CO-OP's GAC Booth Will Tell Payments History
CO-OP Financial Services announced Wednesday it will use its exhibition space at CUNA’s Government Affairs Conference to tell the world history of payment systems, from bartering in ancient cultures to today’s online payments.
“There has never been an exhibit like it at a credit union trade show, both in its scale and its innovative industry and corporate storytelling,” said Stan Hollen, president/CEO. “CO-OP’s business lines specifically address the need of credit unions to enable their members to make payments conveniently and safely – the two key engines of historical innovation.”
The exhibit, entitled “Evolution is Inevitable: The Search for Convenience and Safety in Payments,” will include art, video and text. It will illustrate the long history of payments is a story of constant change driven by the need to make it easy to pay for things, and to make that transaction free of the fear of fraud, CO-OP said in the release.
GAC exhibit hall hours are scheduled from Sunday, Feb. 23 through Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, at the Washington Convention Center.
