16-18 November 2021
The Covid-19 Pandemic was a game changer for airline and travel payments. From touchless technology to crypto, how customers want to pay has been transformed. We just experienced the largest refund and chargeback tsunami faced by any industry ever. On top, fraudsters have had lots of time to hone their skills and change their tactics. So, we’re calling this event “It’s Payments, Stupid” from a famous line that U.S. President Bill Clinton’s advisors often used in jest with him. They told him, “It’s the Economy, Stupid.” Similarly, for the global Airline and Travel Industry to be sustainably profitable again, it’s all about payments, including fraud prevention. You can’ be profitable if you don’t get paid! Join the ATPS 2021 Virtual, co-hosted with UATP, to ensure your business keeps its hard-earned revenues by staying ahead of fast moving payment trends.
