Welcome to 2024! ATMIA and our industry left 2023 in the rear-view mirror and really embraced what felt like the first full normal year in a while. That is not to say the world did not have its fair share of challenges, of which many of those are still going on today. The global threat of war is a constant consideration along with the incredible quick rise in AI and the opportunities it provides many of us. ATMIA has launched its Global Advocacy Council, led by Sofia Sadiq, and we are working on numerous partnerships with other associations to expand our reach and address several payment choice issues. ATMIA will continue to be a leader in driving support for ATM Advocacy and Education.
A few other items to note for 2024, we have decided to go back to London, where it all started for ATMIA Europe, for our 2024 ATMIA Europe and Emerging Markets ATMs and Cash Summit. The dates of the conference will be 8-10, October 2024. Our call for speakers will be going out in the coming months so be on the look out and be a part of the premier Global ATM Industry Conference. We will be launching our 2024 Member/Delegate ATMIA Annual Survey in February and would really like you to complete it. This will help ATMIA focus on those issues which are important to you. Keep an eye out for the survey in our newsletters along with via email. It is very simple to complete, and we will offer all who complete the survey a chance to be entered into a prize drawing.
On behalf of the entire ATMIA team, I wish all of you a healthy, safe, and prosperous year and look forward to seeing you all at one of our events. In the meantime if you have any questions, comments, thoughts or suggestions, please email me at [email protected]. Cheers!
