Money20/20 in the year 2020 was always going to be a significant event. None of us could have foreseen just how significantly different it would turn out to be, of course!
Potentially, this will be the biggest and most diverse in the 18-year history of the payment industry’s premier conference. Forced by events to go exclusively online, it is free and open to all, cross-sector and entirely without borders, thanks to a global livestream co-ordinated over 18 hours by M20/20 in New York.
It would be disingenuous to say we won’t miss the buzz and intensity of the physical conference; the surprise encounters; the test of endurance as you race between gigs; collapsing in the bar at night. But, if there is one thing that defines this industry, it is change. We’re comfortable with it; it excites us; and, as you’ll read throughout this special edition, it’s now happening at warp speed. Trends we’ve commentated on for years, accelerated by a global crisis, be it artificial intelligence (AI) in the back office, migration to the Cloud, or challengers finding their sweet spot in the value chain and wrapping an alternative user experience around it.
For this issue, we’ve brought together a selection of providers doing something radically different in all those areas; offering us a new vision, post-COVID. But it’s just a taste of what’s on offer over the next four days online. Tune in to www.money2020.com/moneyfest. Get involved in the debates and take advantage of the awesome new networking platform. Then plan to come back next year. In person.
