Money 20/20 will be traveling to Las Vegas on November 6 for a four-day conference at Aria Hotel and Casino. The conference, known as “the world’s largest and best for innovators in payments and financial services”, will host more than 7,000 attendees representing over 2,250 companies from more than 60 different countries. There will be approximately 500 speakers gathered to discuss emerging trends in innovation as they relate to the manner in which consumers and businesses manage, spend, and borrow money.
Money 20/20’s thought leaders will analyze topics such as the rise of non-banks, the growth of digital banking, new value chains, and real-time payments. This year’s conference comes at a particularly exciting time for the payment industry following in the wake of credit card breaches recently confirmed at Home Depot, Target, and Goodwill among other major retailers.
A few of the industry experts scheduled to lead the conference also serve as mentors to Plug and Play’s accelerators:
David A. Johnston Board Member, Mastercoin Foundation and Managing Director, BitAngels
Roger Ver Investor, Blockchain
Brock Pierce Co-Founder, GoCoin
