This edition, with the theme “Expanding Retail Merchants’ Possibilities” will highlight the various opportunities available to retail merchants for payment processing in light of the various ingenious solutions emerging almost on a daily basis.
In a statement by the organizers of the event, Global Accelerex Ltd, the leading Payment Terminal Service Provider and Payment Solution Service Provider, it was revealed that the Committee of e-Business Industry Heads (CeBIH) of all banks operating in the country, has thrown its weight behind this essential platform, as co-hosts.

The event will also provide a platform of interaction between merchants and service providers which promises to foster better understanding of the needs and preferences of the merchants.
