We at the Gift Card Network are so excited to be attending, presenting, and hosting a dinner at the upcoming Buyatab Summit, happening June 4-5, 2018. Buyatab’s 3rd annual Summit will be held in their hometown, Vancouver, B.C. to a merchant-rich audience, along with other industry members. The Buyatab Summit is an unique opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in the digital gift card space, and one of the best platforms to discuss where the trends of digital gift cards are going in the future.
Buyatab will also be hosting the second partnered GCN Gift Card University, which will kick off the event the morning of June 4th. Attendees of the event will, at no cost, have the opportunity to become Gift Card Geeks and gain a solid foundation of how successful gift card programs are run. Speaker Matt Davies, founder of Powerhouse Brands Consulting and The Gift Card Network, will be presenting, along with industry experts.
“Gift Card University is such a beneficial learning opportunity available to newcomers in the industry. If you’re new to the industry, why not attend? For those already in the industry, it can act as a great refresher course by providing current basics.” —Matias Marquez, Founder & COO, Buyatab
After Monday’s class, attendees can take a quick walk to the opening reception at Glowbal, where they can connect with their fellow attendees over craft cocktails and food inspired by ingredients from across British Columbia. This reception is hosted by The Gift Card Network and sponsored by Travel Tags and Powerhouse Brands.
Bright and early the next morning, attendees will dig into the meat of the content, including a keynote presentation by Claire Booth from Lux Insights and presentations on combating fraud for digital gift cards, and best practices and immediate improvements to your program, plus a deep dive on gift cards at an industry level. GCN will also be presenting on the future of gift card collaboration.
Initially developed as a venue for those in the gift card industry to connect with each other, Buyatab’s annual summit is quickly turning into the go-to gift card event for education around the latest trends, as well as what’s coming next.
“The Buyatab Summit is where future-focused discussions can start.” —Matias Marquez
To cap off the event, attendees will have the opportunity to experience the beauty of Canada from above at Flyover Canada and further network over local beers and wines at Tap & Barrel, while taking in the beautiful views of Vancouver.
