“Never before has there been so much change happening in the payments space. That is why it is so important for retailers to understand what is happening and how it will impact them” says Mark McMurtrie, Payments Theatre Conference chairman “By attending the conference sessions you will be able to boost your knowledge levels and then be in a stronger position to make the right payment strategy and supplier selection decisions. The time out of the office attending RBTE should be thought of as an investment for the future.”

Matt Bradley, RBTE event director, added: “RBTE attracts a huge amount of visitors hungry for information and solutions on business critical issues around payments. Payments have always been a key focus area for RBTE and will continue to be so, with more challenges and opportunities in the market then even before.  No other UK event has more payments companies exhibiting their solutions under one roof and we address the importance of consumer payments to retailers and their customers.”

RBTE caters for all stakeholders within the payments ecosystem including international schemes, acquirers, PSPs, ISOs, software suppliers, mobile payments, terminal manufacturers, stored value, foreign currency, and cash management systems.
