Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization Announces Fourth Annual Prepaid Symposium

The Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization (CPPO), the voice of the rapidly growing prepaid payments industry in Canada, announced it will host the fourth annual CPPO Prepaid Symposium on April 23, 2020 at the Toronto Region Board of Trade in Ontario. Attended by leaders in fintech, banking, payments and government, the annual CPPO Symposium is the premier event for networking and learning about the $4.3 billion Canadian prepaid technology industry. Registration is available online via cppo.ca/prepaid-symposium/ and early bird rates last until February 29.

Under the theme, Leading the transformation to digital banking, this year’s Symposium will focus on the evolution of prepaid as a foundation for innovation, enabling fintechs and challenger banks to bring new and innovative solutions to market. A wide range of the industry’s thought leaders with global vantage points will present actionable insights, case studies, and trends around payment technology for consumer and business applications.

The Symposium will kick off with a keynote address from Jason Gardner, founder and CEO of Marqeta, the first global modern card issuing platform. Gardner will take a deep dive into how new technology has redefined the modern payment experience, drawing on industry defining applications of the Marqeta platform that have pushed the boundaries of what a card can do, as well as talking about how the global digitization of payments is disrupting industries of all stripes. The keynote will be followed by several content-rich panel discussions, presentations, and fireside chats from more than 15 industry leaders.
