About the Conference

Roger Alexander (chair at MPE) said it right: ’Anywhere, anyplace, anytime’.

This strapline from old advertisement seems to be most appropriate for shopping in 2016 and serves also as a key takeway from this year’s MPE Conference! High profile speakers didn’t let us down and we were treated to some excellent, thought provoking presentations and panel sessions thorough 3 days of the conference. We continue to see more innovation in payments world everyday and we’re curious to find out what the next step will be.

We shall find out in 2017 at the 10th Anniversary MPE conference in Berlin.
