The World Financial Symposium offers a packed and exciting agenda covering the major financial hot topics of the aviation industry:
Airline Card Payment Masterclass - 26 Sept from 13:00 to 14:00 In this session, led by Christophe Kato, IATA's card payment expert and Head of Industry Card Services, we will go through the complexities of card payment when applied to airline sales.
The card payment guarantee is too often over-shadowed by the real risk of fraud and commercial chargebacks. Payment legislation is fast modifying the environment affecting all retailers including airlines.
BSP card sales process and local variations to PCI DSS and fraud prevention are 2 sides of the same coin, although industry shared infrastructures such as the BSP or airport kiosks have called for an innovative approach.
An array of new industry programs are led by IATA to address the challenges airlines face with card payment.
ICCS, ICH & IATA TD Workshop - 28 Sept from 13:00 to 14:00 In this session we will be presenting the latest updates concerning
ICCS and important changes that will take place in 2018, with a new project that will bring more flexibility to members and increase the competitiveness of our services.
The session will also include a live demonstration of IATA TD and the latest enhancements. This treasury tool combined to ICCS supports your global cash management in the most efficient way.
There will also be a Q&A session.
