Virtual Event

Merchant Advisory Group (MAG) 2021 Mid-Year Payments Conference and Tech Forum

Date: February 10-25, 2021


On February 10-25, we virtually attended the Merchant Advisory Group (MAG) 2021 Mid-Year  Conference and Tech Forum. The MAG is the leading US association for merchants to discuss payments related issues. We were excited to return as sponsors to the MAG as we explore merchants’ growth strategies in a radically changing global payments ecosystem. In this rapidly evolving industry, all players must quickly find their footing to remain competitive. 

Oliver Wyman journeys alongside our clients each step of the way from strategy to implementation, and as a result, our engagements have helped realize high-impact breakthroughs for value that deliver lower costs, greater growth, and improved performance at scale. Our deep industry expertise and a focus on excellence make our consulting teams extraordinarily effective.
