Conference Documentation: Nordic Card Markets and Future Payment Solutions

The Nordic economies have recovered well after the financial meltdown, with the Nordic card and payments markets ranking amongst the world’s most developed. However, it is still very much in a state of transformation; with the threat of increasing competition from new technologies and tighter regulatory reforms the region must take an in depth look at the both the changing face of their payment systems and their innovation pipeline.

Building on the success of the 2014 event, the 14th Annual Nordic Markets and Future Payments Solutions Conference, Monday 19th – Tuesday 20th January, 2015, Copenhagen, will examine how the industry is being forced to ‘reinvent’ themselves in response to impeding regulatory requirements - (SEPA and MIF caps), security measures and importantly the increase in the demand for immediate payment systems particularly the adoption of mobile and near field communication (NFC) systems.

With a focused look at how the various systems can work in unison and complement one another, this exciting event, packed full of informative sessions will bring together leaders from across the banking, payments and retail sectors. Discussions, presentations, case studies and interactive sessions examining which technological developments are impacting the cards and payments sectors, plus provision of real time solutions and examples of how these technologies can work in the industry means that you do not want to miss this event!

Key topics include:

Preparing for a changing regulatory environment
Mobile and NFC systems, the power and the potential
International outlook - what developments are taking place beyond the region
Implementing measures to increase security within the payments system
Looking ahead at technologies for the futures

For a full line up of presentations and speakers join us in Copenhagen!
