ORGANIZERS

Two non-cash payments congresses organised so far with joint efforts on the part of Foundation for Development of Cashless Payments (FROB) and University of Warsaw Faculty of Management (WZ UW) turned out a major success both in terms of delivered content and the logistical aspects. Currently, the Congress is believed to be a staple on a list of Polish non-cash payment events.

The feedback gathered from previous Congress participants confirmed the event’s function as a platform for to-the-point and inspiring discussions on the current situation of the non-cash transaction market as well as its new trends and innovative solutions.

To meet a growing demand, in 2014 FROB has organised both a series of specialised discussion forums: a debate held at the Business Centre Club (in March) and the Non-Cash Payments Forum (in June) and media meetings that had strong attendance from entities all across the financial industry.

We hope this Congress will uphold the tradition of a leading Polish forum uniting the academia, business and public administration in a discussion of the present and future of non-cash payments.

This year’s Congress will touch on the most significant current issues both in the form of presentations and as panel sessions with experts from Poland and the EU. We hope to have open and brave debates with the participation of all Congress attendees.
