London, 27 August 2013 - RBTE, Europe’s biggest and fastest growing retail solutions show is excited to announce its plan to cover the topic of payments in even greater detail at its 2014 event in March.

Since its launch three years ago RBTE with its strong focus on payments has been the leading merchant facing payments exhibition with 60+ retail payments specialists exhibiting and a dedicated payments conference theatre as part of its overall offering.  In an exciting new development a steering committee of payment industry experts has been formed to concentrate purely on payments and the issues that directly relate to it.   

Part of the committee's role will be to work with the organisers to ensure the payments element of the RBTE conference programme delivers exactly the right content for its retailer audience.  

Nick Field, event director at RBTE, said: "By working with our payments steering committee we will be delivering the most comprehensive two days payments conference available to European retailers.

"We are lucky to work with an extensive network of partners and associations in this key area of retail, and will continue to work closely with key partners including Vendorcom, the membership organisation which represents key stakeholders in the cards and payments industry, which have been an important show partner since the beginning and will continue in that role in future.

"We know that payments affect the entire retail landscape and decision makers and influencers are no longer limited to the finance department – operations, marketing, eCommerce, fraud and of course the IT department are all stakeholders and that's why payments is of such integral importance to RBTE and the expo provides the perfect platform to address these issues."

RBTE runs between 11-12 March 2014 at London's Earls Court.
