Attend the premier payments event of the year

The Payments Summit is the premier industry event covering all things payments, including FinTech, EMV chip technology, mobile wallets, NFC, contactless, open transit systems and more. Attend the 10th annual Summit and get the latest on all of these exciting technologies and the many business opportunities they can unlock.

2017 will mark the second time that the Smart Card Alliance and the International Card Manufacturing Association (ICMA) are co-locating events, giving attendees a broader perspective from the core  manufacturing and personalization of a card, to the rapid evolution in secure payments.

Watch this 3-minute video to see why industry executives view the Payments Summit as a “can’t-miss” event.

EMV and Mobile Lead the Next Wave of Payments Solutions

Innovative payments solutions are giving consumers more payment choices than ever, from secure EMV contact and contactless chip payments to new mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay and more. And mobile innovation goes beyond paying – mPOS has become the go-to technology for retailers looking to accept all of these new ways to pay. The Payments Summit is the only place to collaborate with colleagues on how to seize the opportunity to create a more secure, convenient and faster payments world with EMV, mobile and other innovative payments solutions.

Transit Payments Keep Getting Smarter

Nationwide, transit agencies big and small are using mobile technology and payments innovation to make mass transit and parking a lot more efficient and convenient. At the Payments Summit, get all of the newest developments in open, interoperable contactless card and mobile fare collection systems, mobile ticketing initiatives, and the steps federal and state regulators are taking to influence multimodal payments convergence to create a more seamless travel experience for all.

The New Breakout Industry: FinTech

Financial technology – also known as FinTech – has become the darling of the investment community, generating more than $12 billion in investments in 2014. By disrupting traditional banking relationships and processing models and introducing new payment delivery technologies, FinTech is reinventing financial services as we know it, and creating new opportunities for startups and established industry leaders alike. Learn all about FinTech at the Payments Summit – and see it in action in the exhibit hall.

**ICMA and SCA Attendees and Exhibitors:

Beware of solicitation from unauthorized hotels and housing agencies. Attendees and exhibitors may be subjected to inappropriate solicitation identifying themselves from hotels or third-party housing agencies not affiliated with ICMA.

Specifically, they will offer to make hotel reservations within the Associations room block on your behalf, and some will also mis-represent that they are calling from the Loews Royal Pacific Resort.

ICMA is not utilizing the services of any housing service for the 2016 EXPO.

Reservations for ICMA should be made directly with the hotel, either by phone or via our web reservation system. When calling the hotel, identify yourself as an attendee of the ICMA EXPO to receive the discounted rate. If you provide your credit card information to any of these unauthorized vendors, your card may be charged but you may not have a reservation when you arrive at the hotel.

If you have any questions about the ICMA EXPO hotel block, or general questions about the EXPO, please contact ICMA Headquarters at 1-609-799-4900 or email [email protected].
