Minnetonka, MN—February 9, 2012—With the majority of conference attendees claiming "primary or significant influence" on the direction of their purchase-to-pay strategies, it’s no wonder the Exhibit Hall and product and technology demonstrations draw an engaged audience at the National Association of Purchasing Card Professionals’ (NAPCP) Annual Conference ( In addition to a spectrum of payment solutions, top-of-mind technology issues include automation of audit, Purchasing Card controls, and tax compliance. This year’s conference, scheduled for April 16-19, 2012, will be held at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The best registration rates are available through March 2, 2012.

"With travel budgets still under close scrutiny for most organizations," says Sue Stein, NAPCP Meeting and Event Manager, "the NAPCP strives to build an event that offers everything ‘under one roof.’ In addition to participation in the Exhibit Hall and demos (, the NAPCP offers attendees the chance to meet one-on-one with participating providers. Some are embarking on a mandated request for proposal process while others enjoy focused time with their own provider."

These private meetings augment several networking events planned throughout the four-day event, including receptions in the Exhibit Hall, an NAPCP Members-Only Event and the Industry Networking Luncheon. Open discussions are expanded this year: In addition to roundtable discussions, attendees can participate in interactive "hot topic discussions" and Q&A periods built into every session.

Several presentations, including keynote Lee Wetherington, director of strategic insight, ProfitStars, will cover the technology behind B2B payment efficiency. Patricia McGinnis, research director for Mercator Advisory Group Inc., is hosting a consultative session titled, "Selecting Card Management Tools: Opportunities for Operational Efficiency." Patricia’s session description notes, "…technology choices are more plentiful than ever before. New state-of-the-art options are emerging that provide advanced capabilities, including self-servicing functions, transaction data enrichment, request queuing, receipt imaging and approval workflows."

The conference program, schedule, list of participating providers and attendee organization list are all available from the conference website at A direct link to the Omni Hotel reservation system ensures the NAPCP group rate through March 16, 2012.
