The COVID-19 pandemic has broken our payment habits, thanks to the need to eliminate cash for hygiene reasons and the availability of contactless technology. Paying with a tap of a card, a mobile or a fitbit smartwatch has become the new norm. Contactless payment is here and every day new people are being taught how to use this new service.

The world of payments, open banking, and fintech has been changing rapidly with the rise of disruptive technology and innovation across the sector. Ireland has the ability to lead the way in this rapidly growing sector. Technology is currently being developed to make service and transit payments even more seamless across the board. Dealing with such developments; while at the same time controlling costs, adhering to regulatory requirements and defending payments business from new entrants remains an ongoing battle for industry leaders.

Seamless Payments & Banking 2020 is an inaugural summit, (which will be both virtual and live) born from our previous future banking and finance events. The full day conference will foster a unique delegate experience and provide dedicated content across all things payments; including FinTech, payment technology, mobile payments, smart retail, contactless, transit payments, RegTech, mobility as a service and more.

With consumers’ spending habits and attitudes towards their personal finances changing faster than ever, the organisations that stay at the forefront of industry developments have a clear advantage. Seamless Payments & Banking 2020 is the best place to share knowledge and rub shoulders with the disruptors and innovators driving change in payments, fintech and eCommerce.

Building on the success of our many years of leading technical, financial and business-focused conferences, the Business Post’s 2020 Seamless Payments & Banking Summit is designed to challenge, motivate and inspire all those concerned with transformation and innovation within the payments and financial services industries…
