May 9 - The 2013 Mobile Banking & Commerce Summit, hosted by American Banker and Bank Technology News, will shine on a spotlight on the next generation of mobile banking applications and recent advances in mobile commerce and payments. The event will take place June 3-5 at the InterContinental Miami Hotel in Florida.
The event’s keynote presentation will be given by mobile banking pioneer and ING Canada Chief Information Officer Charaka Kithulegoda, whose bank was one of the first to let its millions of customers log in to online banking accounts through Facebook. Kithulegoda’s presentation, “The Online, Mobile and Social Banking Experience,” will also explore the bank’s use of advanced security technologies and voice recognition.
“As the mobile banking market matures and the number and type of devices escalate, bank executives, CIOs, product managers and developers confront an increasing number of difficult decisions and potential consequences,” said Penny Crosman, editor in chief of Bank Technology News and conference chairman. “This conference helps decision makers identify and evaluate risk and reward in new program and product development.”
During the three-day summit, more than 20 sessions will address a wide range of topics, including: How Mobile Platforms are Revolutionizing Banking; The Value Exchange Among Merchants, Banks and Consumers; and What Banks Have Learned (or Have Yet to Learn) from Payments Start-Ups.
Last year the summit drew nearly 600 financial services executives from organizations such as, Bank of America, Capital One, LivingSocial, Nordstrom, Walmart, AT&T, Verizon, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard Worldwide and American Express.
