Mobile Money Expo 2016 is just around the corner

by | Jan 22, 2016

The Mobile Money Expo, a mobile financial services focused event held annually is now in its 6th year.

Leading innovators and decision makers from international money transfer operators, financial services providers, financial technology providers, agent network operators, mobile financial services providers, regulators and stakeholders from the supply and demand side of the financial technology and remittance industry will be meeting in Lagos, Nigeria for a two-day event to address, lowering transaction cost.

The conference set for February 2nd to 3rd, 2016 is coming just as Nigeria prepares to license non-bank remittance providers for out-bound and in-bound international remittances in 2016.

According to the event director at MobileMoneyAfrica, Emmanuel Okoegwale, ‘Africa has made great strides in mobile technology adoption and penetration. However, despite the pervasive coverage of such mobile networks across Africa, technological innovation has yet to drive down costs in Africa’s remittance markets.’

The barriers to cost-reduction, challenges and opportunities in the African remittance market, the emergence of digital remittances such as mobile money, online transfers and crypto-currencies in lowering remittance cost for Africans are some of the subject matter areas to be considered at the conference being held at the prestigious Lagos Oriental hotel, Nigeria.

Registration is still open and speakers from leading money transfer operators and financial technology providers such as Transfast, xpressmoney, TransferTo, Xpressmoney, Tagattitude, Redcloud, HelloPaisa will keynote the event.
