Contactless Cards and Payments - June 2012

“I found the Contactless Cards and Payments conference to be an invaluable experience. The conference put in context and gave me a broader perspective on the many challenges the players are facing in Contactless Payments business. It was very nice to be able to discuss with different people from different sectors and share the ideas.”

Ilgaz Kaya, Garanti Bank Turkey

“I recently attended the SMi Contactless Card and Payments Conference and was suitably impressed with both the content and the organisation of the event. The conference programme was well thought out and provided a fantastic platform for me to share and debate my views and ideas with a select group of industry professionals. Especially breaks between sessions were great opportunities for networking. I will definitely be staying in touch with a number of the delegates and look forward to be invited back to speak at an SMi event again in the near future!”

CEE Card Markets - March 2012

I attended the CEE Card Markets conference and workshop …..he agenda touched all the relevant topics of the payment industry and gave us the chance to share, discuss and to build our professional network. It was a good idea to give a 360° picture about the market, with merchants, banks, service providers, consultants and central banks. The facility was really nice and the event was professionally organized.
