Following the success of our UK Payments Leaders' Summits, we are delighted to announce the expansion of the series! The Payments Leaders' Summit will gather selected senior payment leaders, decision-makers and budget holders from across Europe for this exclusive and invite-only event.

This is an unmissable opportunity for leaders that oversee payments and fraud strategy, PSP partnerships, payments schemes and methods, developing payments architecture and infrastructure.

The event will give you the opportunity to network with senior peers in a relaxed, private environment, hear and learn from the most influential members of the payments community, and provide a platform to engage in pre-qualified meetings with leading solution providers.
