WHAT TO EXPECT IN MAY 2020
The ATM Industry continues to show great resilience as the reality of life in a pandemic sets in. ATMIA has been working hard to ensure the industry remains strong during these testing times, advancing the benefits of cash and promoting the importance of ATMs in a balanced and reliable payments system.
We have contacted the Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, alongside all his State and Territory counterparts to address the anti-cash message entering into official medical advice. In our message, we emphasised that the costs of the advice to use tap and go technology greatly outweigh the marginal, and scientifically unproven benefits.
We have also been working to gain momentum in favour of cash use in partnership with other assosciations. The Australasian Convenience Stores Association and C&I Retail Magazine have agreed to run ATMIA’s media statement regarding the use of cash during the pandemic, and we look forward to co-operating with many more organisations to ensure the truth reaches the community: cash is a safe and secure payment method!
The next step of our campaign during this pandemic will be to contact major Australian retail companies to impress upon them the importance of cash. As we have done previously, we will emphasise a lack of scientific evidence supporting the idea that cash is more dangerous than card, and highlight the many disadvantages that will follow if cash is banned from their business as a payment method.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Sydney event is rescheduled:
Next Gen ATMs and Payments conference will now be held on 9th/10th December
This event will provide industry stakeholders the opportunity to harness unique strengths, addressing the challenges and opportunities of our rapidly changing industry. It's only through harnessing innovation and continuing to address evolving industry issues can the industry continue to thrive.
