Message from the chairman

It is with great pleasure to welcome you to the ePAY SUMMiT 2018 to be held in Bahrain which is known to be a very charming and business friendly country. ​​

In fact, on 5th September 2017, Bahrain has been voted the number 1 ranked country in the world to live and work in by the Expat Insider Survey; a network of 2.8 million expats based in Munich.  
ePAY  is designed to become an important international conference dedicated to Electronic Payment and Internet Banking, technology and applications.

Over the past two years, Bahrain has worked very seriously to introduce the right mix of policies and regulations for the Fintech and Retail Banking sectors as a part of the kingdom’s efforts to encourage growth in the Fintech industry and strengthening its position as a hub for the financial and banking industry in the region.

The summit will present practical cases and share in-depth experiences on a range of topics, including: Innovation, Usability and Customer Adoption, Cyber-security, E-Payments Infrastructure & Regulation, Technological disruption and Innovation in the payment landscape.
