Networld Media Group’s digital media properties and have announced a unique new collaborative event, the ATM & Mobile Executive Summit 2013.

Prime mover for the event is the rapid concurrent growth in consumer demand for both ATM (cash) and mobile financial services. The conference will focus especially on the state of convergence between the cash and mobile payments industries, exploring how consumers are driving change, which emerging technologies and business models are succeeding and how lawmakers and regulators are likely to respond.

Proposed coverage and discussion topics include:

  • Expert analysis of salient trends in ATM and mobile banking/payments industries.
  • Key convergence points for ATM and mobile payment technologies (success stories/case studies from around the globe).
  • Rising importance of security and cyber-risk management.
  • Comprehensive briefings around imminent legislative/regulatory activity as well as the expected future state for industry regulation.

In the works are plans for direct discussions among banking and payment industry executives and the federal lawmakers and regulators who will ultimately oversee and control their activities in business.

“We are excited to be planning such an interactive – and multilateral – event,” says Joseph Grove, Senior VP with Networld Media Group and Executive Editor for both and “Our primary objective for the ATM & Mobile Executive Summit 2013 is to inspire meaningful dialog among all industry players and interests – discussions that will help to define a clear roadmap (#futureofpayments) for where the ATM and mobile payments industries are now heading, how they will integrate, and what kinds of security and other protections will best serve both businesses and consumers in the quest to deliver the ultimate in banking and payments convenience.”
