It is that time of the year, when I pack my bags and head off to beautiful Istanbul (Turkey) to attend the Mobile Money & Digital Payments (Global) Conference which is being put together by Clarion Events.
I’m excited to attend this conference for many reasons. Other than meeting old friends, and making new ones, I’ll be speaking at one of the workshops and the conference itself.
I’ve also been invited to a Luncheon hosted by the Turkish Banker’s Association where I get to meet about 15-20 bankers from Istanbul and give a brief talk about what are some of the emerging opportunties in the payments space (this event is being hosted separately from the Conference).
Somewhere during the week I have to visit the Istanbul-based InterBank Card Center (BKM) which launched TROY, which will be Turkey’s own payment system for electronic card payment clearing.

If you would like to meet up with me, ping me and I will be happy to meet up.
Details of my speaking engagements are below.
