Merchant Acquiring Conference 2017

16th November 2017, Glaziers Hall, London

The 7th PSE Acquiring Conference focussed on the acquiring and on-risk elements of the transaction acquisition market, and was 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 have had very positive feedback on our past events, for more information see here.

We had a great range of speaker from Alston & BirdBoku, Bottomline Technologies, eBanx, eNettEVO, GoCardlessPayzone Ireland, and Valitor. For the full agenda, please see below.

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

Very useful – will definitely be returning, and recommend highly Ajit Ramachandran, Head of International Business Development, Barclaycard Payment Solutions
