The Merchant Payments Ecosystem (MPE) conference took place at the InterContinental Hotel in Berlin, 17-19 February. Once again, the MPE drew hundreds of high-level executives from across Europe (and some from much further afield) to network, share the latest payments industry trends, and hear the thoughts of dozens of industry leaders.
Steve Warner, our own Senior Vice President of Sales & Account Management, delivered an insightful keynote speech to a packed conference hall on the first day. Speaking about the evolution of payment processing in Europe, Steve also focused on how the industry can prepare for the challenges that lie ahead. Also on the first day of the conference, I was privileged to be asked to join the CEO Roundtable, along with Ron Kalifa (Worldpay) and Niall Hodson (EVO Payments International).
This year’s show was particularly notable for PAY.ON however, as we officially launched our new Open Payment Platform. The shift to open payment technology across all of our modular payment gateway solutions reflects the continued evolution and growth of PAY.ON, and the response at the show was extremely positive. As Steve himself says in his on-screen debut for PAY.ON, “the future looks very bright”. You can watch the full video report below.
