The 7th Annual Airline & Travel Payments Summit (ATPS), co-hosted with UATP from the 4th to the 6th of September 2018 in Phuket, Thailand is all about: "Getting Ahead in the Digital Age." At the very first ATPS in 2008, the coolest phones were not even smart. The world has moved on considerably and digital is really starting to impact payments and fraud, especially so in Asia. So, what do you need to do to catch up with and get ahead of customers' payment needs and with the fraudsters in a fast moving digital environment?

ATPS APAC offers you the chance to connect with the best content and the best contacts in the industry – both of which are designed to get you ahead in the digital age.
