Consumers & Payment Technology: Their Impact on Strategies for the Cash Cycle

25 July 2017 at 4:00pm (HK time) 

Technology has had a major impact on the payments landscape. Where once cash was the only option available, today consumers have a plethora of options at their fingertips to pay their rent, bills, daily items and each other. We are without doubt entering a new paradigm for payments. Cards continue to be widely accepted and smartphones are increasingly used by the younger generation to make payments and to manage their money.

As the cash industry plans strategies for the future it's important to understand the impact of this new paradigm on the level of cash transactions and therefore the cash cycle. Of course, the situation varies country to country but we can begin to spot trends and explore what the future may hold.

In advance of the Asia Cash Cycle Seminar (ICCOS) 2017, this webinar will explore the following themes:

• The payments landscape in Asia
• The changing payment habits of the millennial generation
• What drives payment choice?
• What is the impact of technology on strategies for the cash cycle

The great benefit of the webinar approach is that even before the session begins in Bangkok, both panelists and delegates will be informed and ready to debate, providing fertile ground for an innovative discussion and creating a positive impact on the debate. We would be delighted if you could join us on this journey.
