The Card & Payments Awards Announce New Date for 2021

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding events and mass gatherings, the organisers have taken the decision to postpone the date of the 2021 Awards Ceremony and Dinner, which will now take place on Thursday 29th April. The Awards will take place once more at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane.

The Card & Payments Awards is renowned as one of the leading networking events for the UK and Irish card and payments industry. Meeting up with industry friends, making new contacts and exchanging ideas is absolutely pivotal to the continued success of the Awards. The postponement gives everyone the very best chance of getting together in one room and celebrating the successes of their colleagues, partners and the wider industry, whilst gaining insight into the key initiatives, programmes and developments over the last 18 months, and how things are looking for the year ahead.

The Awards are currently open for entries, with a closing date of Monday 21st September 2020.

Categories are designed to reflect a range of disciplines and activities that are common across the UK and Irish card and payments markets. Categories cover technology initiatives, operational excellence, innovation, customer service, payment processing, financial inclusion, industry newcomers, community initiatives, security and anti-fraud, marketing, design and customer service and much more.

The independent judging panel includes a cross-section of representatives from across the UK and Irish payments industry, and is chaired by Roger Alexander, Portfolio of NED and Advisory Roles.

The Awards are backed by Prime Sponsor TSYS, a Global Payments Company. Other sponsors include American Express, Banking Circle, Ethoca, Fiserv, and Mastercard.
