About the EPA

The Emerging Payments Association (EPA) is a thriving community of payments professionals whose goals are to strengthen and expand the payments industry to benefit all stakeholders.
Since 2004 we have been instrumental in helping to connect the ecosystem, encourage innovation and profitable business growth.
We achieve this by shaping a comprehensive programme of activities for over 100 member companies with help from our independent board, which addresses key issues impacting the industry.
These include targeted events, conferences, award ceremonies, critical industry projects and lobbying activities.

Traditional marketing doesn't work in this industry. The payments industry is a community which is based on relationships. EPA introduces you to people, points you in the right direction and makes quality, relevant introductions.

The data on Gift Card growth trends is absolutely spot on - thanks so much... this is really, really helpful.

EPA@Home events are a relaxed way to meet some new people over a drink. I usually get introduced to half a dozen by the EPA team every month.

Start ups withing the payments industry often find it difficult to find the right level of guidance, education and support to help them develop their businesses. It is therefore refreshing to find this time of business guidance at the Catalyst and MasterCard is keen to lend its support.

It was my first Analyst's briefing this morning and it was absolutely fantastic. Very insightful and the calibre of discussion was nothing short of what I would expect from an EPA event. Looking forward to the next one. Thank you.

By helping us develop relationships in the emerging payments community and providing access to decision makers, the EPA team has streamlined the decision making process. EPA is a community that people enjoy: it's work, outside of work.

Five years ago, no-one had heard of Ukash, or what we did. Now we're accepted in 36m outlets worldwide, I'm always having to turn down invitations to speak and we're a very successful business. And EPA has been instrumental in that growth.

Pay360 Innovate should be called Pay360 Invigorate. Great content: full to the brim with the very latest ideas, concepts and pilots, all handled in such an interactive way - outstanding.
