Money might make the world go around but it's technology that makes the money go around. And it's going around at an unnerving pace, as new and disruptive technologies offer new ways for consumers to hold, control and spend their money.


One upcoming event promises to help participants get their arms around the former while meeting the expectations of the latter.

The ATM & Mobile Innovation Summit will bring together an audience of financial industry professionals and payment industry thought leaders to explore the rapidly changing frontlines of consumer financial services.

In advance of the third annual summit, co-sponsored by the Electronic Funds Transfer Association and Networld Media Group (publisher of ATM Marketplace and Mobile Payments Today), here is a look at a few of the sessions offered and the experts prepared to share their knowledge about the innovations and influences that will shape, regulate and deliver the global financial services of a fast-approaching future:

Opening Keynote: The Future of Payments

As founder of Boldrocket, an organization created to help all people gain access to the latest technologies and financial products, Andrew Tarver is known for challenging the thinking of financial leaders. Boldrocket works with exponential and disruptive technologies that will transform financial services and the connected industries at the heart of the payments revolution.

In a keynote designed to realign assumptions about the future of payments, ATMs, cash, mobile and banking, Andrew will address:

  • how disruptive technologies will change financial services and the broader world;
  • how changing customer habits and the "people revolution" will change interactions with FIs;
  • the importance of exponential thinking; and
  • the impact of change on audience members and their organizations.

The Omnichannel Panel

We've come a long, long way from floppy disks and brick-size mobile phones. Consumers today take for granted that the technologies they use will be interconnected, synchronized and seamless, whether they need to adjust the thermostat or access cash at an ATM.

As they invest in an omnichannel future, FIs face a multitude of challenges in coordinating, securing and monetizing multiple channels. This panel of bankers will explore best practices and trends for making it all work: 

  • Troy Cullen, president and general manager, Elan Financial Services
  • Bernie McLaughlin, president and CEO, Point Breeze Credit Union
  • Patricia O’Donnell, SVP, client solutions-enterprise payments, Key Bank
  • Gary Pearcy, SVP, deposit products group, Wells Fargo
  • Moderator: Ed O’Brien, director, banking channels advisory service, Mercator Advisory Group

State of the Industry: Bitcoin, Apple Pay, Android Pay and ATMs

Given the interests involved, expect a lively exchange that falls somewhere between a mild-mannered panel discussion and a Fox News debate (without the name-calling). Audience members will be invited to chime in about the pros and cons of Apple Pay, Android Pay, Bitcoin and the impact of all of it on cash and ATMs.

  • Dan Kramer, SVP, marketing and merchant services, Shazam Network
  • Daniel Littman, senior payments research consultant, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
  • Paul Vigna, co-author, The Age of Cryptocurrency
  • Moderator: Michael Lee, CEO, ATMIA

Awards Dinner Party — Terrace at 101 Constitution

After a full day of informative sessions, conference-goers will be treated to an evening of great food, conversation, and panoramic views of the Capitol from the popular venue Terrace at 101 Constitution. Dinner will be followed by a special awards ceremony presenting honors in four categories:

  • Most Innovative Financial Institution
  • Most Innovative ATM Technology
  • Most Innovative Mobile Technology
  • Excellence, Leadership and Innovation (ELI) Award

Topics: ATMs, Banking, Bitcoin, Regulation, Trends / Statistics
