The U.S. Payments Forum, an integral part of the Secure Technology Alliance, today announces its upcoming Fall Member Meeting. The event gives payments decision-makers a unique opportunity to share their experiences, discuss emerging payments innovations and develop strategies for overcoming industry challenges through collaboration.
The meeting will take place on November 8th and 9th at the Hilton in downtown Nashville, just steps away from major landmarks like the Country Music Hall of Fame. Attendees will have access to interactive roundtable discussions, panels, and special interest groups. Many of these educational sessions will be open to Forum members and non-members. Registration details and the full agenda can be found on the U.S. Payments Forum’s website.
Seckin Yilgoren, Mastercard’s senior vice president of North American cyber and intelligence, will kick off the meeting with an impactful keynote address. He will explore methods for protecting the trust between payment stakeholders and consumers in a changing world.
“We’re excited to head to the Music City alongside some of the biggest names in global payments,” said Jason Bohrer, executive director of the U.S. Payments Forum and the Secure Technology Alliance. “The conversations that take place at the Forum’s meetings are invaluable to the greater payments industry. Both inside and outside of scheduled sessions, stakeholders have the chance to pinpoint areas of opportunity within the industry and influence innovation. Global payments networks, merchants, issuers, acquirers, and technology makers come together to build better payment experiences in a non-competitive setting.”
Non-member organizations who wish to register for the event’s open sessions can do so at a cost of $195 per person. Member organizations are allowed a maximum number of participants to attend the full range of sessions at no charge based on their level of membership. Additional member registrations are available at $545 per person.
The meeting is made possible through the following sponsors: American Express, Discover, and Infineon Technologies.
