Programme - Welcome address by key note speaker Mr. Pedro Manuel Gouveia, superintendent of the Portuguese police.
The main topic of the program is crisis and disaster management, which is to be discussed for the first time in the industry. Speakers will look at lessons learned from dramatic events such as the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 and the solutions put in place by the New Zealand reserve to ensure that each citizen could have access to cash when no other means of payment.

 The Cascais conference will highlight the key role played by the private sector and particularly the cash industry in crisis and disaster management. There is a real business model to develop and new land to conquer. The banking industry is already there and many institutions have invested in this area – is it too late for the cash industry to mark its footprint?
Key to crisis and disaster management is preparedness: how is the industry preparing, what are the contingency/business continuity plans, if any, put in place to ensure that citizens and consumer can access their cash at any time?                        Click here to read the detailed conference programme
