RBR announces 2017 conference schedule and terminates partnership with ATMIA RBR is today announcing it has terminated its conference partnership with ATMIA. The move, which comes into effect later this year, will give RBR greater freedom to tailor its events to the evolving needs of the ATM sector and consolidate its position as the industry’s leading provider of premium research, consulting and conference services.
RBR is repeating all four of its flagship conferences in 2017, providing continuity to banks, IADs and their suppliers. New names for three of the events reflect the increasing diversity of self-service banking channels and solutions and the growing threat of logical and cyber crime. Its conference lineup for next year is as follows:
- Self-Service Banking Asia 2017 (Manila, March) – formerly ‘Southeast Asia ATMs’
- Self-Service Banking Europe 2017 (London, May) – formerly ‘European ATMs’ ATM and Cyber Security 2017 (London, October) – formerly ‘ATM Security’
- Branch Transformation 2017 (London, November)
Commenting on RBR’s decision to end its partnership with ATMIA, RBR’s Managing Director Dominic Hirsch said, “RBR’s conferences have expanded dramatically over the past ten years. This change ensures they will continue to remain independent and relevant at a time of unprecedented upheaval in the retail banking sector”.
He went on to add, “I would like to thank ATMIA for its contribution to RBR’s events over the past decade. The association plays a valuable role lobbying for the interests of the cash and ATM industries, and we wish it every success for the future”.
