Introducing the Inaugural Digital Money Summit

10 Aug 2011, by Informa Insights

The Digital Money Summit will explore the existing pros and cons for Australia developing its contactless payment methods, as successfully deployed in examples around the globe. Sessions will be heard from the major players involved in adopting this new technology – hear banks discuss their strategies to utlise market share, hear telecoms talk about the new opportunities available through mobile networks, hear retailers discuss the benefits of fast, efficient payments to the merchant and customers, and hear the hardware manufacturers talk about how this technology works.

Technology is paving the way for revolution. In terms of money, this is no different. As personal technologies become more tecnological, we can now use it it different ways. Whereas once upon a time the cheque was revoluntionary, the credit card has taken over. In the past we would write letters and drop them in letter boxes. Now we write email. Now we are seeing money being used in a digital format. Society is becoming increasingly cashless, and technology is allowing us to make transactions quicker and easier than before.
