The payment service provider and international card acquirer’s regional office in Singapore is eagerly awaiting the launch of a new, local Money 20/20 event, Money 20/20 Asia, which will be held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, between 13-15 March, 2018.
The focus of Money 20/20 is payments. Taking a unique – and widening – perspective, the conferences under the Money 20/20 umbrella bring together industry professionals from across the payments ecosystem to connect, create, and innovate. The inaugural Money 20/20 Asia, launching on 13-15 March, welcomes “visionaries and innovators from across the spectrum who are inventing new ways to spend, manage, save, borrow, share, and protect money.”
Forward-thinking companies have long recognised the immense potential for growth contained within the APAC region. When ECOMMPAY was founded in 2012, representation in the APAC region featured as a high priority on the payment service provider’s development roadmap. This goal was attained in 2015 with the opening of a regional office in Singapore.
Three years on, the ECOMMPAY team in Singapore has grown significantly. Comprised of payment professionals with experience across various target verticals, technology developers, and specialists in alternative payment methods, the office has established valuable industry partnerships. Alexander Pestana, Regional Head of Business Development, joined ECOMMPAY in May 2017 to advance the payment service provider’s interests throughout the APAC region.
“ECOMMPAY’s overarching vision is to provide flexible, tailored payment solutions for merchants working within the e-Commerce industry globally. Our capabilities enable us to offer an omnichannel payment process, combining acquiring capabilities, 100+ payment methods, mass payouts, and technological innovation within a single, seamless integration.”
“By attending Money 20/20,” Alexander explains, “we expect to raise our brand profile, networking with representatives of the financial sector from across the regional ecosystem.”
Money 20/20 Asia promises to bring together thought leaders and decision makers “from the mighty markets of China and India, global financial hubs of Hong Kong and Singapore, innovation centres of Japan, South Korea, and Australia, and emergent fintech markets, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, the Philippines, and more.”
The pan-Asian conference features 15 themes that capture industry sentiment, ranging from Processing, Instant Payments & Open Platforms to X-Border Disruption, is particularly relevant for ECOMMPAY, whose technological capabilities enable the customisation of payment products, services, and solutions to ensure tangible benefits and whose partnerships with banking institutions and alternative payment systems enable merchants from across the globe to expand into the APAC markets.
