Conference Tracks:

MOBILE PAYMENTS & WALLETS

This has now led to a true battle of titans between the web giants (Amazon, Alibaba, Google, Facebook,...), the international card schemes (Visa Checkout, MasterPass), the big retailers (Walmart Pay, Starbucks, Flash’NPay...), the banks (Chase Pay, Paylib ...), the smartphone manufacturers (Apple, Samsung, ...), the telecom operators (Vodafone, Orange, Telefonica, MTN ...) and a myriad of start-up. Who will win the battle?

Smart border mechanism, critical infrastructures protections, legal and forensic investigations are also in the scope.

It is progressing at international scale and supported by a wide range of methodologies and technologies.

IoT & CONNECTED COMMERCE

Gartner is predicting 20.8 billion connected things by 2020. Some industry reports predict up to 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Payment capabilities being added to connected objects, this is the advent of connected commerce powered by IoT. What is the current status of IoT and payments? How can payments develop further the IoT ecosystem?

SECURING THE IoT

After healthcare, energy, utilities, smart cities or agriculture, IoT is growing in automotive, retail, banking, consumer services and home automation and will not stop there. Connected cars are the buzz of this year. In this context, securing the IoT is becoming a key challenge for many businesses and administrations.

PayTech DISRUPTION

PayTech are the pioneer when it comes to Fintech disruption and remain, over the years, the most developed Fintech sector. Every day, we see a new startup or an established corporate launch a new offer. In this track, both the disrupting newcomers and incumbents will share their vision of the future.

EID & E-GOVERMENTS

This session will look into lessons learnt from «digital by default» in administration policies, implementation of international identity schemes, progression with effective trust services, private-public interoperability, services personalization with citizen cards and mobile identity, and e-gov practices from social inclusion or shared economy transparency to improved control in migration flow management.

OPEN INNOVATION: FROM BLOCKCHAIN TO OPEN API

With innovation and new technologies in the world of payment and Fintech, it is harder and harder to keep track of real changes vs buzz. This track will try to bring clarity and separate myths from reality with topics ranging from distributed ledger, Blockchain, Open API, Open ID, Real-Time P2P. By exploring individual initiatives to group efforts (consortia) and regulatory oversight, getting concrete answers will be the goal to understand the future.

AL IN PAYMENTS & FinTech

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is all the buzz this year. More recently, some Fintech (e.g. Wealthfront, Venmo) have been adding AI capabilities to enhance their services.

COMMERCE & PAYMENTS

Retail business is facing multiple upheavals: e- and m-commerce, social networks, private sales, market places, sharing economy, CtoC, digitalization of outlets, cross-channel, self-check-out, mobile POS …

REGULATORY CHALLENGES & PSD2

The succession of European directives, the decisions by competition authorities and central governments are making the payments landscape more homogeneous and more competitive.
This track will dive into the latest regulatory enhancements and will help you gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities they represent.

NEO-BANKS

Many banks have chosen to partner with Neo-Banks, using their services to enhance their offer. Recently, we have seen some first acquisitions of Neo-Banks by traditional large banks (e.g. BPCE & Fidor Bank). But the disruption is not coming just from Fintech but from web giants and telecom operators (e.g. Orange Bank) too. Who will win the battle?
