Money 20/20 2016

That’s a wrap on another Money 20/20! More than 11,000 attendees from more than 3,000 companies and 75 countries came together in Las Vegas this week to partake in the world’s largest payments and financial services innovation event. Here’s what some of our executives took away from the industry event of the year:

Serena Smith, Chief Administrative Officer and Head of International Payments:  “What a great time at Money 20/20.  This greatest value is getting to talk with just about everyone in the payments industry and discuss ideas and look into our crystal balls about what is the next trend.  It’s all about Digital and Faster…. but what does that all mean?  I look forward to what we will see next.”

 Dan Brames, Group Executive – Retail Payments Group:  “48 hours. 13 meetings. Endless opportunities. A great week at Money 20/20.”

 Bob Legters, Chief Product Officer:  “Money 20/20 continues to grow and evolve each year.  What started several years ago as sharing and discussion, and it has transformed into partnership and collaboration. More and more we are creating strategy and product across retail and financial channels.  The show in 2017 is about the future of payments, the digital channel and new integrations demonstrating how consumers’ lives will be improved by new experiences.”

 Jim Johnson, Chief Operating Officer:  “Influencing, incenting, and securing digital payment experiences was a dominant theme this year at Money2020.  Many of my conversations with customers, partners, and competitors were dominated with the question of how can we continue to utilize data and digital footprints to evolve our ecosystem.”

 Bastian Knoppers, Senior Vice President of Card Production:  “The challenges we continue to hear about with the U.S. version of the EMV migration are directly related to it being driven by a liability shift vs. a mandate.”

 Esther Pigg, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy “Money 20/20 was an explosion of new fintechs, exciting technology and announcements from key players.

Brian O’Neill, Chief Client Officer: “What stood out for me was the breadth of content across the many different verticals where payments are at play.  From the breakout sessions I attended, it was clear that retailers (and bankers) don’t want payments to be something their customers think about, but rather a seamless part of their overall shopping experience regardless of the channel they connect on.”

The week was filled with networking, shared knowledge and thought-provoking conversations about hot topics, cutting-edge trends and disruptions – we’re so grateful to be able to learn and collaborate with our peers and clients at events like these. We can’t wait to see what next year’s Money 20/20 has in store for us here at FIS!
