Airlines & travel companies are paying Billions of Dollars every year to collect payments. With an increasing shift of bookings to the online channel, as well as to mobile, will these costs increase or decrease? Will these changes in payment channels increase fraud?  The 2014 8th annual Airline & Travel Payments Summit (Worldwide) will will be held in San Francisco on 3rd & 4th of December 2014, co-Hosted with UATP. It will offer 3 conference tracks in a single conference: 1) Payments Track; 2) Fraud Track; & 3) Travel Agency & OTA Track. Scroll down to see the event agenda.


Note: Reduced early-booking registration rates are now available from $699 USD (Airlines, OTA's & Travel/Hospitality Providers) and $1,299 USD (Industry Providers/Financial Services).
