Weve and PayPal are among the top speakers confirmed for Mobile Payments and Value Added Services, Europe’s biggest mobile payments event, taking place 23-24 April, London. This event looks to unite attendees from major banks, MNOs, payment providers and retailers, in order to debate and discuss how the evolution of mobile technology can be used to cash in on the payments sector.

Juniper Research predicts global mobile payment transactions will be worth $1.3 trillion over the next five years. The number of people buying physical goods remotely via their mobile handsets is expected to increase by nearly 50% between now and 2015 while 78% of POS terminals in Europe are forecasted to be NFC-enabled by 2017.

In light of this, many companies are changing their strategies in order exploit the growing adoption of mobile payments. However, the growth in opportunity has also led to the rapid rise in the development differing of payment technologies, and plethora of solutions on the market.  Mobile Payments and Value Added Services will provide a forum to compare these payment solutions and help companies’ assess the benefits of value added services to their consumers.

The agenda is set to answer the critical questions facing mobile payment professionals today; how banks can preserve their place in the payments value chain; in what way payments can generate additional revenue streams for MNOs; what opportunities exist for the Mobile Wallet; whether one payments solution win out, or is there room for  Cloud Payments, NFC and the rest? Speakers confirmed to speak so far include PayPal, Tesco, Visa, EE, and BNP Paribas among many others.  With attendees from Best Buy, American Express, John Lewis and more

Event Director, Aoife Gaffney, VP Payments at M For Mobile, outlined what the conference would provide in a recent interview.  “After many years of talking about NFC, we have now seen a variety of other solutions explode onto the scene, using a range of technologies, all competing to reach mass consumer adoption. With forecasts for the payments industry in the billions, in order to profit and remain competitive, it is crucial that companies forge the right partnerships and keep themselves informed to stay ahead of the curve –  that is what Mobile Payments and Value Added Services will allow them to do.’”
