The Premium Ecosystem Partner membership is a new membership category that the EBA has created to better respond to more comprehensive needs and interests of industry players with regard to the Association’s thought leadership, educational and networking activities.
“The EBA’s mission is to foster dialogue and experience exchange between the various payments industry practitioners,” said Thomas Egner, Secretary General of the Euro Banking Association. “Against this background, our Board highly welcomes the strong engagement between the financial and technology sectors reflected through our growing Ecosystem Partner community and their increasing contribution to our activities.”
“By accommodating different levels of engagement, we are striving to optimally serve and further expand our membership from all c orners of the payments industry and from key stakeholder groups, including start-ups and academia,” said Daniel Szmukler, Director at the Euro Banking Association. “We are very pleased that seven of our Ecosystem Partners have already opted to become Premium Ecosystem Partners, which testifies to the added value this new membership category brings to them.”
Members in the Premium Ecosystem Partnership category benefit from package deals and enhanced partnership opportunities in relation to EBA networking and educational activities. This includes free tickets to EBA Schools and Seminars.
