EVS Goes Back to the Future with MWAA

  • Fraud Prevention

EVS was delighted to have the opportunity to attend the Midwest Acquirers Association Annual Conference this year. With the conference being held in Chicago, we knew the 5-hour drive would be well worth the chance to learn more from our industry peers. Beyond the educational values of the conference, we knew this would be the prefect opportunity to meet some of our partners and clients face to face. With the new release of our Premiere Partnership Program, I was excited to talk about it first hand to other industry advocates.

Wednesday was the official kick off to the conference. There were sessions throughout the day, which discussed the most current issues and trends in the industry. One of our biggest goals was to meet our current and potential partners as well as spread the importance for identity verification and authentication and how it pertains to the industry. We attended the Pre Conference Keynote as well as the Shark Tank Competition that day as well (Congratulations POS Portal for being the innovation winner!). During the opening reception we met with many current and potential new partners like Chargeback Guardian, 1st Pay Gateway, PayLeap, Cocard, Actum Processing, Phil Hinke, and many others. Its always nice to meet other industry leaders!

Thursday was the last day and it was spent meeting with many of the exhibitors, ISOs, merchants, gateways, processors, etc. that we didnt get to meet with the day before. Overall, it was a great show at an absolutely perfect venue.We are definitely looking forward to the addition of many fraud prevention partners in the upcoming months.
