The Emerging Payments Association today announced that its annual PAY360 Conference will be held at the Business Design Centre in 2019. This flagship event is set to take place on 14th March 2019 and is now in a significantly larger venue than in previous years. This is the first step in the plan to double the size of the conference and is part of the association’s ambitious plans to develop and scale its events portfolio.
The Emerging Payments Association has also secured Mike Seaman as the new Event Director for PAY360. Mike has over 15 years’ experience of organising events all over the world and has specific experience in the payments industry.
When asked about his appointment Mike said:
I attended PAY360 this year and I was astounded by the attendance. Despite a freak blizzard in March, the community came out in force to support the EPA. It was incredibly busy and well received with 100% of delegates saying that they were likely or very likely to return. That level of delegate feedback is frankly unheard of in the events industry so when the EPA asked me to be part of the 2019 event I couldn’t say no!
The EPA also announced a host of new features for PAY360 which make it stand out from other events in the calendar. These include an innovative quiz shoot-out call Trivial Paysuit where delegates can test their payments knowledge to win £1,000. Other innovations include the use of PechaKucha speaking sessions and facilitated networking with speakers alongside simple smaller changes such as double sized badges for delegates.
Pre-registration is now open and for more information about the event please visit crime.epasites.com
