February 20, 2018 – Washington, D.C.— The Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) today announced that Lou Anne Alexander, Group President of Payments at Early Warning Services, will participate in a fireside chat discussing how P2P and mobile applications are changing the payments industry. The fireside chat will take place at 8:30 a.m., Thursday, April 19 during TRANSACT, the world’s largest payments technology trade show, in Las Vegas, Nev.
“According to ETA’s Payment Trends to Watch in 2018, this year will see an increased focus on new payment networks to carry transaction volume,” said Jason Oxman, CEO of ETA. “Networks and services including Zelle are being built around the needs of businesses and consumers for fast settlement, low costs and to increase availability.

TRANSACT, April 17-19, 2018, will bring together all parts of the payments ecosystem – from ISOs/VARs to ISVs and large financial institutions to technology companies, to meet, see what’s new, and learn what it takes to grow.
