Prepaid Summit: Europe 2015

Principe di Savoia, Milan, Italy | 10 November 2015

Prepaid Summit: Europe 2015 will examine:

  • The Global Prepaid Landscape – What Is Driving The Transformation?
  • Focus On The Italian Prepaid Market – Opportunities & Insights
  • Using Payment Innovation As A Business Strategy And Monitising New Technologies
  • Emerging Mobile Payments – Identifying Game Changers In Prepaid
  • Prepaid In The Retail Channel – Merchant & Customer Overviews
  • Prospects in terms of the volume of cards in issue and transaction value
  • Moving beyond the traditional prepaid card: travel, mobile, payroll, expenses

Italy is one of largest prepaid market in Europe and the sector is still growing despite the rise of the digital channel. A low internet and smartphone penetration rate has meant the country is behind its European counterparts in terms of digital payments but a young population suggests this is due for rapid growth in the near future.

The global economic crisis and conservative consumer spending behavior are expected to provide opportunities for the growth of prepaid cards over the forecast period (2014-2018). Prepaid cards are expected to be the most popular as they allow customers to eliminate wasteful spending and pre-define their spending limits. An inclination towards controlling expenditure and educating the public with regards to the benefits of prepaid card has encouraged their use. Italian legislation is pushing the adoption of prepaid cards by making e-payments mandatory for amounts above EUR1,000.

Italy is seen by many as a case study of what can be achieved by prepaid cards and testing ground for innovative new products. Unlike other countries, where prepaid cards users represent a small percentage, in Italy they are truly mass-market payment tools driving the payments ecosystem.

Prepaid Summit: Europe 2015 brings together thought leaders and innovators to discuss the issues reshaping the prepaid industry landscape. Join us in November to discover new and exclusive research, case studies from around the world and keynote presentations from some of the industry's leading figures.

Please note: The conference will be delivered in English and Italian. Simultaneous translation will be provided on site.

The Annual Prepaid Europe Awards

NOMINATION GUIDELINES

  • Deadline for awards nomination is 5pm GMT on 25th September 2015
  • Submissions can be made on behalf of your own company or in recognition of a colleague or a partner firm
  • Nominees should follow the guidelines to ensure their submission has the best chance of winning
  • Send your completed nomination to PSEawards15@timetric.com


Be open about your achievements
Information on submissions labelled CONFIDENTIAL will only be shown to members of the judging panel so please be open about successes. At the same time, even where financial information is in the public domain, please include it to provide a full picture of performance.

Support your opinions with facts
When judges compare companies on various criteria, a company which can quote data on customer satisfaction will be given precedence over one which claims "market-leading service quality" without evidence.

Be concise
Bullet points and short paragraphs supported by a couple of charts or graphs are better than long-winded presentations. Full nominations should be kept to a maximum of 1,200 words.

What makes you unique?
In every category, we are looking for companies that stand out from the crowd. When you list the things you do well, don't forget to emphasise where you feel you are unique among your competitors, or where you do things differently from the rest of the industry.

Follow the guidelines
While you are invited to raise any point you feel strengthens your nomination, we recommend clearly and directly addressing each point listed in the category criteria – this allows judges to easily compare like with like, and will make sure there are no areas in which your nomination has nothing to say for itself.

Keep it current
Remember that in almost all categories, the award title contains the words "of the year". For maximum impact, please refer to developments made and performance achieved in the last 12 months. While a record of success won't hurt a nomination, it is the most recent activity that will win awards for nominees.

Categories and Judging Criteria
