GlobalPaymentSummit (GPS), the next step.
Payments is a truly international topic. Although there are a lot of differences in schemes, regulation and standards the direction of developments do align at some stage. By nature' the transaction space' needs eventually critical mass and standardization. Monitoring trends and (country)specific developments are key for new product and concept developments in payments. Crossing cultures, new technologies, new channels, leap-frogging communities do create new ideas and will push the evolution in payments forward.
GPS is a global strategic platform where selected developments and strategies are being shared amongst top professionals in payments. As payments are part of the context of the transaction, we cover a broader vision and deeper involvement in relevant new territories in what we call 'the transaction space'. This in itself will drive innovation in payments and behavior as well.
Sharing the global expertise and enabling new ideas to be introduced is our key mission with GPS. An annual moment of alignment and debate; a two days retreat to focus on next steps in payments.
As professionals we continuously work on a top program. We like to invite you to take part and join us and other professionals to exchange the expertise.
