June 8, 2010 (AllPayNews) Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Following in the footsteps of perspectives’08 in Florence (Italy), perspectives’10 – The Art of Payments took place in Prague (Czech Republic) from June 3-4, 2010. Staying true to its original format, the conference was designed exclusively for top eMerchants from around the world and dedicated to international online payment trends and fraud prevention. With a capacity of 150 attendees, the event was fully booked with representatives from Blizzard Entertainment, eBay, The Financial Times, Nike, Skype, TNT, and Vodafone among many others.

During the conference, eCommerce merchants were presenting best practice cases studies to fellow merchants, able to network face-to-face, and have lively peer discussions during numerous themed workshops. Keynote speakers included Andreas S. Weigend, former Chief Scientist of Amazon.com and Polly A. Bauer, former President & CEO of Home Shopping Network Credit Corporation.
