ITEXPO Announces New Show Aimed At The Mobile Commerce Industry
Collocated with ITEXPO, new show highlights mobile commerce solutions
TMC and Mobile Marketing & Technology recently announced that the Mobile Payments Conference will be held January 28-31, 2014, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida. The event will highlight the many new mobile commerce solutions that continue to enter the market, and will be an invaluable resource for companies that are looking at—or are already active—in participating in this dynamic space.
“I am excited to have this year’s conference co-located with the ITEXPO,” said Marla Ellerman, publisher of Mobile Marketing & Technology, Executive Director of Mobile Payment Conference, “Attendees of both conferences will be able to enjoy many synergies in two days at a tremendous location.
As mobile device usage continues to grow drastically, so has the capability of retail and payments on these devices. Mobile wallets, NFC technologies and QR codes are all becoming vital parts of business strategies for retailers and financial services providers. Attendees at Mobile Payments Conference will hear presentations based on the recent move for consumers and businesses to utilize mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, as a way for business. Designed to be a priceless source for companies looking at entering this rapidly growing space, the conference will also be holding EMV Training on Tuesday, January 28, 2014.
“Times are changing in terms of how consumers are accessing bank accounts, paying bills and even shopping online,” said Dave Rodriguez, TMC President. “With the evolution from laptops to smartphones, it will be a great opportunity for attendees to see how mobile devices are currently being used and what new advancements are continuing to be developed.”
