    added: 28-05-2018   

    The highest quality industrial and professional event shall be described by three measures. Such meeting definitely must deliver modern knowledge to participants and inspire them to open minds towards short- and mid-term future.

Time will tell whether SEPA credit transfer will win the trust of the customers, but looking at the current interest of the Spaniards with new payment solutions, optimism in this case is completely understandable.

    added: 09-08-2017   Author: Cezary Kosiński

    Recent Money2020Europe conference still attracts my attention despite it’s been more than a month since returning from windy Copenhagen.
