MasterCard at Money 2020 – the Future of Connected Commerce

MasterCard to Engage Developers, Drive Industry Dialogue and Showcase Digital Innovations

PURCHASE, N.Y. – October 19, 2015 – The digital shift in payments is the biggest change in the industry since the introduction of plastic, and the next five years could see more change than took place in the previous fifty. MasterCard is thinking differently, designing products differently and innovating faster than ever before to make sure every MasterCard account is as digital as the consumers using them around the world. Tweet: Join #MasterCard at #Money2020 to hear about the future of connected commerce #LetsConnect

Engaging Developers to Create the “Next Big Thing”

On Saturday, October 24, MasterCard will be one of nine companies sponsoring the Money20/20 Hackathon. The MasterCard Open API team will be on hand to help participants build real and scalable innovations that reach new sets of customers around the world. They’ll also challenge participants to create a VIP shopping experience by leveraging the power of connected devices and visualization, with winners receiving an amazing set of prizes.

Driving Industry Dialog on the Future of Commerce

Over the course of the conference, MasterCard executives will participate in moderated panel discussions within tracks covering innovation, tokenization, safety and security, financial inclusion, and biometrics, among others.

Complementing the formal show agenda, MasterCard executives will lead several sessions within its space in the exposition hall (Booth #1109) as part of a “conference within a conference” series. All Money20/20 attendees are invited to attend these #LetsConnect sessions, with additional details on the topics and corresponding calendar found here.
Showcasing What’s Next in the Future of Commerce
Also within its exhibit space (Booth #1109), MasterCard will feature live immersive product demonstrations – from simplifying the way you do laundry, speeding mobile payments at gas stations and convenience stores, to using a “selfie” to complete a payment – showcasing its work with partners and customers to power the future of connected commerce.
