We Are The Industry
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Oct. 26, 2015 /CNW/ -- The first Canadian Strategy Alliance (CSA) was held at the J.W Marriott in Muskoka from September 27th to the 29th, 2015. An initiative from InComm Canada, the event attracted over 150 people from more than 70 of biggest players in the Canadian prepaid and payment solutions industries to discuss the matters that are relevant to the Canadian marketplace.
With more than 100 one-on-one meetings scheduled over the course of 2 ½ days, as well as 2 industry relevant seminars focusing on Prepaid in the global arena and Canadian merchandising trends, the CSA proved its importance to the industry as 98.5% of the attendees confirm their intention to attend the event in 2016, and 90% rated their experience as "very good" or "outstanding." "The success of the CSA is a testimony to the industry's desire to meet and cooperate to drive growth together," said Felipe Papaleo, General Manager for InComm Canada.
Ideas were shared, innovation was revealed and initiatives were planned as a result of having the top representatives from partners, retailers and suppliers "talking Canadian" and collectively driving our industry forward. To end a day of hard work, Raine Maida accompanied by his wife Chantal Kreviazuk preformed for the group at the small, intimate venue.
