the challenge

To create two, simultaneous, events for invited leaders within the payment industry to unveil the Global launch of the next generation of ACI’s consumer payments solution, UP BASE24-eps.


the solution

We worked with ACI to design, plan and execute their events, which marked a big day in the European payments industry as they unveiled their solution for helping to make commerce easier. We united industry leaders and created events in two incredible locations: London, at the St Martins Lane Hotel and Times Square in New York City.




“The event was seamless in design, planning and execution and has since become a highlight of ACI Worldwide events calendar. We work with emc3 on events ranging from small ones such as this up to 18,000+ multi-day conferences and they always maintain the same exacting standards of execution and client focussed service.”​ —Claudio Gutierrez, President of CG Creative

the result

Phil Heasley, ACI Worldwide’s CEO featured as a speaker and Forbes Media CEO Steve Forbes headlined, with the event coinciding with Phil ringing the NASDAQ opening bell. The event was a success and gained publicity worldwide, with their annual report stating that, following the launch of UP BASE24-eps, “Industry response has been impressive; we are seeing customer use cases beyond our original expectations.”
