The Series of Exclusive Summits
for Payments Leaders

Bringing together payments industry leaders and the most innovative suppliers for a personalised itinerary of one-to-one meetings, networking and interactive discussions and seminars.



About the PLS Series

Our Payments Leaders' Summits are private, invite-only events for selected senior payment leaders, decision-makers and budget-holders. 

We have shaken up the typical industry event format and focussed on creating value for our audience by facilitating meaningful connections, engaging cross-industry discussions, and high-level networking.

Our summits give you the opportunity to network with senior peers in a relaxed, private environment, hear and learn from the most influential members of the payments community, and provide a platform to engage in pre-qualified meetings with leading solution providers.
