Each spring, the industry comes together at conferences and events to discuss the latest trends, share knowledge and showcase the products and services shaping the exciting future of payments.

This year, you’ll find Federal Reserve Financial Services (FRFS) — an organization within the Federal Reserve System that manages critical payment and securities services — at numerous upcoming industry conferences (Off-site) across the U.S. FRFS will engage with the industry on instant payments adoption and the FedNow® Service (Off-site), the latest in fraud and scams mitigation, and ways the Fed is continuing to innovate on payment products and services and through its role as a leader catalyst in advancing payments for all.
