Eagerly awaited virtual ceremony reveals 2021 winners

In quite a different event to the usual glitzy evening affair, The Card & Payments Awards took place last week. There was a sense of normality as we were joined by Alan Dedicoat (with a night off shushing duties) for the afternoon’s proceedings, with guests watching from their homes and offices. The ‘new norm’. There was plenty to celebrate with the announcement of the 21 winners.

You can view the full list of winners at Downloads - The Card and Payments Awards.

The event kicked off with an hour of networking, where guests were able to hold private group chats with those on their table, as well as host a video call with other guests in the room. Combined with meal (and wine) deliveries to individual households, we think this is a unique offering in this space. Initial feedback has been extremely positive in enabling client engagement in a difficult year.

We heard from the excellent Dame Stella Rimington about her time as DG at MI5, with some truly fascinating insight into the life of a secret agent.

Then we eagerly listened as our host, Justin Moorhouse, along with Alan, took us through the categories and revealed the winners. Huge congratulations to all finalists and winners this year. You really do represent the very best of our industry and your efforts over the last 18 months is admirable. None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of our judges. Please do take a look at their bios on our website. It is their expertise that makes the Awards so respected and admired.

We cannot be sure what the next few months will bring, but at this stage we can confirm that the Call for Entries will open in June. At this stage we are planning a return to the Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 3rd February 2022. Do keep an eye on our website for updates.

Also, thank you to American Express, Banking Circle, Contis, Discover Global Network, Ethoca, Fiserv, Ingenico, a Worldline brand, Mastercard, Reward and Visa.
