MasterCard at #Money2020 – the Future of Connected Commerce

PURCHASE, N.Y. – October 19, 2015 – The digital shift in payments is the biggest change in the industry since the introduction of plastic, and the next five years could see more change than took place in the previous fifty. MasterCard is thinking differently, designing products differently and innovating faster than ever before to make sure every MasterCard account is as digital as the consumers using them around the world. 

Join MasterCard at Money20/20, October 24-28 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, to hear and see how the company is creating safer and richer mobile and digital experiences for consumers who are moving from the offline and disconnected world to being constantly connected.

On Saturday, October 24, MasterCard will be one of nine companies sponsoring the Money20/20 Hackathon. The MasterCard Open API team will be on hand to help participants build real and scalable innovations that reach new sets of customers around the world.
