The Florin Awards

The Florin Awards were created in 2010 to stimulate innovation in the transaction services industry by providing the nominees and the winners with substantial benefits to assist with the promotion of their innovative products and solutions.

The 2019 awards dedicated special emphasis on the regulatory side of the industry, placing the spotlight on organisations and individuals who are exemplifying excellence in the field of compliance and regulatory technology. Protecting the consumer and keeping our payments ecosystem safe and compliant is of paramount importance and so we will recognise the companies, individuals and technologies that are forging ahead in this space.

Advances in the FinTech space were also recognised and technology solutions which deliver a better service to customers and thus create a richer user experience, making things simple and efficient and creating a new dimension of engagement, are always welcome. Do stay in touch and watch this space for our Florin Awards 2020.

The Florin Awards are a European Payment Summit initiative supported by The Paypers.
