Following on from the success of the 2011 conference, Contactless Cards & Payments is returning to London for it’s 10th annual conference on 20th & 21st June 2012.
A new report by Forrester suggested Britain will be a cashless society by 2016.
Contactless Cards and Payments 2012 covers a variety of technologies, from NFC to mobile payments and banking. This conference is an update on the newest technologies to be developed, case studies of successful schemes and a look at the risks involved from a fraud perspective. With developing technologies comes new regulation, and this event will also look at the regulatory bodies and how they are approaching the potential risks and prevention strategies they intend to apply.
With the conference taking place a month before the London 2012 Olympics – this is a good opportunity to gain an insight into the role contactless cards play in major events. As the leading banks have a big role in contactless, the question most people are asking is what role the big technology leaders such as Apple and Google will play in securing their position in this rapidly growing market.
Although a tremendous amount has been achieved in contactless cards, the question still remains as to why there is a slow response and attitude from consumers towards this ever evolving concept.
SMi's two day conference has been carefully designed to bring you 18 successful case studies and interactive panel discussions, this is the only event that will give you answers and experiences you need to gain a better insight into the contactless cards market.
Key topics to be discussed:
NFC: recent developments in mobile payments
E-wallets: are we ready for a cashless society?
The European market: hear from leaders in the Turkish and Spanish markets
Retail: hear from leading retailers including stadiums and vending machines
Apple and Google: what will they do?
