SACC Sydney 10 October – A Cashless Society

October 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

No Cash Please! Takeaways from a Cashless Society a Summary of EPA Asia’s Study Tour to Sweden

SACC members and guests are welcome to attend a special EPA @Home event on Thursday 10 October, where we will share our Key Findings from the Emerging Payments Association Asia’s Study Tour to Sweden – A Cashless Society.

Lance Blockley (MD The Initiatives Group) who led the study tour will present the key findings and make them come alive, applied to an Australian setting, during his moderation of two-panel sessions where some of the thought leaders in Swedish Payments Technology will participate.

This is what Anna-Lena Wretman, the CEO of Swish, said about EPA Asia Study tour:

“It’s me who should thank you. I think we had a very nice talk and I truly believe in sharing knowledge across the globe to find both similarities and differences. It’s that kind of relationship and cooperation that builds a better world!”
