Before Forum, the subject of closed-loop gift cards was relegated to a minor track or single session at larger payments or retail shows. Now, closed-loop gift card industry stakeholders can participate in an event solely focused on this specific industry.

Today the Retail Gift Card Association (RGCA) announced it has opened registration for its inaugural RGCA Forum event October 2 through 4 in Kansas City, Mo. Forum is open to RGCA members and non-members alike. It is an inclusive event for a variety of closed-loop gift card industry stakeholders, including gift card program managers, retailers, secondary exchange sites, third party resellers, technology companies that leverage gift cards and egifts, processors, manufacturers and distributors.

The RGCA Forum will be a content-rich, interactive event that includes in-depth discussions on fraud, merchandising, secondary markets, digital platforms, holiday trends, regulatory issues and other timely topics surrounding closed-loop gift cards. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend educational sessions, network with seasoned industry professionals and participate in roundtables.

“Before Forum, the subject of closed-loop gift cards was relegated to a minor track or single session at larger payments or retail shows. Now, closed-loop gift card industry stakeholders can participate in an event solely focused on this specific industry,” said Colleen Dorwart, RGCA board of directors chair. “By opening the event to a variety of industry stakeholders, we are providing an inclusive, interactive opportunity for experts to share their insights, research, best practices and more with each other—helping us all stay abreast of existing challenges, identify emerging trends and maximizing the success of the closed-loop gift card industry as a whole.”
