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.

Blake McClellandBusiness Development Director, Carta Worldwide

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

Alistair GordonManaging Director, ValuAccess

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.

Scott AbrahamsGroup Head of Acceptance and Emerging Payments, MasterCard UK&I

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.

Salim DhananiBusiness Development Manager, Carta Worldwide

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.

David HunterCEO, Ukash

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.
