The BAFT Global Payments Symposium is back in New York this July – bigger and better than ever before. This is the payments conference by bankers for bankers and other payments professionals. The industry has spent the last few years discussing ideas and trends such as distributed ledger, AI, and real time payments. We are now at a point where these innovations are all becoming a reality. This year, we’ll bring these discussions to a more practical level. It’s time to get real. It’s time for innovation to commercialization.

With 150+ attendees, the conference is just the right size to have a substantive conversations with respected industry experts, counterparts, and providers without getting lost in the crowd.
