Past event

This event has now passed. Any photos from this event will be published on this page when they become available.

The gloves were off and they came out swinging! Thought-provoking and exhilarating, the Payments Punch Up fueled fierce debate around some of the most controversial topics in payments as internationally-recognised thought leaders took opposing sides live on stage at the 2015 PayExpo event in London’s excel.  

With our DG, Tony Craddock acting as referee we enjoyed five Payments Punch Ups across two days. Opponents contended their positions on mobile payments, the future of banks, cryptocurrencies, regulation and more.    

This year, we expect the Punch Up to be bigger and better and we need your help to achieve that!

What topics should we debate at this year’s event? What is the most controversial issue in payments right now?  Do you fancy getting the gloves on and taking part yourself? Or perhaps you would prefer to nominate someone? 

We have a few speaker slots still available (see blank spaces below), so if you'd like to be involved please contact Natasha.

The Payments - punch up will take place at PayExpo on 7th - 8th of June, use the following link to register.
