9:00 AM – 10:15 AM | Opening Roundtable: Payments At The Edge

Family cars sans steering wheels, kitchen appliances that recognize when you’ve run out of an important item, battery-less devices. These are the realities of the 21st century industrial revolution happening behind closed doors everyday. The internet of things, a term coined by Kevin Ashton in 1999 is finally gaining momentum – but how will these advances change the way payments occur? Industry visionaries will open Innovation Project 2016 by outlining the future of commerce in regards to the internet of things. In the words of Ashton, it’s as easy to predict the future as it is hard to believe. Join us to find out why you should believe the hype.

11:15 AM – 12:00 PM | Who’s Enabling Payments Innovation at the Edge?

Without the back-end technology, the internet of things, while wonderful in theory, would not be applicable to the payments ecosystem. Countless companies have tried and failed due to a combination of factors – one of which being the lack of cross-industry coordination. Hear from the innovators who are allowing payments at the edge to become reality, where they see roadblocks and how they believe the paymentscape will change in the next few years.

11:10 AM – 12:10 PM | Financial Payments Services At The Edge

The Tortoise and the Hare. The well-known story of a boastful hare who is challenged to a race by a ridiculously slow- moving tortoise. We all know the end….confident of winning, the hare takes a nap midway through the race, only to awaken to the Tortoise beating him, slowly but surely, to the finish line. Can this story be compared to today’s financial institutions and the innovators who are taking their customers? Join industry thought leaders as they debate who will get to the finish line first, who will be competitive long term and who will have the final say on safe, secure and FAST payments.

Battle patent trolls with Strategic Partnerships and Collaborations – How the FinTech community can proactively address one if its greatest legal risks!

Has your company been sued by a patent troll yet? If not it is only a matter of time. Every year companies spend over $29 billion litigating and settling with patent trolls, and the average defendant in a patent troll lawsuit has an annual revenue of just $10.1 million. So if you haven’t been sued by a patent troll yet, it’s only a matter of time. LOT Network is non-profit organization formed by Uber, Google, SAP, Canon, Dropbox, Purestorage, Red Hat, and Solar City to solve for the patent troll problem. Join us during lunch to hear from a panel of IP executives from Google, Canon, and Pega Systems, to learn how they are combating the problem, and take advantage of the opportunity to ask these preeminent experts any other questions on IP that you may have. In the last week alone Pega Systems, Box, Logitech, and Lenovo have joined LOT that already includes companies like JP Morgan Chase, Ford, Hyundai, and over 30 start-up companies working together.

Rich Panel Discussions

We’ve reinvented the “panel” format.

Q. What do you get when you pair global luminaries such as Al Gore, Russell Simmons, Warren Buffett, Sir Terry Leahy, Eric Ries, Larry Summers, Richard Clarke, and Michael Porter with CEOs and C-suite executives from the most powerful payments and commerce companies on the planet?

A. An off-the-record discussion that reaps some of the richest insights about the future of payments and commerce.

Our content, conversations and format are what drive our program and are what keep C-suite executives glued to their seats for the duration of our two-day event. It’s why we’ve earned the reputation of being “The Davos of Payments.”
