Late August, our CFO attended the Prepaid Press Expo at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas. As its name suggests, tppEXPO is a prepaid service conference, both informative and affordable, as its organizers state. The 2014 edition was the most successful one yet, with over 1,800 registered attendees and a sold out exhibit hall.
The two days of the conference covered different areas of discussion. The first day was tppEXPO Prepaid Summit and its motto was `Where prepaid converges`. The topics discussed ranged from banks and prepaid to opportunities in prepaid wireless and customer loyalty.
The second day of the conference was called The Financial Mobility Summit and it was described as the place `where financial services, prepaid and the mobile app converge`. Some of the most interesting presentations were focused on the mobile bank account, anti-fraud mobile payment measures, wireless and the prepaid mobile wallet.
The conference benefited from the presence of speakers representing important business in the field of online payments, such as: American Express, PayPal, MasterCard, or Western Union Digital.
