Nick Pedersen, Managing Director of EQ Global has been confirmed to give the headline address and run an interactive workshop at the 2017 Travolution Summit, taking place at 30 Euston Square, Kings Cross, London, on Thursday 28th of September.
Pedersen, who was appointed Managing Director of the global payments provider in October last year following six years at Citigroup, will speak about how travel businesses can effectively utilise cross-border payments processes, including the main changes affecting cross-border payments processes under new Directive on Payment Services (PSD2) regulation and how to remain relevant to customers and markets.
The 2017 Travolution Summit will focus on the impact emerging technologies like A.I. and machine learning are having on the travel sector. The events strapline, ‘Smarter, Digital, Travel’ will also set out to bring delegates the latest in cutting edge thinking about what this actually means for their companies within the travel sector.
Pedersen will deliver his headline address, alongside Travolution’s editor, Lee Hayhurst, at 9am, with his interactive workshop taking place at 12.15pm, where he will also be joined by Dan Wilson, Vice President – eFX Solutions at Citigroup.
Nick Pedersen, Managing Director of EQ Global said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to share my views and insights on several occasions alongside some of the most influential individuals in the sector and at one of the top events in the travel industry’s calendar.
“Significant regulatory changes are on the horizon for UK based travel businesses and it is vital they understand the risks these altercations can have on them in terms of compromising revenue streams. That being said however, there are many opportunities that businesses can capitalise on, including the prospect of strengthening the efficiency of their own global payments process, whilst at the same time, maximising profits between customer receipt and supplier payment.”
