MPE 2021 will be Virtual

New restrictions on gatherings and travel in light of rising Covid-19 across the Europe, means that MPE 2021 will be a fully virtual four days event.

MPE team organised in 2020 its first virtual conference MPE SUMMER WEEK in September 2020 with 1800 registered Merchant payments professionals. It was the FIRST SMALL STEP in creating the events of FUTURE for Merchant Payments Professionals connecting us virtually in pandemic times.

MPE 2020 (in-person conference in Berlin Feb 17-21) and MPE Summer WEEK (online conference, September 7-11) were our biggest and best conferences yet, and we couldn’t have done it without you! The events may be over, but the fun (and inspiration) doesn’t stop.
