"Alternative Payment Systems Innovations 2011 - 2nd Edition "
After the success of this year's partnership with Strategic Solutions Network (SSN), The BayPay Forum is pleased to announce a special opportunity for BayPay Members to attend a valuable alternative payments conference in the San Francisco Bay Area in March 2011 at a significantly reduced rate.
Strategic Solutions Network (SSN) is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Alternative Payment Systems Innovations Forum, Capitalizing on the Exploding Mobile Payments Revolution, scheduled for March 29-30, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco, CA.
The conference will build upon the success of last year’s inaugural event APSI 2010 which brought together over 100+ senior executives representing merchants, payment processors, telecom carriers, developers and solution providers for two days of intense debate, discussion and implementation sessions. Attendees were virtually unanimous in their belief that:
• In an emerging culture of convenience, virtual payment systems outside of traditional
banking structures have added a new dimension to financial transactions.
• Loyalty programs combined with integrated couponing will drive consumer adoption.
• Merchants should have a voice in the payment “revolution”, where there is a
growing consumer demand for innovative technology and convenience.
The 2nd Annual Alternative Payment Systems Innovations Forum, through engaging panels and case studies APSI 2011 will enable a cross section of stakeholders from all facets of the emerging contactless/ mobile payments arena to explore technology, strategies and attainable solutions to help executives successfully navigate and capitalize on this exploding market.

When & Where
The BayPay Forum
If you are a member of the payment industry, you are invited to join BayPay, a networking group of the Silicon Valley focused on payments and composed exclusively of members in the payment community or investors in this area. If you are not yet a member and would like to join, reply to this email to get your free membership with a quick description on how you fit in the payment industry. Even after all these years, the payments industry is still expanding in both mature and emerging markets worldwide as the industry adapts to new market opportunities. New technologies including contactless cards, cell phone integration, biometrics, RFID and strong authentication are emerging and potentially creating new challenges for both financial institutions and their customers. Prepaid cards, gift cards, new forms of payment like PayPal, are all vivid demonstrations of the vibrancy of new thinking in the payments industry. With wireless ubiquity now essentially a reality, transaction aggregation and micro payments become a necessity. As the financial industry and merchants provide more and more services online, phishing emerges as a problem that requires more education and communication with consumers.
Objective BayPay's primary goal is to provide a face-to-face professional networking forum for the regular exchange of views on these issues among active professionals within the payments industry who are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. An online BayPay group on Yahoo! provides opportunities for members to interact among themselves between regular face-to-face meetings.
