This year’s Summit is a call to action and an assembly of key stakeholders who have worked over the last decade to innovate the payment flows that power $125 trillion of global payments volume. Expert panelists will share insights on what is needed to move B2B payments from inertia to ignition and uncover the source of friction in order to identify the actions needed to spark B2B payments potential. The technology is there, the value seems well understood, the innovators have created solutions that address key frictions. Yet, inertia remains the immovable object that impedes speed of progress. Attend this unique conference where leaders will change the future of payments and innovation will gain momentum.

What Lies Beneath:
The Invisible Engines of B2B Payments

Much of the B2B payments discussion is focused on what we we see, not what powers the new solutions and use cases. What must exist below the surface — infrastructure, business models, new tech — before we can create value on top at scale?

The B2B Payments Battleground:
David vs. Goliath

Enterprise players have the people and the budget. SMBs have the will but not the time. SMEs see it as a path to growth. If inertia is the biggest competitor to B2B payments adoption, who is most likely to cross that chasm first — the enterprise, SMBs or key verticals? Will David slay Goliath in the B2B payments world?
