BRUSSELS, 10 April 2015 – WSBI’s Innovation in Payments Conference, held in partnership with CaixaBank, will take place on 13–14 April in Barcelona. Discussions at the event will focus on how retail and savings banks can benefit from a new era of innovation in payments.
New players and products, consumer demands, global trends, and regulatory changes are disrupting the traditional banking business model. Banks now need to innovate to ensure they benefit from these changes and prosper in the digital age.
This makes it imperative that banks develop and digitalise the way they operate and the products and services they offer. Payments is an essential area in this regard. WSBI’s Innovation in Payments conference will provide in-depth insight into the payments space, presenting cutting-edge digital technologies, innovative products and services, and a "re-invented" banking scene.
Specific topics include: the transition to a cashless society; P2P payments and mobile wallets; mobile banking; new value-added services to SMEs; new entrants and competitors entering the banking system; the potential to collaborative and partner with new players; big data; and creativity and innovation.
