This issue is our last of 2023—a year in which we published more than 370 pages of award-winning news and data. This is a significant increase, and we did it by adding an average of 1 additional page of content with every issue.

Delivering on our promise of best-in-class business intelligence for the payment card industry is just one of our values. Another is that we take this time of year to step back and enjoy our family, friends and colleagues. We wish you the joy of connecting with those you treasure most and look forward to seeing you again in the new year.
