And Boston's Seaport district was a fitting backdrop for payments' longest-running regional show. Approximately 90 exhibitors and 575 attendees used the NEAA's mobile app and Twitter hashtag #NEAA16 throughout the event. In its 31st annual conference, the organization furthered its mission to educate and empower merchant acquiring professionals.
