The Innovative Payments Association (IPA) and The Money Services Business Association (MSBA) are working together to drive the industry forward by expanding the reach of the Innovative Payments Conference (IPC), which will be held May 5-7 in Washington, D.C.
“The rapid evolution of the payments industry, driven by technological advancements and evolving consumer demands, calls for a collaborative approach to shaping the future of payments,” said IPA President and CEO Brian Tate. “By teaming up with the MSBA, we will broaden our perspective and engage in discussions that will cultivate a greater understanding of the inner workings of the entire payments value chain.”
Since 2013, the IPA has hosted the IPC to unite industry leaders, explore innovations, and address compliance, legislative, and regulatory issues. In 2024, the MSBA will help form a combined agenda addressing the interests of both IPA and MSBA members as well as other Industry companies.
“We are excited to collaborate with our good friends at the IPA on the Innovative Payments Conference, a valuable resource for educating and empowering payments professionals,” said Kathy Tomasofsky, Executive Director of the MSBA. “This partnership will offer the opportunity for our members, along with IPA members, to engage in thought-provoking discussions and network with leaders from all corners of the payments industry.”
The conference will focus on providing information for navigating the ever-evolving regulatory landscape, which requires a collective response at both the state and federal levels. As such, key topics to be addressed at the IPC include:
- The role of AI in payments innovation and deployment
- Payment’s fraud prevention strategies;
- Emerging payment and money transmission technologies and their global reach;
- Regulatory trends on the State level; and
- Payment issues, including: EWA, Open Banking Reg. E.
Government officials and regulators from the Consumer Financial Protection Agency, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Reserve have also been invited to participate in the conference.
