The way consumers pay for goods may be turning a corner, as contactless payment usage in the UK has increased by four percentage points to 12 per cent in the past four months, according to a study by ICM Research. The study, which was first conducted in November 2012 and repeated last month, finds that of those who have made contactless payments, 9 per cent say they make them every day, compared with 5 per cent last November, while 28 per cent make them most days, up from 12 per cent in November. Almost half of those who use the technology say they would be more likely to shop in places that offered contactless payment.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s Contactless Payments conference examines themes including themes influencing contactless technology progress such as:

  • The Changing Face of Transport Payments
  • Emerging Payments - the impact these will have on the market
  • Mobile Payments
  • Contactless - not just on the high street
  • Use of contactless at large-scale events

Expert Speakers include:

  • Neil Lover, Head of Business Operations, O2 Money Telefónica UK Limited
  • Matt Blanks, Senior Manager - Transformation Strategy, Transport for London
