Presented by the Electronic Transactions Association (ETA), Transact16 boasts 4,000+ attendees, 200+ exhibitors and over 55,000 feet of exhibitor space.

OMEGA attendees will participate in the following six educational track sessions:

  • Politics and Policy

In addition, daily keynote sessions will feature discussions from industry-leading companies, including VeriFone, Discover and First Data.
