I will be hosting two round table sessions on “Payment Challenges in a Post-Covid World”.

The Covid19 crisis had a huge impact on the payment landscape. We have seen interesting developments such as:

  • A large growth of e-commerce transactions.
  • An increased use of contactless payments.
  • A Surge in marketplaces and the increased importance of the platform strategy.
  • The payment experience is more critical than ever.
  • The increased use of cryptocurrencies, stablecoins and Central bank digital currencies (CBDC).
  • The increasing Demand for Mobile Point of Sale.
  • Online payments increasing in importance, replacing partially card-based payments;


During the round table, we will make a deep dive on the following 3 topics:

  • Instant Payments – the new “normal” ?
  • Request to Pay: the bridge between customer convenience and reconciliation?
  • Digital currencies for a digital future ?

I will not tell more about this, but hope to meet you there.
