CommerceGate Reports Strong Start to 2013

BARCELONA — CommerceGate, a leading IPSP and global billing solutions provider, announced that its year is off to an exciting start with award wins and its participation in high-profile industry events.

January kicked off with the XBIZ 360° Digital Media Conference taking place Jan. 9-12 at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles. This show was a great compliment to CommerceGate’s U.S. open house event held in the heart of Santa Monica on Jan. 10. Guests of the event were treated to appetizers, drinks, and quality one-on-one time with the CommereceGate team. The open house provided a unique opportunity for discussion about upcoming challenges in 2013 and how CommerceGate works with clients to adapt to their growing needs and support their ongoing success in the coming year.

CommerceGate also celebrated a win at the XBIZ Awards on Jan. 11 as it was awarded European Billing Company of the Year for the second year running.

“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our CommerceGate U.S. offices at the open house held during the XBIZ 360° show, and we were truly honored to be chosen again to receive an XBIZ award,” said CommerceGate CEO Bjorn Skarlen. “We work very hard each year to provide the best service and highest level of technology, and it means a lot to be recognized by our industry peers.”

The CommerceGate team then headed to Las Vegas for Internext Expo, taking place at Hard Rock Hotel Jan. 13-15, when it sponsored the CEO dinner.

After the Internext Expo, the CommerceGate U.S. team showcased their advanced merchant solutions and U.S. and EU IPSP services to the attendees of the Adult Entertainment Expo Jan. 17-19 at the Hard Rock Hotel. As a first time exhibitor of AEE, CommerceGate received overwhelming feedback from merchants that were in need of advanced processing solutions.

While at the many adult shows in Vegas, CommerceGate also participated in the mainstream iDate and Affiliate Summit shows. “This has been a great tradeshow month for our U.S. team," Skarlen continued. "Seeing so many old friends and colleagues, building new partnerships and having the opportunity to do face-to-face business is so important to kicking off the new year on the right foot.

"Our priority as a member of this community is to support the industry in any way we can. Seeing the success of these shows and the important business done tells us that the industry is thriving and we couldn’t be happier about it.”
