Money20/20 Event Recap
This past week, the payments and fintech worlds took over Las Vegas’ Venetian Resort for Money20/20. The conference was highlighted by a successful Hackathon, tons of sessions and speakers, a humming trade show floor, and ample networking events. Here are a few of our takeaways from the show.
Walking the floor, one could easily tell what the biggest theme was – SECURITY. Fraud detection, user authentication, and biometrics security owned the trade show floor. Everywhere you turned there was a booth who specialized in in-app authentication or fraud protection. Money20/20 has always been a trend-based conference. When it first launched, Money20/20 was all about digital wallets and mobile payments. Then digital currency and Bitcoins became all the rage. Most recently, advanced analytics, loyalty and marketing were popular themes. But this year’s show, there was a hyper focus on security.
As for iMobile3, the show was a tremendous success. We had wire-to-wire meetings booked across the four-day conference. This show is a great opportunity for us to meet in person with existing clients and network with potential clients. Not to mention, we also had a nice little mention in one of the biggest announcements made during the conference. Verifone’s and Vantiv’s co-exhibition of the SmartFit Solution on Carbon was a major success. We are happy to be part of that tremendous project.
