RGCA Forum

The RGCA Forum is a content-rich, interactive event that explores the issues and trends impacting the closed-loop gift card industry. Distinguished retail and payments executives will deliver in-depth keynotes and sessions focusing on the evolution, uses, and hot topics surrounding gift cars as forms of branded currency, incentives, marketing tools, and more.

Forum typically takes place in late-September or early-October. Members and non-members are encouraged to attend, though RGCA members will receive a $600 discount per person on registration.
