2022 Payments Summit / U.S. Payments Forum Meeting Sponsorship and Exhibit Rate Sheet

Payments Summit Overview

The Payments Summit is the premier industry event covering all things payments, including FinTech, mobile wallets, NFC, contactless, EMV, chip technology, open transit systems, mobile identification, authentication, and more. Attend the 14th annual Payments Summit and get the latest on all of these exciting technologies and the many business opportunities they can unlock.

2022 will mark the fourth year that the Secure Technology Alliance and the U.S. Payments Forum are combining the Payments Summit with the U.S. Payments Forum All-Member Meeting, resulting in the most comprehensive gathering of card and payments professionals than ever before!

Attend the 14th annual Payments Summit and get the insights you need to lead your organization’s payment initiatives and unlock new business opportunities. One event registration will give you access to all of the 2022 Payments Summit conference sessions, networking receptions, and combined exhibition hall. U.S. Payments Forum members will have additional access to USPF-only sessions and working committee breakout meetings that are regularly held at each All-Members Meeting.

Attendees Overview

The Payments Summit attendees represent every section of the payments industry. Our membership and non-member attendees come from global payments networks, processors, issuing banks, merchant banks, suppliers, merchants, etc. In each of these categories, we have organizations of all sizes – such as very large merchants to small, single location stores. The same is true for financial institutions – some are global banks and others are regional, or credit unions focused on a vertical market. Attendees also represent companies that are technology or solutions providers that work with companies in the broad payments ecosystem. Titles range from C-suite executives, to operations management, to marketing, to product management and engineering. Alliance and Forum working committees have a cross-section of subject matter experts representing every aspect of payments challenges and best-practices.

The most recent Payments Summit (before Covid began impacting travel) was in 2019. Prior in-person Payments Summits had over 500 attendees. Our goal for 2022 is to once again host over 500 attendees through a hybrid meeting with both in-person and virtual sessions.
