The CardLinx Association, the association that facilitates the interoperability and growth of the card-linked offers industry, will share insights on this rapidly growing sector at the Keefe, Bruyette & Woods’ annual Cards, Payments and Financial Technology Symposium on February 10 in New York City.
Silvio Tavares, CardLinx President and founding CEO, will lead a session titled, “Card Linked Offers- The Next Big Opportunity in Payments” taking place from 12:10-1:30 pm PT. The panel will feature the following industry leaders:

Card linked offers stand at the unique intersection of the payments, social media, advertising and retail industries. As the “offers” space has become more popular, consumers have often found it cumbersome to take advantage of the variety and amount of deals available. Card-linked offers help solve that problem by giving merchants and advertisers the ability to deliver an offer or deal to consumers via their credit, debit or other payment cards without having to use a paper coupon, voucher or promotion code.
