The Future of Payments: Instant, Open and Everywhere is an exclusive two-hour lunch which will feature an expert panel and an open room discussion. Taking place in a private room at a 4-star restaurant, our invitation-only group of 40 senior technology and business leaders will convene with three simple goals in mind:

  • To learn from each other
  • To network with each other
  • To enjoy a fine lunch

Innovation, regulation, and competition are driving major digital transformations across the entire payments ecosystem. As a result of these drivers, payment applications need to be “Instant, Open and Everywhere”. Accomplishing each securely and with scale is a challenge. Real-time payment platforms increase the need to analyze and prevent fraud in real-time. Open Banking mandates by regulators such as PSD2, have accelerated the use of Open API’s for external collaboration in markets all over the worlds. Consumers and enterprises are expecting consistent global delivery and experience with their payment applications but data sovereignty and cloud availability differ around the world.

We will cover the following questions:

  • What does the movement to instant or real-time mean for your products? What does that look likely in the U.S. vs globally?
  • How are open API’s changing the way your business collaborates? What have been some of the unforeseen challenges? How are you overcoming them?
  • How are you leveraging platforms to deliver services globally?
40 senior business and technology leaders from the payments industry
