The Sheraton Brussels Hotel,
Enabling transformational cards and payments innovation
SEPA and the PSD have drastically changed the payments landscape in Europe. New payments institutions have emerged, handing consumers an alternative to traditional banking products, while the European Commission’s vision for a more competitive and open payments environment has seen the birth of new card schemes which have the freedom and flexibility to offer innovative new services.
But what does this mean for Europe’s leading banks and card issuers?
First hand research, carried out with leading European banks, indicates that leading cards and payments professionals are keen to learn about the new business models and alternative channels e.g. mobile banking, prepaid cards, credit/ debit cards and e-invoicing that can both modernise services, reduce back office inefficiencies and increase profitability.
Clarion Events highly targeted inaugural Next Generation Cards and Payments Conference and Exhibition, will bring together an audience of guests from the cards and payments divisions of Europe’s top banks for a day and half to discover exactly how they can work with emerging players, what new card schemes can offer them, how they can make more money from their core business, and which channels can better serve their clients.
Speakers will include senior representatives from the European Commission, European Payments Council, leading banks, alternative card schemes, mobile banking specialists and pioneering technology suppliers.
Organised by Clarion Events, the UK’s largest independent events company with annual turnover of over £150 million, the team behind the Next Generation Cards and Payments Conference draw upon over 80 years of experience of hosting strategic conferences focusing on payments innovation, telecommunications, government and emerging technologies.
