#PAY — We’re Well Under Way!

We haven’t posted a blog in a while. We’ve been busy with building the event, but we wanted to take this opportunity to share some of our progress with you. We’ll tell you about some new forthcoming initiatives and ways you can participate in the #PAY Symposium & Exposition.

First things first, We’re proud to announce that Wayne Brown of The Walker Group has been appointed Chairman of the #PAY Advisory Group.

This group of senior leaders from across the entire spectrum of the payments, fintech and banking industry will participate in and help guide the event as it grows.

We look forward to Wayne’s guidance and his advisory board’s influence for the event and encourage your organization to get involved and participate in our upcoming event.

Secondly, we want to welcome all of the media partners who have joined us and are promoting our August 2019 event. We’re pleased to have added a variety of leading financial publications and web based news and information sources as our media partners.

We’d like to extend a sincere thank you to all these media partners. If your fintech news organization or publication would like to become a media partner please contact us today. We’re always looking for new media partners — if you vlog, blog or are a journalist for in the payments, fintech and banking space we are interested in partnering with you.

We’d like to thank our event host Caesars Palace for providing us with a premier venue for the event. Due to the Caesars recent $100 Million dollar renovation of the Palace Tower we are able to offer two amazing values for accommodations for our conference room block.

Forum Classic Room $119 Night — Wi-Fi & Gym Pass

Palace Premium Room $169 Per Night — Wi-Fi & Gym

PRO TIP: The Palace Tower is in the same building as the conference center so it’s just a simple elevator ride down to the conference and exhibit area. The Forum Tower is on the opposite side of the Garden of the Gods pool area.

You can either walk around through the lobby, casino and restaurants or exit to the pool level and walk across to the conference area. Both are beautiful rooms at a great conference rate, if you don’t mind the walk the Forum Tower rooms are a great savings and still have all the amenities that Caesars Palace offers.

Discounted rate is available through July 26, 2019, and can be applied to all rooms booked between August 17–21. Use our direct link to make a reservation, or contact Reservations at 866–227–5944, and mention Group Code SCTPE9.

We’re also pleased to announce that Caesars Palace has agreed to allow use of the conference room area on the Monday, August 19th for some pre-event boot camps, workshops and masterclasses.

The Pompeian Ballroom’s 5,467 sq ft separates into four individual spaces that will seat 90 people each in a classroom setup, 135 in theater style and even more for reception or banquets.

If your organization is interested in hosting an event during this pre-event day please contact us. This is a great opportunity to showcase your brand & share information.

We have one last announcement to make before we close out this blog. We’ve recently launched the #PAY Podcast Show where we’ll be interviewing the disruptive innovators speaking, sponsoring, exhibiting and guiding the show as we head into August.

Each week we’ll have a new episode with a distinguished guest that is participating in or supporting the #PAY event. Our #PAY Podcast is currently available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Breaker, Google Podcasts, Overcast, PocketCasts, Radio Public and Stitcher with more to come. Coming soon we’ll also launch #PAY TV, video interviews with leaders in the marketplace.

As we head into February we’ll be fleshing out the www.paysymposium.com website. We’ll be announcing and adding our first round of speakers, and highlighting our sponsors, exhibitors and media partners to the website as well as information on accommodations and travel for delegates attending the event. We’ve also extended our free exhibit registration throughout February and invite everyone to attend network with our sponsors & exhibitors.

It’s shaping up and we’re looking forward to hosting a world-class event. Our call for papers is open and we have opportunities for speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and workshops for our the event.

It’s all being staged August 20–21, 2019 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. For more information and to download our sponsorship prospectus or media kit visit our website at www.paysymposium.com — We look forward to meeting you in person in Las Vegas.
