Forwarded from: R. A. Hettinga <rahat_private> ......... the sixth annual Consult Hyperion forum ......... .............. D I G I T A L ... M O N E Y ................ "No other conference in our industry compares" Jack Selby, VP Intl. Business Development, Paypal sponsored by Vodafone supported by NCipher and American Express London April 2nd/3rd, 2003 .......................The Event............................ Now in its sixth year, the annual Digital Money Forum will be two days of interactive discussion and debate from the centre of the digital money world. The Forum is not about technology or marketing: it is about the whole subject of the digitisation of money and the implications of that process for individuals, businesses and governments. A central theme of the sixth forum will be the resurgence of interest in new technologies for cash replacement: peer-to-peer electronic payment, contactless smart cards, mobile phones as mobile wallets and so on. Both speakers and delegates will be leaders in the field, looking at the evolution of retail electronic payments from the consumer, regulatory, bank, merchant, legal, sociological and other perspectives. With experts in financial systems, interactive TV, mobile commerce, mass transit, retail and related subjects gathered together, the Forum will continue to be the place to be for anyone who wants to understand Digital Money. Last year, the audience came from Europe, North America and the Far East to discuss topics ranging from the plans of banks and payment schemes and new European regulation to commodity and community currencies. This year, the subjects already on the agenda include the success of mass transit operators in replacing cash at points of sale to mobile payment schemes and from the digitisation of local exchange trading systems to electronic cash in developing countries. .....................The Programme..........................
