Each year, The BayPay Forum organizes events in Europe to bridge the gap between the two continents and to give the opportunity to learn and reflect on the latest trends emerging in the US and in Europe.

For 2016, The BayPay Forum will present the latest trends from Silicon Valley and the rest of the US and have someone to present the latest trends in Europe.

These presentations will be followed by a panel discussion on Innovations we see as having a global impact on how commerce will be conducted in the future.

For this interactive session, we are selecting a group of senior executives from different parts of the payment ecosystem to debate with the audience on the benefits of these latest trends.

This session will be Live Streamed so executives from all our chapters in New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Toronto, Paris, Luxembourg and of course our 3 Bay Area Chapters (San Francisco, Silicon Valley, East Bay) will be able to attend remotely on their mobile devices.

Feel free to inform your friends and colleagues who may be interested in the discussion.
