • Implementation experience from those building direct account access solutions
  • The growing demand for instant credit at the point of sale
  • The emergence of genuine omni-channel service offerings (rather than the theory!)
  • Machine learning in fraud
  • The future of the digital merchant proposition
  • How the travel industry may respond to instant payments


The event is well attended by 100-120 payments experts from across Europe. We have had very positive feedback on our past events, for more information see here.


We now have confirmed speakers from: Amadeus, BS Payone, Equiniti, FeatureSpace, PayworksSentenialToken, and TruelayerThe full agenda for the event can be found below.


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. For more information on who has attended and presented in the past see here,

“The PSE conference was full of carefully selected content that is hard to find in other industry events and sales speech free. Speakers from all across the industry, ensured a balanced view and discussion all long the discussions. The traditional public pitches were complemented with a much more interesting set of insights that one can hear less often.” Francesc Altisent, Adyen

The venue this year will be:  Pullman Brussels Midi, Place Victor Horta 1, 1060 Saint-Gilles, Belgium – located in the same building as the Eurostar terminal.


Truly content-enriched conference, with the most timely, relevant, and meaningful insights from a wide range of speakers from the Acquiring industry. Very useful – will definitely be returning, and recommend highly Ajit Ramachandran, Head of International Business Development, Barclaycard Payment Solutions

I always go home from PSE conferences with a bundle of new insights and fresh ideas that enable me to do my day job better and more creatively Oliver Gienow, Head of Card Acquiring, Unicredit CEE
