Opatija welcomed the 19th Smart Card event held from 24th to 26th September. The topics on the conference were mostly related to the theme of the ongoing digitalization and transformation of the payment environment as well as the new compliance regulations.
This is the biggest regional event related to cards and payments industry and this year, the agenda was divided into three theme days – State & Future Development, Mobile Payments and Digital Banking, and Experiences.
Mercury Processing Services International was the Silver Sponsor of the event. On Tuesday, Andreja Josipović, our Senior Product Expert, demonstrated one of our biggest achievements this year – how we became the 1st certified VISA Processor Aggregator in Europe and its implementation in launching Google Pay. She also spoke about the project’s challenges and its final realization.
In a constantly evolving payment environment, we are proud to be first in such a significant area since Croatia became the first country in the region to have Google Pay service available.
In addition, there were 11 more employees on the conference who came on behalf of our company as experts in their respective fields and a booth where we showcased some of our many innovative payment solutions.
