Mobile payments are predicted to have a bright future as m-commerce becomes more popular. With financial services representing over a quarter of the FTSE 100, there is no denying the sheer size of this opportunity. Furthermore, with finances playing an ever-increasing role in many forms of mobile content consumption, including mobile ticketing, mobile vouchers and loyalty cards, content purchase and payment methods, LBS, and auctions, there has never been a better time to apply your technology. In addition, mobile contactless payments offer speed and convenience, and are predicted to make up 10% of the contactless market by 2010. However, this promising application has not been as successful as anticipated. This can be partially explained by the infancy of the market and a lack of standards. Moreover, technological and business issues create a market uncertainty that mobile network operators and financial institutions have difficulties managing.

In tough economic times new technology has an important role to play in improving efficiencies and helping improve the bottom line. Utilising on-the-ground research and first-hand interviews with m-payments executives and experts, Visiongain’s mobile payments conference will examine competing service models, profile leading m-payment companies, and dissect the complex set of factors at play in the sector's development. It will also bring together banks, systems vendors, consultancies, systems integrators and security assessors to highlight the range of solutions that are available to meet the current retailer demand for innovative solutions.
