A Meeting of the Payments Industry Representing All Stakeholders to Address Issues and Work Towards a Collaborative Implementation of EMV, Mobile and Contactless Payments, Card Not Present, and other New Payments Technologies in the U.S. 

Next Meeting

The U.S. Payments Forum March 2018 in-person meeting will be a three-day All Member Meeting held Mar 26-29, 2018 in ChampionsGate, FL at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. 

For the first time, this meeting is being held in conjunction with the Secure Technology Alliance 2018 Payments Summit and co-located with the International Card Manufacturing Association ICMA Expo. The Payment Summit is the premier payments industry conference and is co-located with the ICMA Expo, the premier card manufacturing and personalization expo. USPF members will have access to 3 days of conference sessions featuring over 120 speakers, open exhibition hall, networking receptions, and meal functions in addition to scheduled USPF-only working committee meetings.
This meeting is expected to draw attendees from all of the global payment brands and other stakeholders representing financial institutions, merchants, processors, acquirers, regional debit networks, mobile services providers, device manufacturers and industry associations who have joined the U.S. Payments Forum. The meeting includes stakeholder updates on the status of EMV migration, panels and roundtables on non-EMV topics and other new payments technologies, education sessions on both EMV and new payments technologies, and special interest groups focused on merchants, issuers, and mobile to discuss current trends and challenges.  The meeting will also foster the progress being made by the working committees formed to address issues that require broad cooperation and communication among different stakeholders. Multiple breakout rooms will be used to support working sessions for attendees to explore in more detail the key challenges that the payments industry faces in moving to EMV and to discuss the implementation of other new and emerging payments technologies. 

The full 3 day conference is open to all attendees, however the USPF working committee sessions are open to U.S. Payments Forum members only.  USPF Members are welcome to attend the USPF working committee sessions or and the combined Payments Summit and ICMA Expo conference sessions.
