Event Information

Our 2014 annual user conference took place at One Great George Street in Westminster, Central London on Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th September.

There was a very healthy attendance, an exceptionally high quality and range of speakers and a full exhibition hall.

Some Delegate Feedback:

"Highly informative"
"Focussed audience, community spirit"
"Well-informed presentations across wide subject matter"
"Couldn't get to every presentation. I wanted to come with a team!"
"The organisation was great - everyone has been exceptionally friendly and helpful"

And a Press Review by global payments news intelligence analysts PaymentEye:

"This year's Payments Knowledge Forum created the ideal environment in which to foster engagement, network building and information-sharing for key members of the payments industry, who will be able to apply this shared knowledge to the future of payments."

We take on board the desire to have more user speakers and a wider range of delegates next year. We will be working hard to make this happen at our 2015 conference - Monday 5th & Tuesday 6th October at One Great George Street
