Events 2015 – 2017

Here you find an overview about all the events, where the IPFA plays an active part in either by giving a presentation, as exhibitor or as organizer/sponsor.

In order to make it easier to find the different venue, we have divided this overview into three geographies:

IPFA welcomes Madfoo3atCom as a new Affiliate Member


The International Payments Framework Association is proud to inform that Madfoo3atCom has become its latest Affliate Member earlier this month.

Madfoo3atCom is a Jordan-based company, established in 2011, that provides a centralized electronic bill presentation and payment (EBPP) service first to the local Jordan market and the NENA region at a later stage; it connects banks with billers to facilitate online real-time secure bill inquiry and payment services through electronic banking channels 24/7.

As the IPFA is moving into the area of International Real-time Payments, this new member will be a perfect fit with the future strategy of the Association. Futhermore Madfoo3atCom is its first member headquartered in the Middle East region, where we hope that others will follow.

IPFA at Sibos 2015 in Singapore


As all the years before since its foundation in 2010, the IPFA will be present at Sibos, taking place from October 12th until 15th, 2015 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Like Sibos 2014 in Boston, the IPFA will no longer have its own booth, but you will find Elizabeth McQuerry, IPFA CEO, and Manfred Schuck, IPFA Corporate Secretary, at the Equens Stand (J37) in the Exhibition Hall. If you would like to arrange for a meeting with either one of them, please use the ‘Contact’-button on this website and send us your proposal. We will contact you for further coordination. If you want to just come by and say ‘Hello’, please ask one of the Equens-staff to put you into contact either with Elizabeth McQuerry or Manfred Schuck. Either way, we are looking forward to see you at Sibos 2015 in Singapore!
