The main purpose of CROSSTECH (Formerly IMTC) is to provide hybrid events: our in-person events is a stage for executives to network with colleagues from all sectors of the industry to develop partnerships that move the industry forward; the virtual component of our events caters for members of the industry who are eager to listen to industry experts, learn from our sessions and network digitally with any participants. Our PNET digital community is a way for all members to network! Our presential & virtual sessions bring current issues to light challenging participants to interact, comment, share their views & opinions, discuss trends and discover opportunities.
CROSSTECH enables sponsors to showcase their products and services, both virtually and in our in-person trade show, and facilitates the development of partnerships, increasing the reach of payment & communication networks and encouraging innovation and cooperation in the field. IMTC partners with industry associations worldwide and encourages fintech start-ups to come and showcase their ideas. We have developed the RemTECH Awards, a yearly event hosted by the Global Forum on Remittances, Investment & Development, GFRID organized by IFAD, World Bank & the United Nations.
With the growth of the industry, the increased focus on this dynamic space and the evolution and emergence of new entrants from across the digital and physical payments world, the industry is converging on the CROSSTECH stage which is at the center of the cross-border money transfer revolution.
