Cryptocurrency Workshop Among New Conference Strands at PayExpo 2015

Cryptocurrency Workshop Among New Conference Strands at PayExpo 2015

A host of new features and products highlighting the latest innovations and developments influencing the future of payments will be revealed at PayExpo 2015, the UK’s largest payments technology event, taking place at ExCeL, London on 9 and 10 June.

Mirroring leading trends and worldwide interest among payments professionals, a Payments Security & Authentication conference stream and Cryptocurrency and Payments workshops have been introduced, making a total of five conference strands and two workshops.

The new Payments Security & Authentication conference will consider the role of biometrics in fraud prevention for merchants, the hype verses reality – whether they are fast, cost-effective and secure and whether they are the final frontier in payments validation and security. Sessions will also discuss how blockchains can help in digital payments security and the future role of digital identity for payments authentication.

The Cryptocurrency workshop reflects the ever increasing debate and activity in the payments sector in digital currency as gradually retailers are beginning to adopt cryptocurrency as a means of payment. It will explain topics such the impact of digital currency on traditional banking and even whether digital currency is really set to disrupt the payments industry to become the preferred channel for the digitally native generation.

The latest innovative start-ups in the rapidly growing UK Fintech sector will be under the spotlight in the new Payments Accelerator zone, sponsored by Neopay. This new feature is specifically designed to showcase the brilliant start-up talent which is re-shaping the payments world.

The migration of payments transactions to public Internet and mobile IP networks brought significant advantages to payment services. It is a new sphere for many operators who seek reassurance about services and security. In response to this, new at PayExpo is the Internet Availability & Security Advice Centre, presented in partnership with IKI, where delegates can put their questions to internet payments transaction experts.

The new Payments Punch Up, organised by the Emerging Payments Association, will be the scene of lively debate on some of the most controversial topics in payments as internationally-recognised thought leaders take opposing sides live on stage. There will be five ‘no-holds barred’ debates over the two days on mobile payment, cryptocurrency, the future of banks, regulation and legislation and wearables.

Zehra Chudry, Head of Content for PayExpo, says: “The future of payments is evolving rapidly so each year PayExpo features many significant new changes and innovations both in the comprehensive conference programme and in the exhibition area. The cutting edge of the payment world will be at PayExpo.”
