Last year, ATMIA Europe embarked on an epic journey that will take the continent’s only truly international ATM & Payments event around the major capitals of Europe. Magnificent Madrid was our first port of call, where over 400 ATM and payments professionals enjoyed workshops and presentations which went to the heart of the crucial innovations that can see our industry make startling progress in the decade ahead.
The next stage of our journey takes us to Resplendent Rome, sitting astride its seven beautiful hills, the birthplace of arguably the most powerful Empire our planet has ever seen.
However, to paraphrase Marc Anthony, we come to Rome not to praise Caesar, but to highlight the innovations from Italy, from Europe as a whole, and, indeed, from around the globe; innovations that will redefine the future of ATMs, cash and payments in general.
WHY ATTEND? Our aim in Rome is to provide a Forum – and there can surely be no city where a Forum is more appropriate – for education, shared learning and networking. No one attending is expected to simply listen and applaud. There will be genuine opportunities for everyone to both ask questions and have their say. We recognise that ALL those attending are industry professionals, with something of real value to add to the proceedings. They will have the chance to do so, if they choose. Visit the Europe ATM & Payments Innovation Summit website to read more about the Workshops, main conference programme and exhibition.
Rome was founded in 700 BC, around the time that cash first appeared. Both the Roman Empire and cash changed the world forever. Both Rome and cash are still alive and well today, ready to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future. In the great traditions of Roman construction, the Europe ATM & Payments Innovation Summit will help build the road towards that future, a road that can be a smooth and profitable trail for our industry, in the next decade and beyond.
