TRANSACT Tech — Toronto was one for the books!

TRANSACT Tech — Toronto proved to be an incredibly insightful event, convening top influencers and thought leaders at the forefront of the payments industry. The comprehensive agenda covered the pivotal trends and forces reshaping this dynamic space.

The opening fireside chat, featuring the Bank of Canada's Managing Director of Supervision, provided an authoritative overview of the new regulatory framework for overseeing retail payments. This laid the groundwork for a panel of industry executives from PSP Services, Moneris, Paypal, and Blakes, to then analyze the real-world business impacts of Finance Canada's new retail payments regulations.

Consumer-driven innovations like open banking and real-time payments emerged as major themes. Discussions from players like JPMorgan, Trustly, TD Bank, Worldpay, Payments Canada, and Finance Canada, offered valuable perspectives on navigating these transformative banking and payments developments. Disruptive technologies and their applications also received the spotlight. Pioneers from Fiserv, RPY Innovations, and independent experts shared insightful use cases around leveraging AI to enhance payments processes and security.

Looking ahead, the event explored the future strategic roadmaps for digital payments from major networks like Mastercard and Visa. Attendees gained a first-hand look at their vision for what's next. Multiple panels featuring voices from across the ecosystem - fintechs like TouchBistro, and incumbents like Moneris, Fiserv, and Ingenico, highlighted best practices for driving growth, optimizing performance, and mitigating risks.

TRANSACT Tech — Toronto delivered on its promise as an insightful confab that gave attendees a comprehensive, forward-looking view of the trends, opportunities, and challenges transforming payments from the heavy-weights and disruptors in Canada.
