Every April, the Electronic Transactions Association, known as the ETA, holds its annual conference. This is the Main Event for people working in the payments industry. You can see the agenda at the Transact16 conference website and register to attend. The show is typically held in Las Vegas every other year, and this year it returns to Mandalay Bay April 19-21. Last year it was in our backyard, San Francisco. It is the ultimate networking opportunity for anyone in what used to be called the credit card industry, but also has multiple seminars on current topics in “Payments,” as well as a very large trade show floor, which is challenging to cover in depth in the time available.Read More

As a payments industry leader for 31 years now (our birthday was last week!), we regularly attend industry conferences across the country. Here is a list of 2015 events that we are considering attending. We are proud to be members of these associations which allow us to be on the forefront of payments industry trends and how to best increase sales, reduce risk, save time, and money for merchants just like you. Here’s a sneak peek of where you can find us in 2015:
Staying current in the payments industry is a challenge. Blink and there's a new digital wallet or app on the market. New inventions, associations, regulations and software innovations are emerging at lightning speed. Move too fast, you might invest in the wrong technology, move too slowly, you could be stuck with yesterday’s equipment and obsolescence. What’s a payment provider (or business who works with one) to do? Here are a few suggestions that can keep you in the know rather than in the dark.
It’s my fifth day here in New Orleans. Day one – fly in. Day two – set up booth. Day three – look sharp for the evening reception. Day four – attend opening session, get inspired!, staff booth, meet a million new contacts, celebrate 30th anniversary, give away iPad, tweet, go to the Discover party, return to hotel, collapse. Day five – catch up on everything I didn’t do yesterday and then pack up. Wow! What a whirlwind. But I’m ready to start it all again tomorrow and here’s why.
It’s here, it’s happening and it’s moving fast! The Electronic Transaction Association (ETA) is holding its Annual Meeting and Expo in New Orleans this year and CrossCheck is here, right in the heart of it. Starting out with a great evening reception yesterday, the tradeshow continues today and tomorrow and the floor is buzzing with activity.
CrossCheck attendees are Dave Siembieda - President and Chief Executive Officer, Chris Schumacher - Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Tiffany Lucas - Senior Vice President of Product Development, Travis Powers - Vice President of Partner Acquisition, Shane Miller - Vice President of Information Services, Brandes Elitch - Director of Partner Acquisitions, Todd Little - National Sales Trainer and Andrew Donahey - Director of Marketing.
It looks like 2013 will be chock full of great events for payment industry professionals, ISOs and financial services providers. We've gathered up some dates and locations for these must-attend events and hope to see you there!
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we wanted to present 5 websites that we are thankful for. These sites are valuable to the payments industry for the information and services they provide. In the ever-changing payment services industry, keeping up with the changes can be challenging.
