Transaction Innovation Forum 2023

November 20, 2023

Tokyo, Japan

The Transaction Innovation Forum (TIF) is an exclusive high-end forum on key global developments in the financial logistics and B2B corporate payments environment.

Top policy makers, regulators and industry executives (from Banks/large Corporates) in roles of CFO’s, Treasurers, Cash Managers and CIO’s; but also solution providers and consultants) gather annually to exchange global best practices and share expertise.

TIF will take place on Monday, 20 November 2023.

TIF is a ‘for & by professionals’ Forum where senior executives meet and discuss key developments. We secure a top level agenda with essential briefings and debates around relevant topics and challenge in the payments space. Sharing the global expertise and supporting the ‘learning curve’ is our mission.

TIF has been initiated by two seasoned international payments professionals: Dr Michael Salmony and Harry Smorenberg. Dedicated to the developments and innovations in the Payments & Transaction space, they aim to fill the lack of structural exchange of international expertise in particular in the B2B (B2B2C) space. As seasoned experts and moderators they developed this annual program for APAC-region. TIF has focus on bringing top-content; commercial free and encouraging the content-focused debate amongst professionals.

Why participate?

  • TIF 2023 is a true professionals platform with a key focus on B2B & B2B2C.
  • Banks, (near)Banks and Corporates realise the need to accelerate and shift to real-time and employ data; and thus giving them and their customers flexibility to a.o. personalise product features and automate flows.
  • Customers also demand more digital experiences and capabilities as retail and B2B merchants need to create omnichannel experiences to meet their customer’s expectations.
  • To carry the new services we see a continuous need to modernise the backend and payments infrastructure to enable faster, secure national and cross-border payments, for consumers and businesses alike.
  • Proactively helping clients to optimise their working capital; strengthen liquidity management tools, such as virtual accounts and notional pooling, to provide advanced treasury functions, to automate invoices and reconciliations, to predict and manage cash flows enabling customers to unlock their cash faster…
  • To serve the SME market – which typically makes up over 90% of a country’s economy – but which is chronically underserved by incumbents. The “democratisation of digital financial services” finally allows SME access to advanced tools previously reserved for large corporates.
  • Better orchestrate financial ecosystems for global commerce and asset serving…
  • Upgrade core infrastructure for digital enablement and service externalisation (exploring new partnerships with providers / outsource noncore activities).

These are some essentials why we would like to invite you to participate in TIF 2023 and learn, discuss and meet international peers at expert level. An annual gathering of true professionals around with a focus on Asia but learning best practices from around the world in a compelling in-depth program (see the detailed program).
