2011 FStech/Retail Systems Payments Technology Conference


We are currently witnessing a number of important cards and payments developments, all of which are demanding a huge amount of attention in the retailer and financial sector communities. Taking place on Thursday, 10 November at The IoD Hub in London, the 2011 FStech/Retail Systems Payments Technology Conference will bring together leading figures from retail and the financial services sector to network and discuss these developments via presentations and discussion panels.

Retail Systems is the leading title in the UK retail technology sector and FStech is the leading audited business title for financial IT decision makers. This unique conference will see these two market leading publications join forces to provide a dedicated showcase of key issues and challenges and how cards and payments innovation can address them. It will offer the retailer/merchant/financial sector community the opportunity to engage with this rapidly changing area in the most effective and time efficient manner.

Key topics to be explored

Mobile payments/NFC
PCI and payment security
E-commerce payments
Payment innovation

Highlights of the day include:

Cash Vs Card interactive panel discussion
Millions of contactless cards are now in circulation in the UK and, as retailers like McDonald’s come onboard, progress is definitely being made. But there is still some way to go to make this technology mainstream. In the meantime, cash continues to thrive, undermining all those ‘cashless society’ predictions. This panel discussion will look at the contactless revolution alongside the continued role that cash has to be play.

NFC & M-payments panel discussion
This discussion panel will look at the latest mobile payments developments and the challenges facing banks and retailers as the m-payments/NFC bandwagon rolls. Citibank, Visa and Google's Google Wallet have introduced the world to wave-and-pay systems using NFC. But are we at a tipping point? Are consumers ready to embrace this way of paying or is it a case of “all hype, no substance”?

You will have the opportunity to learn:

• The role payments technology can play in business success
• The relevance of cash vs cards
• How you can retain PCI compliance at the dawn of the mobile and contactless era
• The future of cards and payments
• The development and delivery of innovative payment and the wider role of the EPC
• M-Payments collaboration and the wider eco-system
• Cards and payments fraud prevention

Companies speaking on the day include:

Best Buy Europe and Carphone Warehouse Group
Clinton Cards 
eWise Payo
IDC Insights
Lloyds TSB Cardnet
Payments Council
PCI Security Standards Council
Telefonica UK Limited

We look forward to meeting you on the day for what will be a thought provoking and highly topical event.
