Incubated in 2008, originally as an annual conference, in Toronto, Prepaid Exchange Canada was born in March 2011, as the Domestic (Local) Exchange for Global Prepaid Exchange (now GX) of the UK. Effectively, we are the feet on the ground to bring our industry together with greater regularity, precise focus on the Canadian landscape and to drive adoption of our respective prepaid and payments related services.
Our responsibility is to engage and grow our Community, where we have a respected platform to stimulate and educate consumers, regulators and stakeholders on best practices, trends, challenges and opportunities. To promote excellent relations and build superior relationships, domestically and globally. To expand our stakeholder service capabilities, functionality and engagement through technology, innovation, security and interoperability, so that we may ultimately increase the adoption of our products and services by citizens, organizations and governments.
Our well established dynamic and influential Community of thought leaders, industry and product shapers are comprised of companies doing business here and others who intend to do business here, in Canada. Our Chairman, Dave Hunt’s role is to guide, nurture, stimulate and bring together those leaders from Gift, Prepaid. Financial, Digital, Mobile and the Payments industries to innovate, collaborate and educate, so that our vertical industry challenges and opportunities are well aligned, both tactically and logistically, across company responsibilities and shareholdership, together with overall brand strategies, so that we can ultimately realize success through exponential growth, in particular, for our PX Community Members.
