Market regulation and security

With a regulation tsunami on its way and an ever-increasing focus on security within the industry, our attendees joined our expert speakers for a comprehensive update on payments regulation including sessions focussing on PSD2, open banking and GDPR. It was a chance to gain crucial insight and advice that will help businesses stay compliant and make the most of new opportunities.

FinTech and landscape evolution

With FinTech booming and more companies than ever jostling for position, what did these new players do to stand out from the crowd and how are the new products and services available changing customer expectations? This year you heard  from the very best in the industry and learned  how to set your company apart from the rest.

Future of banking

We have entered a new era of banking that is revolutionising the way consumers look after their personal finances. A new breed of digital bank proved  that a faster, more convenient and better banking experience is possible and many traditional banks started to take note. Our Future of banking stream gave a full update on the digital banking landscape. Read interviews with some of our speakers here.

Connected commerce

How patient are  consumers? As more and more retailers begin to offer seamless checkout experiences, customer expectations are rising and their patience dwindling. In a bid to help convert potential customers to sales, our thought leading speakers examined the power of eliminating the checkout queue and the importance of customer loyalty in this stream dedicated to retailers and other merchants.
