Why You Belong at the 2017 NAPCP Annual Conference
P-Card, Travel Card, ePayables


Why Attend the Conference? 

 

Target Audience: Who attends? Who speaks?

The NAPCP Commercial Card and Payment Conference is the premier education and networking event in the industry, covering all Commercial Card and payment vehicles, including Purchasing Card, Travel Card, Fleet Card, Ghost Card, Declining Balance Card, ePayables and other electronic payment options.

This event gathers hundreds of end-users (from corporate, government and higher education organizations) and providers, who develop and support the payment infrastructure.
Take a look at our attendee organization list to see who came to the 2016 conference.

Most Breakout Sessions are presented by end-users, with a nice complement of providers offering educational sessions, Product and Technology Demonstrations, and expertise in the Exhibit Hall. To stretch your travel dollar, we recommend you schedule a one-on-one meeting with participating providers (look for details in early 2017). 

Why Attend? Education

We've put together a variety of educational formats that appeal to every learning style: formal classroom-style presentations with Q&A, product and technology demonstrations from leading providers, and more intimate roundtable discussion sessions. We provide links to presentations* so attendees can review key takeaways after the conference. Visit the Sessions page often as details unfold.

Attendees earn three points toward Certified Purchasing Card Professional initial eligibility or recertification.

*We may not be permitted to post all presentations; decision to post is at the discretion of the speaker and his or her organizational policies.

Why Attend? Networking

Year after year, the NAPCP Annual Conference receives high marks from attendees who appreciate the many "built-in" events that take the work out of networking. See the Schedule-at-a-Glance for more information.

Why Attend? Meet Industry Providers and Experts

There's nothing like an Exhibit Hall to learn more about today's products, services and industry trends. So with all this provider expertise under one roof, we move it beyond the hall into Partner Sponsor Breakout Sessions (educational) and Product and Technology Demonstrations (providers' chance to sell; end-users' chance to evaluate). During our Call for Presenters process, we secure end-users, consultants and other industry experts to deliver and facilitate keynote presentations, educational sessions, hot topic discussions and roundtables.

Testimonials

The following comments are from last year's Annual Conference attendees:

“It was an experience of a lifetime. I met a lot of great people, learned a great deal of things, and was able to network with top-of-the-line industry experts."

"This was my first conference. I really enjoyed having the chance to network with my peers. I'm the only person in my office who deals with P-Cards, so I rarely have the chance to discuss all the possibilities. I feel like I found my people!" 

“I came away feeling like I had achieved my goals for this conference.” 

“The NAPCP puts on a good conference at great venues each year. It is noticeable the NAPCP works very hard to coordinate these events. The conferences are always full of information that is helpful and the opportunities that are afforded are much appreciated. The networking lunches are always excellent.”

“I love meeting end-users that have similar programs and hear their best practices. I love learning about new technology in the P-Card world.”
