The Remittances and Money Transfers Conference is the place where remittances and money transfer and payments professionals in the SADC region meet and discuss present challenges, opportunities and future scenarios

The list of attendees for the 2019 conference reads like a who’s who list of top practitioners in the payments industry dealing with remittances.  Money transfer operators, banks, consultancies, service providers and many others must mark this off in their annual calendars as a must attend event.

Due to the lockdown, the 2020 conference has been postponed and will now take place on 18 & 19 March 2021 at the Indaba Hotel, with an updated programme to reflect the 2021 payments landscape.
