The Electronic Transactions Association announced last week the addition of the policy track to its list of educational workshops to be held during its upcoming TRANSACT 14 conference.
During the conference, which will be held from April 8-10 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, conference attendees can participate in discussions with officials from the Federal Reserve, FDIC, Secret Service, CFPB, New York Department of Financial Services and state policymakers.
“The electronic payments industry is at a crossroads of exponential growth and increased oversight, and government regulation has more of an impact on business than ever before,” ETA CEO Jason Oxman said. “TRANSACT 14 is the only place to hear directly from high level policymakers and law enforcement officials who directly impact the future of the payments industry.”
The track will include advanced education sessions, panel debates and face-to-face discussions with policymakers. Other tracks include Operation Chokepoint Boot Camp, a merchant track, an investment track, an international track, compliance and security track, sales track and mobile technology track.
TRANSACT 14, which will draw an estimated 1,000 firms from 24 countries, will showcase technical payments innovations, provide training to payments industry professionals.
