Payment Gateway Conference 2019

27th June 2019, Pullman Hotel, Brussels


PSE’s Payment Gateway Conference attracts payments experts from across Europe. The conference agenda has been defined without the need for an Advisory Council for content because it is designed by those who work day-to-day in the acceptance world.

At this year’s event we had an excellent range of speakers from Bird&Bird LLPElavon, GalittKonsentus, optile, PPRO, Receipt Bank and Zooz. In addition, PSE spoke about a number of interesting topics.

The presenters tackled a range of topics including:

  • Its time to switch – why the future of payments is open
  • PSD2 – the latest on Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and open banking
  • PSD2 Access to Account – the challenges of TPP identity and regulatory checking
  • Building a best in class internal local payment method capability – an acquirer’s perspective
  • Open payment ecosystem – a technology, built to generate revenue streams via smooth cross-selling and data exchange
  • Piloting eMerchants across SCA rapids – how to get through it all in one piece
  • The value of digital receipting for SMEs – an ISV perspective
  • Why are we still struggling to meet global eMerchant payment needs?
  • Shifting from channel-centric to customer-centric models of engagement


Unlike other acceptance events, PSE focuses on getting interesting speakers to cover topics that deliver new insights on the payments business. We specifically prohibit sales pitch presentations, and we do not require speakers to pay to present. 


You can see the presentations from last year’s event here. The event is attended by senior experts from across the payments landscape – for a list of who has attended in the past see here. We have always had very positive feedback from attendees, with a 100% promoter score.
