What happened at the 2017 Summit?

The 2017 Summit hosted a very high calibre Speaker Faculty engaging with the most pressing industry themes. The Summit offered a highly interactive platform prioritising 3 key themes for industry leaders dissecting the challenges, opportunities and practical considerations for achieving the various objectives. Underlying these core themes was insight into the barriers to evolution in these areas including issues such as regulatory compliance, employee adoption and change management.

The core themes explored in the 2017 Summit included:

  1. Engaging current and future customers with your cards and payments services
  2. Practical navigation of new industry entrants to maintain your relevance
  3. Achieving industry foresight for early adoption of the latest innovations to the cards and payments industry

The above topics support banks in remaining competitive, becoming future-proof and capitalising on the profitable retail arm of the payments industry to ultimately enhance your margins.

Delegates attending the day time Summit benefited from panels of industry experts, case-study driven sessions, debates and interactive roundtable discussions about these key themes from the most senior and experiences institutions in the sector.

Once the Summit was complete the evening celebrated the most impressive and successful initiatives from payments providers over the previous 12 months. Awards were given for wide-ranging achievements and highlighted leaders in the industry and efforts to progress cards and payments.

The Awards were presented during a Gala Dinner following a welcome Drinks Reception at the impressive Fullerton Hotel in Singapore. The Awards welcomed Institutions from all over the world and were hosted by Senior Editors from Cards International and Electronic Payments International.
