PARTNER NEWS: Carta Worldwide is preparing to welcome leaders from across the payments and financial technology industry to the first Mobey Day in North America, to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto from 7-8 December.
The event will bring together speakers from PayPal, IBM, Transferwise, SecureKey, World First, Visa, Mastercard, Trov, CaixaBank and TD Canada Trust to discuss and understand how to change consumer behaviour through new mobile payment experiences.
Mobey Day Toronto will also play host to the Visa Bank of the Future UI/UX Challenge, where millennials are invited to design a completely new banking and payment app that integrates a suite of Visa Developer APIs.
