Palo Alto, CA
The BayPay Forum and Consult Hyperion are pleased to announce the fall Tomorrow's Transactions Unconference 2013, to be held on Friday October 4th in Silicon Valley.
This event will mix stimulating talks from experts with global perspectives and discussion sessions on topics chosen by the delegates themselves on the day. We expect the topics to be covered to include the mobile "wallet wars", migration to chip cards in the US, alternative and parallel currencies, "near banking" and much more.
Once registered, delegates are free to join in any, all or none of the discussions. The points raised in the discussions will be captured and reported.
Registration details will be announced shortly along with the names of the event sponsors. All delegates will get a complimentary copy of "The Tomorrow's Transactions Reader 2013" by David Birch in either physical or electronic form as they choose, as well as a copy of David Wolman’s book, "The End of Money: Counterfeiters, Preachers, Techies, Dreamers--and the Coming Cashless Society ".
Please note that this event is a full day event.
Planned Schedule for the day
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.
BayPay Is a joint initiative of Glenbrook, Edgar Dunn & Company and Daniel Chatelain from QSecure, Inc. that is open to other companies or individuals contributions.
