More than 800 professionals with a stake in the payments ecosystem converged on Las Vegas, NV this year for APEX 2015—the All Payments Expo—to network and get up to speed on the latest in payments innovation and developments in prepaid, alternative financial services, retail and technology.
We on the APEX team are now pleased to present the official 2015 executive summary, an exclusive report featuring key insights and analysis from APEX, along with detailed coverage of specific presentations and panels from the conference.
› The future of payments will be device, platform and location-agnostic. Retailers are scrambling to wrap their brains around the options, but the nature of POS transactions will most definitely change dramatically in just the next couple of years as mobile technologies bundle POS, marketing, shopping, customer engagement and data collection seamlessly.
› Cryptocurrencies may reach an adoption tipping point sooner than expected and with a profound impact on multiple financial service categories and industries, most notably by driving a low-to-no-cost peer-to-peer payments revolution.
› Competition to capture the patronage of the massive un- and under-banked populations of the world (including those in wealthy First World markets) will occupy the attention of established players and start-ups alike as technology knocks down barriers to access.
The saying goes, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Luckily that does not hold true for APEX 2015! Download the executive summary now to learn more and see what the buzz was about.
