The latest innovations, thinking and experience in the fast changing payments industry will be revealed at PayExpo, Europe’s leading multi-channel payment event which is taking place at ExCel, London on 11 &12 June.

It will be packed full with ideas valuable to government teams aiming to make payments systems faster, easier and more secure.

As a special offer, national and local government directors, managers and executives can register for a complimentary ticket at

Many public sector agencies have taken up electronic payments as technology is constantly evolving and security and regulation have both developed. Parking is a perfect example – it is now often paid by mobile phone. The PayExpo conference and exhibition will highlight and explain all the exciting developments in this rapidly changing market. Visitors will meet programme managers, see product demonstrations, network with financial institutions and card associations and attend dedicated seminar sessions.

The exhibition is split into four main categories; ‘Future of Payments’, ‘Merchant Payments’, ‘Mobile Money’ and ‘Prepaid 2014’. Delegates can wander freely between the four and take advantage of the fantastic opportunities in each.

There are several sessions that will be of particular interest to those visitors who work in the public sector. Some of these include Chris Skinner, chairman of the Financial Services Club discussing ‘2024 and the broader vision, forecasts for trends across a 10 year duration’; and Melissa Whitehead, Commissioner, Transport for Cape Town, will present a talk entitled ‘Following the successful introduction of new payment technology to consumers: with a view from the transport sector’.

Interesting panel sessions include ‘Mapping the international payment ecosystem: what is needed for a faster, securer and more desirable transaction process?’ moderated by Duncan McEwen, Senior Policy Adviser of the UK Cards Association and ‘Understanding the implication of recent payment regulations’, moderated by Patricia Easterbrook, Retail Policy Director at the British Bankers’ Association.

Following its highly successful launch in 2012, every year the PayExpo team ask the Payment Global Advisory Board to nominate their top five individuals in order of who they believe has made significant contributions to the payments industry. The list is then voted on by industry leaders to create the ‘Payments Power 10’. This year’s list will be announced at the event.

The Payments Dragons’ Den is also back for the third consecutive year. It is a platform upon which start-ups can showcase their work or launch their new ideas and projects to a qualified audience of senior buyers.

Michael Seaman, event director at PayExpo 2014, comments: “As the largest event of its kind in the UK, PayExpo offers a comprehensive insight into the industry covering the latest trends and examples of best practice. Now in its second year, the show has become a firm fixture in the industry diary with many major names set to share the secrets of their success. With four conference strands to attend plus additional features to explore, delegates can enjoy a packed, productive experience.”

PayExpo 2014 takes place at ExCel, London on 11 & 12 June. A full two Day Conference Pass is £999. However any official from a Government Authority can register for a complimentary ticket here.
