The 2013 Contactless Intelligence Spring Conference and Contactless & Mobile Awards Dinner

09.20  – 09.30 Welcome: Steve Atkins – CEO Krowne Communications

Chairman: Ram Banerjee, Transaxiom

09.30  – 10.00 Keynote: State of the Mobile Nation

Trillions. Billions. Millions. Research numbers are going through the roof with predictions on transactions, subscribers, merchants and portals, both for contactless and NFC. In this year’s keynote we hope to cut through the numbers chaos to give you an up-to-date assessment of where the contactless and mobile industry stands. Let’s hear from an analyst and a major industry player how far we have come and what trends, technologies and strategies will determine the direction of the upcoming months.


Mobile Wallets: who will be the winners?  EdgarDunn, Samee Zafar – Director

Contactless & Digital Payments evolution  Barclaycard, John Conlon – Head of Future Propositions, Digital Payments

10.00 – 11.00 Green with envy – saving money as well as the planet one mobile transaction at a time?

The impact of the card industry on the environment is immense. Silicon, electronics, plastic, paper receipts create waste and are hard to recycle costing both this and coming generations of card carrying consumers money and natural resources. This has, of course, not gone unnoticed by the industry and innovation teams throughout the value chain are being put under pressure by  major brands’ corporate social responsibility targets and cost saving initiatives. In this session we look at best cases, corporate social responsibility policies, ask about the best transit offers and explore innovations that save us all money as well as the planet.

11.00  – 11.30 Networking Coffee sponsored by Proxama 

11.30 – 12.45  Mobile technology – Business, brands and buying behaviour 

Innovative mobile payment and tap-and-go NFC technology offer consumers the possibility to shop from anywhere. From a smart poster at the bus stop, to a label on a coffee cup, to a tag on a counter at a local grocer. The ability to tag and label products allows for the connection of realtime inventory information to retail distribution and purchase occasions, thus creating a new data point for collection, which provides consumer-driven business intelligence. So called ‘social payment’, based on swipe dongle solutions, enables small businesses not only to take credit cards but also to push coupons and other specials to engage with their customer base. In this session, we look at the latest developments in this fast moving space.
