Merchant payments ecosystem
The biggest European event on payment acceptance at POS:
online, in-store and mobile, this international forum complexly addresses card acquiring, eCommerce and mobile payment acceptance.
The only networking and discussion platform connecting merchants with acquirers, PSPs, ISO‘s, schemes, regulators, processors, gateways, solution providers, MNOs and 3rd party providers.
The unique selection of representatives and strategic topics shaping business models ensures coverage of future trends, innovative approaches during the conference and exhibition. Given the way the acquiring industry evolves, the talks often tap on interaction beyond payments, covering the entire experience at POS as perceived by both merchants and shoppers.
The MPE is the biggest and most respected payment acceptance community. Its growing member base recently counts over 430 senior executives and along with its online discussion groups of almost 5.000 carefully selected members create an excellent forum focused on discussion, knowledge exchange and outstanding b2b opportunities. The scope is truly international and both the event and the online groups are populated not just by European payment experts but are increasingly attracting more and more acquirers, ISO‘s and processors from US and Asia.
Our MPE‘s annual ‘Guiding Hand’ Awards honor the most remarkable industry achievements, providing and lot of prestige and recognition. The awards night is yet another great opportunity for the entire payment acceptance industry to chat and make plans…
MPE 2013 was BIGGER & BETTER
The MPE conference and platform has grown up and in 2013 we entered its 6th annual. For those of you who may not know, just to recap that it was built on the success of ECAF (European Card Acquiring Forum), which originated in 2008. As the original focus of the conference shifted from pure acquiring also to eCommerce and Mobile Payments Acceptance, we decided to transform the event in 2010 to "Merchant Payments Ecosystem".
When we started working on the MPE 2013 we promised to make it bigger & better and at the same time we kept in mind your feedback from last year to sustain the quality of the meeting.
Our internal in-depth industry research along with the oversight of our Advisory Board concluded in the final content and shape of the MPE 2013 agenda. With your help we have identified new trends and challenges for the merchant payments in 2013.

Understanding the need to share the knowledge and further educate our community, we prepared and distributed a series of pre-conference briefing materials exploring new topics, particularly “Rich Merchant Services“ and „Interaction Beyond Payments”, which were a part of the MPE 2013 program.
