Payments Innovation 2015 - Past events

Video from Payments Innovation 2014


What happened

The 2014 conference, chaired by BBC Technology Correspondent, Rory Cellan-Jones, featured high-profile speakers and panellists from across the payments industry – from government, to business and end-user groups. It built on the success of last year's event looking at trends in innovation and, through collaboration, how it can enable competition in payments services and support development and delivery of the UK's Payments Roadmap strategy.
