Hosting the Diners Club International Regional Conference

Diners Club Emea Regional Conference

Hosting the Diners Club International® Europe, Middle East and Africa Regional Conference is one of the highlights of the year for me. This year, 100 senior executives from our franchises, acquiring partners, Diners Club and Discover gathered in Munich to discuss the opportunities, challenges and changes happening across the region.

We had many excellent presentations, highlighting innovations in payments across the world, showcasing new products and ways of engaging with our clubmembers and merchants. I’d like to thank all of our speakers for sharing their thoughts and insights across all of these areas.

A region that stretches from Norway to South Africa and from Portugal to the far eastern tip of Russia obviously has differences in language, culture, economic prospects and ways of doing business. But what struck me over the past couple of days are the things we all share. One element of this is our desire to belong, whether to our families, our local community or the group of people we work with. We had a great couple of days together in Munich, so as our delegates return home I hope they will leave with a real sense of belonging to the Diners Club family.
