The 11th annual Airline & Travel Payments Summit (ATPS), co-hosted with UATP at The Palace Hotel in Berlin, Germany,, poses the question "Are you bold enough?" when it comes to your payments and fraud strategy. Are there lessons to learn? Is the status quo no longer good enough? Do we need to listen better to customers and deliver for them in new ways? The "how" in being bold enough with your payments and fraud prevention strategies will be at the heart of the 11th ATPS agenda.

This event will offer two conference tracks in a single venue: 1) Payments Track, and 2) Fraud Prevention Track. Scroll down this webpage to see the complete ATPS agenda and hot topics that will be covered.
