ICG LIVE at 20th Annual SEAA Conference

Let’s Network and Train Together

Who is more ready to get out than the fintech representatives to meet up and strategize on What Is Next for the Payments Industry? Small taco shops, insurance brokers, law offices, and even the health care offices had to figure out how to go from accepting payment in person or in the mail to highly innovative mobile tech, hosted payment portals, encrypted iFrame solutions, SMS and email invoicing options, MOTO services, and a variety of integrations with ecommerce platforms that gave their customers the same level of security when they held their card or their check in their hand. They entrusted their payment method to the business owner to transact for them for products and services. A timeclock started that may have jolted the economy into a very consumer driven digital ACH and credit card transaction experience.

Well, it will get busy down the streets of our beautiful city of Bonita Springs, FL from May 24- May 26, 2021, as these exhibitors and attendees excitedly fly and/or drive over to meet with colleagues of the electronics payments industry. They continually consider what else is out there for their customers to efficiently and cost effectively get online with the most innovative solutions they can customize with the connections they make during the conference. With over 70 vendors present, seminar participants can enjoy the sunshine of our Florida state as they learn about the latest in MOTO services, email invoicing, encrypted iFrame solutions, mobile tech opportunities, and a variety of hosted payment integrations to satisfy the needs of a business who desires to seamlessly provide their customers the ability to pay contactless, online, and over the phone with the highest level of security from PCI Scope and Nacha compliance standards.

SEAA Leading the Way

The Southeast Acquirers Association, SEAA, a community of professionals that meet to develop opportunities such as this conference they have put on for 20 years now, seeks to facilitate growth of the electronics payments industry in size and integrity, through training, education, and networking. Exhibitors and attendees from around the United States will convene at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita, Springs, Florida to view demos on financial hardware and network with other payment professionals as they listen to a variety of training topics that include the future of fintech, how to continue evolving in light of Covid-19, the inside scoop on crypto currency, and some training on sales in the merchant application process.

In the agenda, SEAA will host over 70 exhibitors, offering a variety of payment solutions to attending ISOs, ISVs, and other merchant service providers. Large credit card processors will be present, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. Merchant payment processors like Fiserv, FIS, and Elavon will sponsor and exhibit for participants as well. Starting Monday, May 24, 2021, even payment solution providers from Aurora, North American Bancard, and EMS will attend to showcase their solutions. I am excited that our company, iCheckGateway.com, secured an exhibitor table to bring some of our ICG team to the event to network with other likeminded professionals in the payment industry as each seeks to provide the most futuristic trending digital payment solutions to our ISO, IVR, referring business partners and merchant customers. We intend to build relationships and showcase why they would want to work with ICG.

With the world under distress of the pandemic, some will still have concern about restrictions for social distancing and sanitation. The SEAA advisory board has taken extra precautions with much detailed strategy to follow the latest CDC guidelines for their guests attending from all over the United States. Exhibit halls will provide well placed sanitation stations, and the hotel venue requires masks to be worn while anyone remains inside. As far as outside restrictions, the event provides a lot of fresh air opportunities for networking conversations, eating and drinking session times, and a well thought out evening of fun under the stars by the waterfall, reception sponsored by Worldpay by FIS and games sponsored by iCheckGateway.com.

Since the COVID-19 distress caused conferences to go to virtual merchant tradeshows and meetings, many of these payment companies have not shook hands, much less been in the same room for training since 2019. SEAA will provide in person training by a variety of knowledgeable payment industry speakers on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 and in person, hands on demonstrations by 6 of the top POS and payment solution providers. Sponsoring exhibitors will help with this event, providing a variety of opportunities to network after such a long tenure away from making eye contact. These sponsors will help these in person meetings with small tokens of helpful additions to the presentations and demonstrations. Sponsoring exhibitors registered early to add receptions for strategized healthy networking with carefully planned meals offered, charging stations for devices, reusable water bottles, Wi-Fi, a hospitality center for break away relaxation, hand sanitizer stations, an interactive mobile app to keep connected to activities and leads made during the event, and a grand party thrown Monday night with music, games like cornhole with prizes to win.
