EMV and Mobile Lead the Next Wave of Payments Solutions

Innovative payments solutions are giving consumers more payment choices than ever, from secure EMV contact and contactless chip payments to new mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Android Pay and more. And mobile innovation goes beyond paying – mPOS has become the go-to technology for retailers looking to accept all of these new ways to pay. The Payments Summit is the only place to collaborate with colleagues on how to seize the opportunity to create a more secure, convenient and faster payments world with EMV, mobile and other innovative payments solutions.

Transit Payments Keep Getting Smarter

Nationwide, transit agencies big and small are using mobile technology and payments innovation to make mass transit and parking a lot more efficient and convenient. At the Payments Summit, get all of the newest developments in open, interoperable contactless card and mobile fare collection systems, mobile ticketing initiatives, and the steps federal and state regulators are taking to influence multimodal payments convergence to create a more seamless travel experience for all.

FinTech – Shaping the Future of Payments

According to a report by Statistica, the projected investment by the banking industry on new technology in North America will be $19.9 billion. The leading area of bank spending on financial technologies is on mobile payments. FinTech companies around the world are disrupting traditional banking relationships and processing models and introducing new payment delivery technologies, FinTech is reinventing financial services as we know it, and creating new opportunities for startups and established industry leaders alike.
