Hear what attendees said about the 2017 Mid-Year Conference:

“Informative. I usually pick up two or three tidbits of information that helps me in my job.”

“Loved to see the growth in MYC and all of the merchant and sponsor prospects - really engaged group!”

“This is my second MAG conference and both times I have gone back to my company with to-dos.”

“I enjoyed networking, was very impressed with the attention that was given to the needs of the merchant membership, and was challenged to determine how I can help shape the changes to the payments industry. The merchant only sessions were invaluable!”

“I thought it was very good. I have attended a different financial conference regularly for 20 years. This was more valuable due to smaller size and ability to network and learn critical knowledge and trends.”
