Working Faster and Smarter - It's a Kiwi Payments Evolution

Join Payments NZ this November at our biennial conference Get to The Point - It's what customers expect.

Our payments industry is challenged by the rate of change and influence seen through advancements in technology and the rise of globalisation. We are challenged by our customers, who may not always know what they need but are clear on what they expect. They expect payments to be increasingly fast, continuously safe and always easy.

This year’s conference is about rising to that challenge. It's about working faster, better and smarter in our constant state of technological change and ever-rising customer expectations. We think it is a great opportunity for a direct approach to sharing insightful information and knowledge relevant to our payments industry.

Get to The Point will bring together over 300 influential delegates from the payments community. Local and international speakers will talk about key developments in payments and share motivating insights of what it all means for the payments industry and our customers. Throughout the two day conference we will share best practices, knowledge and industry innovations with ample opportunity for in-depth discussions.

The Point is that together we will drive high impact industry results with this upbeat approach.
