International Conference of Regional Card Schemes & Retail Infrastructures
15-17 October 2019, Istanbul, Turkey


This annual invitation-only event brings together Senior Executives and experts in the field of card payments and Retail Financial Market Infrastructures from all five continents in a conference which is supported by the World Bank along with the European Card Payment Association, whose members include the major European domestic card schemes.

Following on from the success of the first four editions of the event which were held in Mumbai (2015), Milan (2016), Lisbon (2017)  and Madrid (2018), the 2019 event was hosted by BKM, the Interbank Card Centre in Turkey and Troy, the Turkish domestic card scheme.

The agenda was structured to continue sharing experiences and expertise between regional payment infrastructures, and to identify and address the major issues affecting today’s payments markets.
It was a unique opportunity for 115 participants from 45 different countries from all 5 continents to exchange views with peers in the payment industry, under Chatham House Rules in a non-commercial and open environment.
