The Electronic Transactions Association announced on Wednesday that the TRANSACT 14 conference—the largest payments industry event in the world—will feature a mobile and technology educational program sponsored by PayPal.
The Mobile & Technology track is just one of seven educational programs offered at the conference this year, which will be held April 8-10 in Las Vegas.
“TRANSACT 14 is the only place where payments veterans and newcomers alike have access to seven distinct conference tracks, providing them with the insight to meet industry evolution and consumer demand,” ETA CEO Jason Oxman said. “Mobile transactions will represent 30 percent of all retail by 2018, so the importance of a dedicated Mobile and Technology educational track can’t be understated. The industry expertise provided will be an invaluable resource for companies that are interested in participating —or are already active—in this dynamic space.”
As part of the educational program, industry experts will discuss new business models and the latest developments in mobile payments, including mobile commerce, monetization, security, NFC, mobile banking and emerging technologies, and how the developments affect key industry players.
The Mobile & Technology track will include a keynote address from PayPal North America Vice President of Retail Brad Brodigan.
“PayPal is a proud sponsor of TRANSACT 14,” ETA board member and PayPal Vice President and General Manager of Retail and Prepaid Don Kingsborough said. “We are excited about our mobile payments ventures and are pleased to contribute to growing the knowledge of professionals interested in this innovative field.”
Approximately 4,000 industry players from 1,000 firms representing 24 countries are expected to attend the conference. The conference will offer three full days of programming, ending with the TRANSACT Party at the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay.
