Retail payments and compliance experts to unite at PayExpo 2019

In partnership with InternetRetailing Conference, PayExpo agenda announced with top-level speakers exploring developments in retail payments and compliance

The UK’s leading payments conference, PayExpo, is back once again, bringing the world’s leading fintech, banking, retail and gaming experts together for the seventh year running.

Taking place on 8-9 October at the Business Design Centre, London, this year will see more than 2,000 strategists, disruptors, innovators and implementers gather to connect and discuss the future of business, regulations and the technologies shaping each spotlighted sector.

Following the successful launch last year, PayExpo will once again be running its gaming payments conference stream in partnership with ICE London, the leading gaming industry event. This stream brings together payments and fraud experts from leading gaming operators as well as specialist solution providers to share their insights. PayExpo is also partnering with the InternetRetailing Conference (IRC) this year to reach a wider audience of retailers and ecommerce professionals. IRC takes place in the same venue on day after PayExpo.

This year’s agenda features over 40 hours of content delivered by over 100 decision makers from leading brands and regulators including Mastercard, Revolut, Monzo, HSBC, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), British Retail Consortium (BRC), The Spectator, Ocado and Decathlon.

Andrew Cregan, Policy Advisor, Head of Payments, BRC – and the retail stage’s first speaker – commented, “I’ll be taking to the stage to discuss some of the key innovations that we’ve seen in the retail payments space recently, and how we can better combine these sectors to deliver what customers want in a way that benefits everyone.

“Progress in the retail payment space affects everyone, and it is exciting to have a chance to talk about future innovations at PayExpo.”

From TED-style talks and heated panel discussions to announcing this year’s most influential payments experts in the Payments Power 10 and newcomers competing to impress our judges in the Payments Dragons’ Den, PayExpo offers guests a wide range of engaging activities during the two-day conference.

This year PayExpo is working with the DIT to support the development of early-stage UK payments and fintech startups. Eligible startups can attend for free and apply to showcase their solutions in the new Startup Hub and pitch in the Payments Dragons’ Den.

PayExpo is also expanding its content with new spotlights on international markets including sessions exploring opportunities in the Middle East, Hong Kong, Australia, Mexico, Arizona and Lithuania.

Along with a full agenda, the exhibition floor will host an array of the latest payments innovations for our audience to explore – bringing together the minds that shape the future of payments with the ones implementing it.

PayExpo’s Event Manager, Andrew Earle, said, “PayExpo is all about supporting payment innovation and providing a platform for leaders, newcomers and everyone in between to engage with the wider industry and address our greatest challenges and opportunities. We’re really looking forward to what should be a fascinating and insightful few days this October.”

Growing in demand, last year the conference welcomed 19% more retailers than the previous year – with further growth expected in 2019.
