Dear Colleagues,

Moving with the market, WIMA MONACO has evolved in its concept. Still continuing to offer the best of NFC, but also bringing to the forefront complementary proximity based (QR, Bluetooth…) and cloud solutions, which may be used in parallel or as stand-alone end-to-end solutions to leverage a seamless user experience. This enhanced and evolved new concept for WIMA, offers a wider variety of tools for marketers to consider, when implementing new innovative and engaging mobile customer services connecting the physical and digital worlds.

Keeping ahead of the game, WIMA continues to bring you unique insights of how the market is moving forward for different verticals through an informative conference agenda, innovative exhibits and various animations throughout the event.

Big Data analytics is also a hot topic in relation to proximity solutions which bring a wealth of information about consumer buying habits, product consumption rate and the effectiveness of marketing campaigns.

For all payment innovators and investors don’t miss our Bitcoin Masterclass, a comprehensive overview of all you need to know to get started in the Bitcoin industry from a technical perspective, then moving on to a business overview presenting applications and use cases. Exciting and disruptive!

If we could sum up in one word what WIMA is about this would be networking. Time and time again both industry leaders and start-ups appreciate the quality of our event and find it the optimal environment for networking with potential partners and customers and we make sure we put plenty of opportunities your way to make the most of networking during breaks, our online networking tool and our new “Speed Networking Session”!

The Principality of Monaco will also play host to the next Celtic-Plus Event and Proposers Day which will be co-located with WIMA from 23 – 24 April. The exhibition area open to attendees from both events, will highlight synergies and offer new insights and opportunities for networking around Celtic-Plus research projects and the ready for market solutions and use cases presented at WIMA.

On behalf of the WIMA Team, we look forward to welcoming you, whether a newcomer or a regular WIMA attendee to the beautiful setting of Monaco from 22 – 24 April for the WIMA MONACO Proximity Experience!

Stay tuned for lots of exciting updates…

Best regards,

Joanna Merchie
