We are extremely proud to bring together the key players in the mobile banking and payments ecosystem together in NYC this October to explore the disruption and opportunities new mobile tech will bring.

As consumers adopt mobile technology in all aspects of their lives, the expectations placed on traditional industries to develop mobile solutions has never been greater. Many financial institutions have already placed a heavy focus on mobile technology, both consumer facing and B2B, but conversely, most are trailing behind consumer expectations. The Mobile Banking and Payments Summit will focus on the crucial disruptions and developments in mobile money.

“Many firms are now feeling the pain as the modern consumer parts ways with traditional communication channels and moves to focus on mobile interactions. We’ve seen this with printed media and many other industries, and now we are seeing it within the financial industry.” Stated Gavin Watson, Mobile Banking Project Director at Open Mobile Media, “We are extremely proud to bring together the key players in the mobile banking and payments ecosystem together in NYC this October to explore the disruption and opportunities new mobile tech will bring."
