Airlines & travel companies are paying Billions of Dollars each 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?  To address these questions and other payment-related costs for the travel industry, the 8th annual Airline & Travel Payments Summit (ATPS) was held in San Francisco on 3rd & 4th of December 2014, co-Hosted with UATP. It offered three conference tracks in a single conference: 1) Payments Track; 2) Fraud Track; & 3) Travel Agency & OTA Track. Scroll down to see the event agenda. The event PowerPoint Presentations will be available shortly.
