The mobile money industry in Latin America currently sits at an exciting tipping point.

This coupled with rapidly rising smartphone penetration rates and the introduction of new services and solutions enabled by the adoption of mobile connectivity, Latin America is poised for mobile payments success. The Mobile Payments Latin America 2014 Summit will showcase exclusive case studies from across the mobile money value chain to reveal how to realize this potential by creating scalable solutions that range from financial inclusion services to seamless mCommerce experiences.

Mobile Payments Latin America 2014 Summit, project director, Ina Vaduvescu stated, “The mobile money industry in Latin America currently sits at an exciting tipping point. With a cash driven economy, a vast population unserved by formal financial services and high rates of mobile phone adoption, all the ingredients are there for success.” She continued, “This is the event where the industry will come together to debate how to overcome the infrastructural barriers, including poor network coverage and a lack of standardization that stand in the way of creating an interoperable and reliable mobile money platform in Latin America.”
