Why Attend the Conference?

Review the many ways to demonstrate the value of attending to management

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 more than 600 end-users (from corporate, government and higher education organizations) and providers, who develop and support the payment infrastructure.
Take a look at the list of attending organizations to date.

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 2019.)

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. Beginning in November, 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. With all this provider expertise under one roof, we move it beyond the hall into Partner Sponsor Breakout Sessions (educational) and Provider Demonstrations (providers' chance to sell and introduce their new technologies and innovations; 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.


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

"The networking events were spot on. The meet and greet, roundtables and the lunches and happy hour events were valuable for further networking."

"I was just really impressed overall by the quality and passion of all the speakers/sessions."

"It was wonderful to see some old friends again and to meet some new faces. The breakout sessions I attended all seemed to engage the audiences well and the exhibit hall traffic stayed brisk through the last time slot."

"The sessions were excellent and speakers alike. I always find them informative and learn from them."

"I liked that you provided some time in the middle of the first day of sessions to network and catch up with other attendees."

"Opening session was terrific and got us off on a great start: an appropriate warm up. In general, I appreciated the overall blend of information and opportunities to network. I always learn something new and appreciate receiving the PowerPoint presentations afterwards for reference."

"I always come back excited about all the content."
