On 21-22 September 2017, APSCA will organise the 8th Asian Payment Card Forum in Mumbai. The forum is Asia’s largest gathering of card issuers and acquirers, domestic bank card networks, international payment systems, mobile payment companies and e-payment services providers that meet to explore best practices for driving the consumer payments landscape towards a digital payments future.

The 8th Forum will be hosted by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) at the Lalit Hotel in Mumbai and will provide a unique learning, discussion and networking opportunity for experts in consumer payments and retail banking in Asia.


Largest Market Opportunity for Digital Payments

The Forum will highlight how India is setting trends in payments that have global relevance.
