(MENAFN Press) Amman, May 2014 - Middle East Payment Services (MEPS) - a leading, innovative payment services provider in the Levant - has participated as sliver sponsor at 'Cards & Payments Middle East 2014', the Middle East's largest smartcard, payments and ID event, which was held in Dubai, UAE. Drawing the participation of over 5,000 attendees and more than 200 exhibitors from across the region, 'Cards & Payments Middle East 2014' hosted approximately 100 VIPs from regional banks, 300 buyer meetings and 80 conference sessions.

During the first day of the event, MEPS Chairman Dr. Abdul Malik Jaber delivered a keynote speech on e-Commerce opportunities in the region, presenting statistics and trends, as well as discussed methods to reduce cash-on-delivery payments.

MEPS' involvement in the event was remarkably successful, both in terms of the extent of participation and the number of visitors to the Company's booth.

"Our participation in 'Cards & Payments Middle East 2014' emphasizes our standing as a key player within the Arab World's e-payments market, and corresponds with the pioneering vision of MEPS' Board of Directors and partners. Having strategic partners such as Burgan Bank Kuwait, Burgan Bank Turkey, the Housing Bank for Trade and Finance, Jordan Islamic Bank and Jordan Ahli Bank, and others, also helps further cement MEPS' leading position among service providers across the Middle East and North Africa region," commented Dr. Jaber.
