Merchant Acquiring Conference 2019

13th November 2019, Glazier's Hall, London Bridge


Our 9th Merchant Acquiring Conference will take place on Wednesday 13th November 2019. The event is designed to highlight the major trends affecting European acquiring and provide unique insights into developments in the current market.

The conference is designed by industry thought leaders for industry thought leaders. We don’t ask speakers to pay, and we ensure there are no sales pitches. We had had great feedback from previous attendees, and for more information on who has attended and presented in the past see here,


We are tackling a range of future-focussed topics this year. We have a number of industry leading providers who operate in the real time and Open Banking market across both account information and payment initiation services. Chris Jones recently spoke to Tony Mclauglin from Citi to get his views on the future development of the market in a three part Dialogue.

We are also covering the emergence of regulated marketplaces across Europe, how mass transit provides a catalyst for contactless take-up across the world, and the latest views on SCA


We have a great set of speakers from the following organisations:

  • Tink who will be sharing their views on the status of PSD2 APIs across Europe and the implications for payments
  • Stripe will be sharing their latest experiences of SCA
  • Experian who will be talking about their experiences with Open Banking specifically AIS, account aggregation and risk/credit scoring during on-boarding
