We’ll be exploring A View on the Future of Payments with an insightful presentation from Brendan McVey, looking at how we got here and where we’re heading.

Forthcoming regulation and industry standards continue to dominate the industry. As we’re mid-way between PCI SSC Community meetings and as there has been a recent flurry of activity, we are delighted to have a PCI & Payment Security Update from Jeremy King, International Director of the PCI Security Standards Council.

We’ll also be looking at the important area of GDPR and how the payments industry should be best addressing it with Richard Jones from Foregenix

Since the beginning of the year we have seen an encouraging number of new members joining Vendorcom. In the afternoon we will have a session showcasing just a couple of them: fintech and payments legal firm, Addleshaw Goddard; data centre, cloud services and connectivity leaders and Equinix; contact centre security solutions providers.

As we work more and more closely with merchants, we have partnered with and we will have a presentation from Founder Partner, Alex Schlagman whose motivational and challenging perspective on the opportunities on the high street and the role of payments will provide inspiration as you look to drive your business forward.

Following the eye-opening, for some, mesmerising, presentation on 3D Vegas at our December Conference we continue our look at how we can widen the use of payments as, fresh from the launch of Avenue Planet in Miami, Sanjay Daswani delves into the world of Immersive Payments in Virtual Environments.

It’s a wide reaching agenda and we’re sure that with both the inspirational content and great networking opportunities, the day will provide you with more than you expect from the average payments industry conference.
