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 the gateway’s route to market by looking at the evolving ISV and ISO landscape.

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 are working on the agenda at the moment, but topics are likely to include:

  • Delivering payments as part of an integrated software solution – an ISV perspective
  • Managing ISVs as a gateway route to market – best practice and experience
  • Real time payments and the emergence of payment gateway PIPSP services
  • Managing an ISO sales force for gateway and acquiring services
  • Online fraud management in the world of AI
  • The evolving world of online payments in the global travel industry

If you would like to see videos and presentation decks from last year’s event, they are available here


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 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.
