Who comes to an LFPA Event?

LFPA events focus very much on content. We have industry practitioners as speakers sharing their insights into the key issues of the day. We don’t sell speaking slots, which means our presentations are not sales pitches thus attracting delegates who want to keep up-to-date with innovations and best practices. Most delegates are senior decision-makers. Our delegates are predominately the people doing the job and making purchasing decisions related to Loyalty Fraud Prevention.
