Celebrating Innovation in Emerging Payments

The Emerging Payments Awards celebrate innovation and collaboration by recognising companies that have made significant advances in how we pay today. The 2020 winners were announced on the 26th of November at the virtual Emerging Payments Awards Ceremony, streamed online for the global payments community to enjoy.

Now in its 14th year, the Emerging Payments Awards is the UK industry’s most prestigious event and an amazing networking opportunity. The 2021 edition will take place on the 6th of October at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London. Announcement for the entry deadline and other details of the ceremony will be coming soon so stay tuned…

For 2020 the EP Awards supported...

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling, and 2020 was especially challenging for many people. Last year’s EP Awards’ charity of choice is MIND. With the help of EPA member ForGoodCauses and the support of our Project Recovery Team we will be raising funds for them as well as making a donation ourselves.

A reason to celebrate

2020 has been a hard year for many, but it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Out of the chaos, some truly innovative projects and collaborations have been born, as evidenced by the quality of nominations we received.

Last year’s Christmas parties were looking very unlikely, so we had to pull out all the stops to make the Emerging Payments Awards a truly fun, engaging celebration, but from the socially distanced comfort of your homes and offices. 

Last year’s EP Awards Host, Sara Pascoe is an award winning comedian and writer. She is the writer, star and executive producer of the BBC series, ‘Out of Her Mind,’ and host of ‘Guessable’ (Comedy Central) and ‘Comedians Giving Lectures’ (Dave).
