Payments in a Mobile World

Wednesday, October 16, 2019
at the offices of Deloitte
30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112


Our world is becoming more and more mobile—communications, shopping, work is all being done from mobile devices; today a phone, maybe a watch; soon something else wearable and the vehicle you ride in. How can payment providers create value and find opportunities in this world?

Leading retailers and technology companies have set a high bar—consumers are used to seamless payments for most daily transactions. Consumers will expect an integrated, private, and secure way to pay when engaging with the evolving mobility ecosystem that moves them and their goods about—whether for a bike rental, a taxi ride, a package pickup, or a food delivery.

Join NYPAY for drinks and discussion of a topic that grows ever more important. We’ll look at how payment providers are navigating the changes, leveraging current technology and expertise, and partnering with mobility companies.
