CPI global summit


What’s on the horizon in international payments? This question, among others, was discussed at a gathering of the “Who’s Who” in card and payment professionals earlier this month at Commercial Payments International’s Seventh Annual Global Summit in New York City.

Representatives from across the world and speakers from across the value chain joined together to discuss the technologies, trends, and strategies in payments, including the following:

  • How does Blockchain work and why is it important?
  • What are the trends in payment technology, what does the future hold and what does it mean for commercial payments?
  • What do B2B acquirers really need? What are the real barriers they face?
  • Is interchange truly in the best interest to ALL parties? What are the pros and cons for the current model and how might it be changed?

In addition, discussions stemming from 2014’s Industry Issues Poll, including rebates, disruption, and interchange continued to split the crowd.

Payments Panel: Payments Across Established and Emerging Markets

WEX’s very own Renata Caine, Vice President, Virtual Payments, WEX, joined 170+ senior payments executives as a speaker at a panel discussion on global payments and emerging markets.

The panel walked attendees through commercial payments across many geographies, discussing how mature markets, such as North America, are influencing card growth in emerging markets.

This guided discussion incorporated questions from other attendees on the impact of payments data from transactions, how data is empowering buyers, and how empowered buyers will lead the continued growth in emerging markets across the world.
