Networld Media Group announces its first-ever Virtual Currency Today Summit. This meeting of the minds among high-level industry executives will convene on April 29, 2015, at Boston’s Back Bay Hilton and will be produced collaboratively by the editorial teams at Networld’s MobilePaymentsToday.com, RetailCustomerExperience.com and ATMmarketplace.com. The Summit will explore:
- When, why and how digital currency will go mainstream
- Privacy, security, fraud and other potential concerns
- How regulators will respond
- Impacts on payment, retail and other affected industries
- The practical mechanics of merchant acceptance
Networld Media Group expects attendees to join the Summit from across payment solutions, cash networks & exchanges, financial services, restaurants and retail industries. Innovators in virtual-currency solutions and services, customer-experience professionals, industry analysts, and regulatory authorities will also be well represented at the Summit.
Renowned economic strategist Bruce Fenton, Managing Director of Atlantic Financial and Editor of the FentonReport: Globalization and Wealth Management News, has already been confirmed as a featured Summit speaker. Prior to founding Atlantic Financial, Fenton worked for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter. He has been a guest on Bloomberg Radio and has been quoted in The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Investor’s Business Daily, Fortune and Bloomberg.
“Virtual currency is the next disruptive force to hit payments, banking, financial markets, retail and so many other industries,” observed Kathy Doyle, EVP and publisher of Networld Media Group. “We’ve structured our Virtual Currency Today Summit to help executives facilitate fast, low-risk absorption and integration of virtual currency into their businesses.”
“The Virtual Currency Today Summit advances our strategy of building an end-to-end payment-media division,” said Networld’s CEO, Tom Harper. “ATMmarketplace.com has covered the cash end of the payment spectrum since 1997. A few years ago, we added MobilePaymentsToday.com and more recently launched our ATM & Mobile Innovation Summit. When virtual currency burst onto the world’s payment scene, we knew it was time for another addition to our media portfolio. The interplay among cash, mobile and virtual currency is evolving faster than anyone predicted. We are thrilled to be jumping into the chaotic world of virtual currency alongside so many other thinkers and innovators.”
