The Organizer


Empiria Group is the first and remains the prime event organizer for payment acceptance topics in Europe.

It all began with European Card Acquiring Forum, the biggest and most regarded event of its kind, organized on an annual basis since 2008. In seven consecutive years ECAF - now Merchant Payments Ecosystem (MPE) attracted more than 1.900 unique senior payment acceptance industry professionals - merchants, bank and non-bank acquirers, PSPs, processors, ISO's, solution providers, card schemes, MNOs, industry experts and regulators...

Following continuous market developments and progress towards more convenient payment methods to be used at the merchant point of sale, card, mobile and online payments are now part of our thematic coverage embodied into newly created Merchant Payments Ecosystem

Merchant Payments Ecosystem
MPE focuses and explores payments acceptance at POS, covering mobile, ecommerce and cards. It is a new international acquiring forum for all involved professionals.

Empiria Group
provides year round business development, extensive marketing and media support before, during and after the event execution. We enable our clients to expand the networking opportunities with our growing LinkedIn community counting over 6.500 members, representing the core of payment acceptance value chain.

Beside providing the industry with esteemed educational and business-to-business activities, we also strive to recognize and honor the most important achievements in payment acceptance business. Former ECAF Awards, now known as MPE Awards, honor the innovators and best performing companies and individuals for achievements that help to move the payment acceptance market forward.

The MPE Awards ceremony regularly takes place during our annual conference, where the winners are awarded with ''Guiding Hand'' sculpture, by the up-and-coming young European artists.
