Payments giant added to speaker and sponsor list for upcoming conference

Visa will be appearing at the upcoming Monetising Mobile as both a speaker and a sponsor.

Monetising Mobile: Exploring Opportunities in Mobile Payments takes place on Wednesday May 25th at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London.

The event will examine exciting new ideas such as in-app payments, try-before-you-buy, pay by mobile and near field communication (NFC).

Visa is already engaged in multiple trials related to NFC and mobile payments, which it will outline at the conference.

Mary Carol Harris, VP of innovation and new product at Visa Europe Mobile, said: “With Visa's contactless technology already in the hands of millions consumers across Europe, mobile is the next frontier.

"Visa is actively working with operators, handset manufacturers and producers of contactless accessories to enable handsets for mobile payments.

“We look forward to sharing our vision for innovation and market development at Monetising Mobile.”
