The SegPay team is back from Europe and we want to thank AVN, Xbiz, and TES for putting on three great events. We were there for all three, and had a blast touching base with our European partners and merchants.
As always, Webmaster Access in Amsterdam was very well attended and AVN put on a first-class conference. The Meet Market was packed and our table was busy non-stop. The ear buds we gave away were a hit, and if you didn’t get a pair just let us know and we will make sure you get some in Vegas.
Although Xbiz Berlin was smaller in scale, the intimacy allowed for quality one-on-one time, and made for great events like the boat tour of Berlin. What a great chance to see all of Berlin’s beauty, lit up in the night sky, while relaxing and socializing with friends in the industry.
A couple of key recurring themes throughout the shows included the U.K. Digital Economy Act, taking effect in April of 2018, along with age verification and its potential impact. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was another looming legislative item on people’s minds. We are keeping a close eye on all of these issues and will be working with our merchants and partners to identify the best possible solutions.
TES in Prague was also heavily attended. Everyone loved the new venue and the show floor was incredibly organized and well laid-out.
Overall, it was a productive European swing, with lots of great meetings and opportunities to follow up on in the days and weeks ahead. If we missed you at the shows, please get in touch. We look forward to seeing everyone in Vegas!
