“Remarkably, this is the 19th EBT Next Generation Conference and it continues to grow, proving the need for a venue where the public and private sectors can come together to collaborate and share information on the changing EBT marketplace. I am particularly interested in learning more about how not only new technologies might affect EBT, but the potential impact of the current legislative and regulatory environment as well,” said Kurt Helwig, president and CEO of the EFTA.
“Attendance at the conference continues to increase every year,” notes Peter Relich, Chairperson of the eGovernment Payment Council (eGPC), the industry council within EFTA that hosts the conference. “Attendees find real value in the conference, as it is the only industry conference that is focused solely on electronic government payments.”
