I wanted to share some exciting mobile money news with you. The 3rd Annual Mobile Money Canada Conference will occur on September 27, 2011 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
If you are involved in any aspect of mobile money, this is going to be the event of the year in Canada.
We are pleased to announce that the mobile money industry's two leading visionaries, Michael Joseph of Safaricom M-Pesa and Karim Khoja of Roshan M-Paisa, are our distinguished conference keynote speakers. They will share their insights and experiences on what it takes to design, launch, and operate successful mobile money services. This will be like having the Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth of our industry in the house at the same time to help you drive the growth of your own mobile money initiatives - you will not want to miss this.
The conference will also feature speakers and sponsors from the leading mobile banking, mobile payment, and mobile money transfers firms around the world, including BOKU Inc., Kony Solutions, Telepin Software, Yankee Group, Western Union, DonRiver Inc., and more.
