ATM & Cash Innovation Europe 2017 Will Be a Special One

March 14, 2017         By: Mike Dautner

ATMIA has recently issued a call to arms in a sense for the purposes of the ATM industry in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the invention of the ATM and the association’s 20th anniversary with the support for the original flagship European ATM conference, ATMIA’s 16th annual mid-year event for the industry.

“To mark this special milestone in the ATM industry, ATMIA has produced what strikes me as the greatest ever ATM conference programme,” commented Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA. “I was there at the founding of this European event by ATMIA Europe back in 2001 and I have watched it grow each year to receive our highest ever attendance last year. This is the major ATM industry event centred in Europe, an event by the industry association for the industry. It’s appropriate in the 50th year of ATMs and the 20th year of ATMIA to come home to the true, original European ATM event, run by its founders, ATMIA, rather than to any breakaway events the industry didn’t seek or need.”

Seemingly apropos, as the ATM is in a state of flux ‘ATM,’ as the kids are saying it, (as in ‘at the moment’-oh yeah, that’s right) the industry is redefining the nature of its existence through the process of the global industry RFI for Next Generation ATMs, coordinated by ATMIA. This is so that the associations flagship event will remain center stage of innovation with substantial new conference partners, renaming itself as the “ATM & Cash Innovation Europe 2017” conference.

“Our renewed flagship ATM event for the ATM’s 50th birthday is the only platform ever which has brought together the two leading visionaries of the ATM Industry, Mr Bill Nuti, CEO of NCR and Mr Andy Mattes, CEO of Diebold-Nixdorf,” Lee continued. “These revered speakers spearhead the finest speaker roster ever assembled in our industry, including MasterCard, speakers from some of the most important banks across the planet, including ANZ, Barclays, Caixabank, DBS from Singapore, HSBC, Santander and Standard Bank of South Africa. In addition, ATMIA’s historic conference features the inspirational CEO of the world’s largest ATM operator, Cardtronics, as well as the CEO of South America’s most successful ATM operator and a senior representative of the People’s Bank of China. In addition, the audience will gain key insights from Worldline and major software developers such Auriga, KAL and SBS.”
