The MRC Vegas show did not disappoint this year, as per usual! It was four jam-packed days of extreme networking, learning and business expansion. Payments & Cards Network benefits from attending the MRC show each year to meet with existing clients & prospecting for new, additionally to stay fluent on the most recent payment trends. We’re networkers, after-all, and we love seeing the camaraderie within the ecosystem. I genuinely believe the inclusion of all parts of the payments industry is what makes the MRC different, and ultimately high-caliber - you have retail, ecomm, brick & mortar, FIs, PSPs, and vendors of all kinds.
My personal favorite session was one presented by WorldPay discussing the mobile payment journey and how consumers are adopting the push for mobile payments, the most interesting fact was that WorldPay’s research found was that “emerging country’s consumers are willing to pay more for goods & services for a better mobile payment experience.”
Make sure that MRC Annual Conference is in your conference budget for 2019!!
