Be part of a premier payments conference right here in NZ

The Point is the premier payments conference in New Zealand. It’s where representatives from across the payments industry come together every two years to find out the latest trends and developments, discuss hot topics and opportunities, form important business connections, and consolidate ideas. 

To get a feel for what our conferences are like, check out our 2016 photo gallery.

The Point 2018 is set to be another high calibre event you won't want to miss. You'll be able to connect with local and international experts, strengthen business relationships, share in and contribute to important industry discussion, and learn valuable market intelligence from industry thought leaders. For even more reasons to register, see our why attend page.

At The Point 2018 you'll enjoy a comprehensive and insightful two-day programme with top speakers.

Theme: Shaping a connected future that counts

We are beyond the digital age. Cars are driving themselves, we carry artificial intelligence in our pockets and businesses can predict our needs. We are more connected than ever before and the way we transact is changing shape before our eyes. The future is set to connect us even more, but what connections will count in payments?

Find out at The Point 2018 where we’ll be discussing and debating this across a wide range of hot topics including global innovations in payments, immediate payments, open data and APIs, digital ID, and more.

Check out the two-day programme and speakers. We'll be announcing more details about the programme and revealing more speakers soon. 

We also have the below brochure with all the key information you can download and share.
