There’s no denying the prepaid industry is in transition. Four topics surfaced repeatedly across four days and 40 sessions, in workshops, panels and presentations, in private discussions, and in our one-on-one interviews.
This free 36-Page Prepaid Expo 2011 Executive Summary is the ultimate window into the state of the industry:
• Technological advancement (particularly mobile, which despite years of unfulfilled prophecy is inevitable and closing fast, led by dramatic innovation in emerging international markets)
• Economic and socio-cultural upheaval (critical growth drivers yet to be exploited to full potential)
• Globalization (top emerging markets – especially India and China – tend to be under-banked cash economies with high mobile penetration and with fewer of the infrastructure barriers that continue to restrict prepaid to swiping in the States)
• Intense legislative and regulatory scrutiny (a flashpoint topic in 2011)
With more than 1,700 attendees and roughly 125 speakers spanning all facets of the prepaid chain – issuers, processors, retailers, government agents, technologists and other third-party providers – there was no shortage of diverse perspectives, yet they all held to the common thread of an evolving, maturing industry.
