The progress of digital payments within Poland and its transformation of the country’s financial progress will be the focus of a conference being organised in Warsaw later this month by Italy’s SIA.
The technology infrastructures and services group announced that the ‘Accelerating the Payment Transformation’ conference will be held on Tuesday September 29 at Warsaw’s Hilton Hotel (Grzybowska 63). The event aims to explore the future of the payments industry in Poland.
The meeting will also provide an overview of the digital transformation in Europe, said SIA, where digital customers ask for simpler, faster and more innovative solutions, new comers are looking at payment services as a strategic asset for their business and the European regulations are pushing towards a more competitive and efficient system.
Speakers confirmed for the conference include SIA’s chief executive, Massimo Arrighetti, who will give the opening address, Innopay’s CEO, Douwe Lycklama and Peter Jones, managing director of PSE Consulting.
SIA said that Marek Lekki, managing director of ARC Rynek/Opinia will also present the results of syndicated research on Polish consumers and modern banking services. The session will explore how Poles are increasingly using non-cash payments and cards and also review the take-up of mobile applications for payments and consumers’ willingness to opt for financial products offered by market participants other than the banks.
