EuropeanPaymentSummit 2018: A special dual program !

Offering a Dual Program on “Transactions” and “Security & Fraud”

EuropeanPaymentSummit (EPS) offers a unique 2 day program featuring key developments ‘for-by professionals’ in the payments/transaction space combined with a full 2 day program with key sessions on international Security & Fraud. These two program sections will be programmed in parallel to enable delegates to switch and select key sessions to attend.

Next to plenary introductions, delegates can create a full meaningful 2 day program in order to gain best insights on developments, debate on key issues and learn from best practices. Of course there will be ample time for meeting your international peers and thus networking.

The Hague Security Special program development will be supported by Hague Security Delta (HSD). HSD is the largest security cluster in Europe. In this cluster institutions work together on innovations and knowledge in the field of cyber security, national and urban security, protection of critical infrastructure, and forensics. HSD has partnerships and create knowledge bridges with the main global security clusters in the USA, Canada, Singapore and South Africa, next to having strong ties to the main European security regions and Brussels. They share a common goal: creating a secure world and transaction space.

Next to the many session, we do have many 30 minutes breaks so you can spend time at our lounge and visit key cases and presentations of professional suppliers and new start-ups (FinTech), selected to add value the program.
