The leading payments and fraud prevention conference brings people together in uncertain times

Seattle, WA - April 20, 2021 -- The Merchant Risk Council (MRC) is continuing its legacy of industry-leading payments and fraud prevention events with an ambitious online conference designed to connect, educate, and empower eCommerce professionals from around the world. MRC Spring Virtual will take place on April 27 - 29, 2021 and will feature three days of speakers, presentations, workshops, networking opportunities, and more. MRC conferences have an extensive history of fostering connection between professionals from across the payments spectrum, including solution providers, merchants, law enforcement, and anyone else working toward making eCommerce better for all.

"This year's Spring Virtual conference is yet another opportunity for us to demonstrate why our events are consistently considered the best in the industry," says Julie Fergerson, CEO of the MRC. "Though we are looking forward to meeting in person when it is safe, last year's Fall Virtual was a huge success by virtually every metric, and we are excited to continue that pattern of success with Spring Virtual 2021."

Presenters this year include speakers from Google, Microsoft, Facebook, J.P. Morgan, the MRC, and dozens of other companies, all focusing on highlighting the latest technologies, strategies, and developments in payments and fraud prevention.

Registration is open now, along with a detailed schedule of the event. Please contact the MRC with any questions.
